Running iOS 4.1 and Apple’s native multitasking not cutting it for you?

Up until now, options were minimal at most, but an update to the jailbreak app backgrounder was released a few minutes ago that adds support for iOS 4.1.

Personally I rarely use backgrounder due to the fact that most iPhone apps I do use natively support multitasking and fast app switching.  Those few that don’t, I’ve decided to just deal with.

I know there’s still a big community that still relies heavily on the Cydia app, so no doubt this will be news to the ears of those running on iOS 4.1.  What about you?  Which multitasking method do you use?

    Apple’s multitasking … blah it’s not even real multitasking as the apps are only frozen in the background.

    Backgrounder is the way it should be done but i beleive that without multiflow even this great app falls short, so hopefully it too is updated to support 4.1

    I just got an iPhone 4 (coming from a 3G and 3GS running 3.1.3), is there any way to disable Apple’s “multitasking”?

      You have to jailbreak and there is a disable tweak

      • Jeff

        Right. Actually the tweak exists within backgrounder itself that should do this.

    Im mostly concerned with battery life. I usually have 3-4 apps running in the background with backgrounder on 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 but battery got drained pretty fast. Question is, Is the new updated ver. good with battery?
