App Switcher Brightness is a new jailbreak application – or rather a tweak – that adds a brightness slider to your iPhone app switcher. If you find yourself constantly changing the brightness of your iPhone screen, then App Switcher Brightness will most likely be a right fit for you.

Instead of having to go to Settings > Brightness, you can simply double press the home button to launch the app switcher, flick to the right to have your iPod controls appear, and your brightness control is there…

That’s all App Switcher Brightness does, and for $.99, I sure hope it works as advertised. This app does create a conflict with the App Switcher Volume app that we reviewed before. If you have this installed, you may want to stay away from App Switcher Brightness.

You can get App Switcher Brightness from Cydia.

Is that something you’d use?

    This app is ok or you can save yourself 99cents and take the extra 2.3sec to open the settings and change it there….
    Sheesh how lazy can we get.

      no u fool, it is for situations where the screen is too dim to be seen like in bright sunlight. I need this app.

  • appletiser

    thanks but another pointless tweak that can be just as quickly accessed through SBS :-/

    • appletiser

      I will add that it’s not the insignificant cost, it’s just trivial apps like these that aren’t free just smack a quick money grabbing rip off imo, although if iDB has been sponsored by this dev that’s different 🙂

    Or…use the brightness toggle in SBSettings.. for free

  • @Roc_starr

    Or u can download sbsettings on Cydia and get that option plus whole lot more useful tweaks for free…

  • Beakhand

    But the brightness in sbsettings has issues if u turn down your phone then back on it has the old brightness setting back

  • atavision

    Yeah, I kinda agree with the others here, Seb you’re usually pretty good about posting the stuff that matters, and I know you’re not endorsing this tweak, but why even bother writing about it? SB settings is free, just as easy to access and does a WHOLE lot more, so why give this app builder space on your blog? I know you’re not hurting for content.

  • Ace

    SBSettings all the way. I’m not sure about the app switcher though, but I can use SBSettings on my lock screen 🙂

    all these recent “tweaks” lately like respring and this are all basic features in SBS already lol. these just seem like filler and wastes of time. sorry, it just had to be said.

  • Ryan22

    Sbsettings!!

    • Oscar14A

      I agree dude but you can also YouTube it and get it free

  • stupidbitchtits

    holy a lot of you are whiny bitches.
    I <3 this, and I use SBSettings too.
    It's nice to have options. Christ, it doesn't hurt any of you to have or not have this.

    This app is very useful, nothing to do with laziness you idiots. Have you tried to increase your phones brightness in sunlight when you cant even see anything on your screen?? This app puts it in a easily accessible location for times when the screen is too dim.
