WeeCloseApps: Kill and close apps directly from Notification Center

By , Mar 6, 2012

WeeCloseApps is a jailbreak widget that resides in Notification Center. Its purpose is built solely around closing and killing both running apps and backgrounded apps.

This tweak is basically the free version of another tweak called ‘ActionSlider’, which we will be covering for your shortly.

Once installed, a slider bar resides in Notification Center, and a slide to the left or to the right yields different actions depending on how you configure the tweak in the Settings app.

Have a look at our video demonstration of WeeCloseApps straight ahead…

As stated, WeeCloseApps is the free version of a more robust tweak called ActionSlider. WeeCloseApps is exclusively built around killing and closing apps and nothing more, whereas ActionSlider contains many more options.

You can find WeeCloseApps on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Do you think it would prove useful in your daily workflow? Let us know what you think about this tweak in the comment section below.

    Seems weird to put that in the notification center. Simpler to install killbackground, double click home button then click on the kill background button.

    I prefer the SBSettings toggle ‘RemoveBackground’ ;)

      me too. I just set removebackground to an activator action to swipe across the status bar and its done. All apps are closed. Faster than pulling down the notification center and then swiping. You can even set it to not close your music app or whatever app you want staying running in the background.

    I use MultiCleaner and set an activator gesture to close and kill the app I’m in and also one to kill all background apps. Also like that you set exceptions for certain apps in settings and even add a toggle to SBsettings if you want.

      That’s certainly a good method as well.

    What’s the difference between this and WeeKillBackground Pro?

    • http://www.youtube.com/myjailbreakmovies/ Jeff Benjamin

      Honestly, not much. Just a different methodology.

    i like removing apps from the app switcher the traditional way.

    • http://www.youtube.com/myjailbreakmovies/ Jeff Benjamin

      That’s understandable, I kind of like that as well. It’s a satisfying feeling.

        yah.and i hate the feeling of that millisecond that your phone freezes every time you close multiple apps using such tweaks. >.<

        I’ve been a tad under the weather, but I’m fine, no worries. Thanks for the concern though :)

      Sure! I love to close apps but i dont like to hold to enter the edit mode, so i use activator to open the switcher in edit mode and then im ready to manually kill them all.

    jeff what is that tweak you have in your notification center that puts the rss feed to the right of your clock/date?

      IntelliScreenX

        Wierd, the slider is not showing up for me, I think because I have IntelliScreenX installed…

    Out of topic. But is there a tweak that removes the in-call status bar while being in a call and trying to multitask ?

  • http://twitter.com/andyops Andrew Dunn

    iOS doesn’t support multitasking and kills apps not being used if it needs memory. So this is kinda pointless, unless you have a lot of GPS and VOIP apps…

      In other words this is kinda useless.
