‘Aero’ now available for download on Cydia

By , Apr 2, 2012

Aero is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to switch apps in style via custom animations. We’ve already had some significant hands-on time with Aero last week, and we were excited by what we saw.

Aero adds a whole host of custom animations that allow you to switch between apps in very unique ways. It’s a tweak designed by SBCoders, the same folks behind Deck, so you know it’s quality.

If you’ve been waiting on pins and needles for Aero’s release, then wait no more; Aero can be downloaded from Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $1.99. What do you think?

    Looks like an extremely choppy animation after selecting an app from within the switcher

    Works good but could use a way to dismiss besides using the home button

    For some reason Cydia doesn’t show in the switcher, other jailbreak apps do though.

    Hopefully they’ll include a library of high res icons soon. I love it and will use it, but I look forward to having non-grainy icons one day maybe.

    It does not really close the app, it remains open using ram!!! and I have to use again the old multitasking…. Also I have to press the home in order to go back, it does not recognize the gesture in order to close

      Agreed, another app that claims it closes other apps but doesnt. Seen a few decent switchers and yet they all have the same issue, they don’t take programs out of memory. Sad cause I bought yet another thinking these guys probably got it right. Maybe in the next update?? I hope!

        I read an entire article from a reliable source like that said apps in the background do no continue using ram. They stop after a while. Otherwise Apple would have given us a way to close out the sometimes 20, 30 or more apps running. Do a search and see for yourself.

    Also a respring clears the Aero switcher! This doesn’t happen in the native switcher.
