‘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

    this sux… pass

  • just bought it, I’m not getting any of the chop… works pretty good.

    Best switcher that I’ve tried yet.

  • jose castro

    it tells me its not compatible with 5.1 🙁

  • 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.
