When you open up the iPhone’s app switcher, the status bar fades from view. This means that you can’t view vital statistics like the time, signal strength, and battery life while the app switcher is open.

Now obviously, most people aren’t going to keep their status bars open long enough for this to have a negative impact on the experience, but in some cases, it may be desirable to have access to the status bar while the app switcher is open.

That’s where the clumsily named App Switcher Status Bar comes into play. It places the status bar directly in the app switcher, so that you can always see the iPhone’s vital statistics, even when switching apps.

Once installed, invoke the app switcher, and you will see the status bar residing above the apps in the switcher.

App Switcher Status Bar doesn’t do anything groundbreaking, but for those of you who hate the fact that the status bar disappears when opening the app switcher, then this could be the solution for you.

You can find App Switcher Status Bar on Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $0.99. What do you think? Is it worth it to you?

    How is it clumsily named? Maybe if it were named Ass Switcher Status Bar, I would agree.

  • Nice idea, ruined by putting a price on it. These tweaks should be absolutely free with no further arguments. There is another free tweak newly released that does a better job than this. it has a really similiar name for it.

      Share. The one that I’m thinking off only shows it in the top side on the iPad.

  • For the price, no, it is not worth it. In fact, many developers are smacking prices on absolutely anything they make, complex or not. There is also a free tweak that makes the Status Bar visible when you launch the App Switcher that came out this week too. Not as pretty, but free.

  • How freaking Dumb! And then have to pay for it too! This has got to be the dumbest tweak I’ve ever seen. I’d never pay for something like that. Not worth it. Not when I can (Be Non-Lazy) push a button to see it. Better yet I use zephyr so I don’t even need to press a button. Lol. Just sayin, if your gonna make a tweak and charge for it. Well make one thats worth using and buying.
