Reminisce Hero

Reminisce is an awesome upcoming recent app launcher. It makes launching recently used apps an extremely quick exercise in finger dexterity.

I’ve seen a lot of jailbreak tweaks over the years, and many of them make the iPhone a more efficient device to use. With that said, you’d be hard pressed to find another tweak that makes launching recent apps as efficient as Reminisce, and that’s just with the preview version.

Interested? We’ve got the goods. Have a look at our hands-on video inside.

As you see from the preview video, Reminisce features quite a few options to configure the tweak to your liking. We’ll get into all of the particulars once the tweak gets closer to launch. For now, just know that it’s coming, and it’s going to make launching your recently used apps a breeze.

Stay tuned to iDownloadBlog for the latest updates, and be sure to show developer, Brian Cooper, some love while you’re at it.

What do you think?

    Any E.T.A? This tweak is exactly what I have been looking for.

  • Vincent Tse

    I can imagine conflicts with Zephyr and Google Chrome?

    • TeddyBearStand

      Looks like it uses the activator action, just have to be careful not to invoke it accidentally.

      • Andyxyoona

        Nope. It doesn’t use Activator 😉

      • TeddyBearStand

        Well thats something.

    Looks like one of Sentry’s old concepts (link omitted because of the link filter, it’s on the bottom of page 2 of his Dribbble). No offence to the dev, I prefer the animation mechanics of Sentry’s concept (I still prefer the stock switcher+MultiStorey over either, that’s personal preference). Maybe they could get in touch and flesh out some things.

    • Brian Cooper

      This preview has a graphical glitch and should have linen behind it. I actually hadn’t even seen the concept (not that I remember anyway) until someone else pointed it out to me. I came to this completely differently. Anyway, it does have several animations already, and this is just a preview of a WIP 🙂

    • Liam Mulcahy

      Yeah my 1st thought when I saw this was is this sentry’s?

  • GAIAStevef

    So how do you switch springboard pages then ? Does the tweak only activate on swipes to the center of the screen ?

    I can see how this would be pretty annoying in any kind of full screen game.

  • Gurudas G

    See it’s tweaks like this that make me miss my jailbreak even more 🙁

    • Liam Mulcahy

      If I lost my jailbreak I would update to iOS 7 beta. Using the update+shift method,

      • Gurudas G

        Yup I am on iOS 7 Beta LOL it’s pretty sick

  • n0ahcruz3

    Its cool tweak. as long as i dont double press the home button.

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Pretty sweet. Hope there is an option to disable in certain apps like games. It must not interfere with zephyr either. Just sayin…

    • Brian Cooper

      Yes, you will be able to disable in certain apps, although it may conflict with zeyphr purely because of the swipe on the side. It will only mess with one side at a time though.

  • Rudy

    Very useful idea and great tweak !!!

    iOS 5?

    • JS3

      if your really on ios5 then there is a major problem bub

      • Liam Mulcahy

        unless he has a old device

      • disqus_v9wvOV65Dn

        iOS 5.1.1 to be exact and I just didn’t update because iOS 6 is crap and didn’t offer anything worth updating for and should have been called iOS 5.1.2 and most of the features apple was touting for iOS 6 already existed on Cydia. Even after the jailbreak came out I didn’t see anything in cydia that was really worth updating for so I just stayed on 5.1.1. It’s only recently (within the last month) that I even thought of updating but obviously I can’t now until iOS 7 JB

      • disqus_paTN0yjulv

        There are various reason why people dont update and many people are still on 5.1.1. iOS 7 JB may not even come out this year. Look how long iOS 6 took. I don’t think it’s that much of a stretch to at least ask about iOS 5 support on tweaks. When iOS 7 JB drops then okay but until then…

    reminisk? 3 times you pronounced it that way?

    reminisce |ˌreməˈnis|
    verb [ no obj. ]
    indulge in enjoyable recollection of past events: they reminisced about their summers abroad.

  • Ismail ‘marco’ Azeem

    amazing but now InstaLauncher is no longer needed

    • Brent

      This only shows you your most recent apps. InstaLauncher shows you everything and has sections for recents and favourites. However I think the recents section in InstaLauncher only shows you apps that you launched using IL, so if you didn’t launch the app using IL it won’t appear.

  • FFF84

    it looks like app launcher in Ubuntu mobile os

  • Liam Mulcahy

    I like it

  • Thats dope.

  • Freddy Born

    Let me guess… No iPad support?

  • Pro fun user

    Real good thing
