Auxo 2 iPad 2

As promised, a3tweaks has released Auxo 2 version 1.1, and it comes with full iPad support. I’ve been playing with Auxo 2 1.1 for a while, and I can confirm that the iPad support is well-done.

To be honest, Auxo 2 feels more suited for the iPad than the iPhone. I noted in our Auxo 2 review that the tweak’s Multi-Center view, a mode that combines both Control Center and the App Switcher, felt a bit cramped on the small 4″ screen of the iPhone 5s. It’s the complete opposite on the large screen of the iPad.

From a pure functionality standpoint, everything is pretty much the same as the previous version of Auxo 2. The big deal here is addition of iPad support, and it’s well-warranted. 

Everything you know and love about Auxo 2 is here. There’s Multi-Center view, Hot Corners for quickly dismissing apps, and, of course, my favorite feature of Auxo 2, the Quick Switcher.

All of the features found on the iPhone version of Auxo 2 have more or less made the cut, although you will notice less options to fool around with in the tweak’s preferences. This isn’t because Auxo 2 on the iPad is less-featured than its iPhone version, it’s just that the added real estate afforded to the iPad version allows for less finagling with different features to fit everything into view.

At the end of the day, Auxo 2 is well-suited for the iPad, and, in my opinion, the iPad version of Auxo 2 is the definitive version. That’s not to say that it’s completely devoid of issues. In fact, one of the main complaints found with the iPhone version of Auxo 2 is present in version 1.1 for the iPad—the iOS 7 animations are too slow and methodical to keep up with the Quick Switcher. It won’t go noticed if you use the Quick Switcher infrequently, but if you try to take multiple stabs at using it in quick succession, lag will spoil your efforts.

The icons are a bit small in Quick Switcher mode, and sometimes you get little glitches like this

I also noticed that some of the app icons found in the Quick Switcher are kind of weird looking. I’m sure that this is a bug that will be squashed in an upcoming update, but I thought I should bring it to your attention that I encountered this a few times.

The last little quibble that I have with Auxo 2 on the iPad, again, has to do with the Quick Switcher. With the larger screen of the iPad, the Quick Switcher app icons would benefit from a bump in size. They look a tad too small right now on such a large screen.

Despite those few issues, if you own a jailbroken iPad, you should definitely take Auxo 2 for a spin. If you already own Auxo 2, then the 1.1 version is a free upgrade. New users will need to shell out $3.99, and people that bought either the iPhone or iPad editions of the previous version of Auxo get discounts.

Are you a fan of Auxo on the iPad? Let me know what you think about Auxo 2 1.1 in the comments down below.

    iOS 7.1 cri

  • Jose Gonzalez

    Saw the update a couple hours ago, installed it on my iPad Mini Retina and after the respring, it instantly crashes into safe mode, after tapping restart, it resprings and instantly crashes to safe mode again. I have no clue what tweak can be causing the problem. Ive uninstalled many of the tweaks I had.

    Any one else experiencing this?

    1.1 update is working just fine on my 5S though so i don’t know.

    • CAS

      Maybe some control center related tweak? Like ccloader, ccquick or comething like that

      • Jose Gonzalez

        Thanks! didn’t even realize I had ccloader installed. That did it, works fine now!

  • Luism27

    and it gained a bug too

    • Luism27

      here!

      • Lucas Tres

        Wasn’t it suppose to happen? It’s like default Control Center it blurs the app.

      • Luism27

        no. that’s the calendar app in the background… it started to happen since I updated Auxo

      • Kadhir Anand

        Hey, what theme/tweak is the Control Center you have please?

  • Pato_

    I’m just waiting for an update on Auki

    • Danuel Carr

      agreed. I’ll have to settle for the couria beta for the time being.

      • Pato_

        For me couria didn’t work for me I uninstall isx for auki very happy

      • Danuel Carr

        It didn’t work for me either, so I had to install quisic’s beta repo and download the beta (which works better actually). This was my ipad. I couldn’t be happier with auki on the iPhone/iPod.

  • Jeremy

    I’m not sure if it’s the update or not but my battery has been draining really fast since updating Auxo so I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. :/

    • Micaiah Martin

      Auxo is known for this. I installed it and now my iPhone won’t last half a day. No pain no game, man.

    • nfinite

      yeah, after installing auxo 2, my battery draining faster.. just uninstalled it a moment ago.. I just use activator for almost same functionality, albeit not as cool..

      • Jeremy

        I resolved it by doing a hard reboot. After that it hasn’t been heating up my phone or draining the battery so you should consider that as well.

      • nfinite

        thanks for the tip..

  • Svs

    I can’t see the home icon in multi center

  • XboxOne

    Now all whiny iPad owners can shut up.

  • Batman

    Oh man! Jailbreak 7.1!

  • Walter White

    Put it on my iPad 2 but had to remove it. For some reason it made Safari painfully slow and jerky.

  • dnice

    I noticed some bugs in auxo where if you assign page transition animation it messes up in folders sometimes you gotta exit the folder and go back just to see the icons

  • Orion Reyes

    Everytime I activate the Multi-Center in Auxo 2, my Aiplay button dissapears, does anyone have this problem? A3Tweks does not answer my support mail on the matter.

  • It makes the screen unresponsive for about a second. This sucks 🙁 Maybe I’ll delete it and stick with the four finger gesture 🙁

  • John Willis

    iPad mini 1 and #Auxo2 definitely runs smoother than stock task switcher which I found odd but am very happy!

  • blastingbigairs

    I’m still waiting waiting for a working version of KillBackground for my 5s.

    • Orion Reyes

      Try smartclose in the Ryan Petrich beta repo, it can be used with Activator

      • blastingbigairs

        I will check it out. Thank you sir.

  • Sohail

    I would like an update of Auxo 2 to make it a bit smoother & responsive while swiping from the bottom of the iPad + a little bigger icons & fix for those half icons on Quick Switcher (like on the pictures above)

  • Isaac

    Hi, how i can get this wallpaper?:(

    • blastingbigairs

      Right here my friend. Try a google search next time, wink-wink.

      • Isaac

        thanks, I had been looking for. 🙂

  • Roger Riekki

    Updated to Auxo 2, version 1.1 and it deleted my whole library of 1400 songs. Any fix for this?

  • TDA
