Switchability

A new upcoming jailbreak tweak promises to combine multiple iOS features into a cool new app switching interface called Switchability. The tweak, which is previewed inside on video, combines the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus’ Reachability mode along with the App Switcher and Safari’s 3D tab view. The result of such a combination may seem like it would be a mess, but after seeing it demonstrated in the preview video, I think it might just work.

Switchability will feature numerous customization options to use the tweak as you desire. It features the ability to remove titles from the App Switcher cards, font and color customizations, size controls, favorite app support in order to quickly launch a favorite app via a shortcut, and more. It also features unique swipe to delete, delete all, and current app delete abilities.

There’s still no word on when Switchability will be released, or how much it will cost. The developer—Vedboon—is still working on the tweak, and he’s reached out to the jailbreak community via Reddit to solicit ideas. So far it looks as if Activator support will make the cut, but the jury is still out on any options or additional features that will ship with the public build of the tweak.

What do you think about Switchability? Do you think it’s a good idea, or do you believe it’s far too ambitious to be useful in real world day-to-day situations?

    I like the idea, but I prefer the interface of the Auxo quick switcher. Although I must say, this is definitely an innovative tweak, looking at the customizations available. The favorite app idea is particularly nice.

    We need more Reachability tweaks.

    • Elias Chao

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. When I knew about Reachability, the first I thought was “OMG, there will be awesome tweaks for it”.

  • that is also a great space for iWidgets

  • MrVids132

    Put Switchability and CCToggles together. Now that is one hell of a tweak.

    • Elias Chao

      I’d beat that Auxo 3 might take advantage of something like what you said 😛

      Do you mean by Callbar ??

  • nonchalont

    Be great as it will reduce wear on the home button.

  • James

    I think it’s gonna beat Auxo 2. looking forward to it. Thumbs up!

  • Andrew

    I love it. I want it NOOOOWWWW.

  • James G

    Love it. Brings new functionality to Reachability and the only thing missing from App Switcher is “Recents” but I doubt that feature is used much.

  • AnoNymouz

    Really like this tweak.

  • Truc

    Seriously? Do they know the meaning of reachability?
    How can one reach those tabs with one hand?

      lollolololololol thank you. this made me laugh

    • Javier

      I appreciate your concern. I personally set the custom slider to 60% (apple by default sets it to 35.75%). I am able to slide and launch apps with one hand efficiently (and makes it easier to use top buttons in apps). In my latest build, you can dynamically change the height while in reachability.

        I like where you’re headed with this. Great concept. Visually though, the app cards appear to have too much keystone to me. I’d find it much more visually appealing if that was not as pronounced.

        Best wishes completing the tweak.

    Looks promising! Keep us updated

    • Gabriel Diaz

      Maybe just needs a better/smoother design.. But its still has some work to be done I’m sure

  • Rak S

    This, but with the flat card interface would be nice… Good idea.
