Stratos background colors

The highly anticipated multitasking manager tweak Stratos is now available in Cydia. Largely inspired by the original version of Auxo, Stratos is a beautiful multitasking tweak that aims to “simplify the way you interact with your iPhone.”

Our own Jeff Benjamin recently took Stratos for a spin and had plenty of good things to say about it, despite a few hiccups that should be ironed out in future updates. For a complete overview of Stratos, make sure to check out Jeff’s review.

Stratos is available in Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $1.99. If you do decide to download it, come back here to less us know what you think about this new multitasking tweak.

    Pretty useless, considering you can’t really see the preview of app like stock multi tasking. Why make it more difficult to access control centre?

    • Blip dude

      Useless?? Maybe (comes down to perception) Making it difficult?? It’s just an 1 or 2 swipes isn’t it??

      • Linton Findlay

        1 or 2 extra swipes than nessecary, just for a different looking mutlitasking, that is less functional because you can’t see the previews properly

      I see where you’re going with it. I agree. Why not just use Tage and keep ControlCenter the same as it is. It’s a nice alternative but this is typically for people who just want their phone to look DIFFERENT. NOT for people like you and me who like tweaks that are more FUCTIONAL than Apple’s stock choices.
      Nowadays tweaks are LESS function and look different than looking NATIVE and MORE functional!

      It is more for esthetics than for practicality. It definitely looks nicer than app switcher

    • Bruno

      Difficult? WTF?!? you only have to swipe up from the bottom left! LOL

      Before ranting about anything perhaps you should discover the preference pane of your tweaks :p

    Looks amazing..

  • john diaz

    Classic but modern

  • HoodFlow

    Does somebody has the same issue? After swiping up to open Stratos, I often have to click twice to open an app…

    • John Smith

      Same here

    • Merman123

      I emailed the team. They replied saying they were working a fix. It was really bothering me.

      • Part of the reason why I never buy a new tweak right away. I would rather wait for some feedback on how the tweak runs. I have been burnt too many times in the past.

      • HoodFlow

        Thanks! I would prefer Auxo 3, but it has an similar issue. After closing an app with swipe gesture, I have to click twice on display to open another app

    • Abhinav Chaudhary

      When will people stop using the word click, it’s tap not click….duh!

    Let us know

  • Flid

    How’s the lag? (iPhone5s specifically)
    Auxo3 was just unusable. I’m loving the three zone swipe idea here, but don’t want to be burned again.

    • eXoguti097

      No lag.. I still didn’t like this tweak

  • ថាន ហាំងស៊ា

    I need jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 before use this tweak.

  • ceevee369

    Trust me on this one: combine Gridswitcher ( multi panel preview) and Slede2Kill8 pro and you don’t need anything else. Double tap home button to see all open apps and 1 swipe down to close them all. 1.5 seconds, no lag. Best ever combo.

    This tweak keeps on crashing my phone, it seems incompatible with some tweaks or apps on my phone, maybe auxo 3
