Multify Auto Expanding Keyboard

Good news! Multify has just been released on Cydia. The highly anticipated tweak, which brings true multitasking to iOS 8, is available for purchase right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

Since our last review of the tweak, some new changes have been included, headlined by a new auto expanding keyboard. How does this new keyboard feature work? Watch our new hands-on video for the details.

One of the things that you guys noticed from my original Multify video was that when apps were resized, the keyboards could become really difficult to type on due to their small size. With this latest update, windows will automatically expand to their full size whenever the keyboard interface appears on screen. Once you’re finished typing, the window will contract back to its edited size.


This is a huge feature for Multify, and brings the tweak one step closer to being freely used in real-world situations. Tweaks like this have always garnered interest from jailbreakers, but they usually don’t remain a part of a user’s workflow longterm. With practical implementation details like auto-expanding keyboards, Multify may be set to buck this trend.

Along with the auto-expanding keyboards, some of Multify’s preferences have been cleaned up along with the obligatory bug fixes. There’s only one other feature that I have my sights set on, and that’s the Window snapping that you find in Windows’ Aero interface. Being able to auto resize and snap apps without having to deal with tedious manual resizing would be aces.

Multify’s lead developer, John Corbett, says the team’s been reading your comments, and listening to suggestions about possible feature additions and changes. He’s listened to our thoughts on the keyboard sizes, so there’s no reason to believe that he won’t address our concerns with window snapping and/or auto resizing in the future.

What do you think about Multify’s new features? Are you exciting for its release? Drop us a note down below in the comments section. If you haven’t already read our original review of the tweak, click here to do so now.

    Meh… Not for my iPhone… iPad, yes.

    • iPhoneWINS

      i just want the real back grounding..

  • fiiiiine

    same as AnoNymouz.

  • Al

    Using it both on the iPad & iPhone… Definitely a well polished tweak. These past few days has brought some great tweaks… Jailbreaking is alive and well.

  • Ben Kin

    Ok I know hard work goes into tweaks and that developers should get paid for what they develop but lately more tweaks are becoming less free and a little expensive. I’ve always paid for my tweaks but honestly every time I see a new tweak its a little over priced.
    And not all the developers update their apps/tweaks for free. We have to pay for a “upgrade”

    Rant over

  • Wa1t

    this is definitely one of those i need to try before forking over 5 bones!
    i smell serious buyers remorse brewing…………..

    • TonyC

      Agree. I don’t know why developers don’t offer a Lite version, either time- or feature-limited. Try before you buy.

      • coLin

        too much work probably idk

  • iPhoneWINS

    hmmmmmm… what happened to that other tweak 2 moths ago that was supposed to do lathes also? all i want is backgrounder but no i keep getting these over done tweaks

    • Ds

      I know reachapp is one of them and it is free but still has some bugs and hasn’t been updated in awhile either. another tweak that comes to mind is OSE but I doubt that will ever get updated.

  • iPhoneWINS

    Jeff…. please talk about how it is on landscape mode..

  • Freddy Born

    is there any way to pay with psc?

  • Tommy Gumbs

    Hey Jeff, my wife could hearing the music to the vid as I watched. She wanted to know if I was watching iPhone porn…….YES…..keep it up man. Good work.

  • ថាន ហាំងស៊ា

    wait jailbreak 8.2

  • oj.420

    Jeff, is it working on ios 8.2 beta 2 jb?

  • ProSzakal Aszakal

    After testing for a while, I can say this tweak working well in all situation without any issues, every thing working stable and smooth, only one thing I don’t like is when you are in multifly and you sliding down the app to corner apps always go into landscape mode is better to go into edit mode… I Think they will fix this, they should updating and making this tweak even better, I can accept after pay 5$. I Recommend this tweak, it’s jus working and is very handy.

  • Regginald Williams

    Does not play well with FaceTime.

  • ShawnTXDFW

    I’m confused as to why I keep getting this message. Any help here please?! I have Internet and have no problems accessing it. So what’s the deal?!

    • Are you on T-Mobile?

      • ShawnTXDFW

        Nope. I’m on AT&T I think I got it finally though. All I did was enable it via a gesture with Activator and seemed to start working. I have so much installed that I thought maybe it wasn’t working well with other tweaks installed.

  • Shaw

    Seems great. However, the launch methods are too bother. 3 activation methods… Hope the developer could simplifier these.

  • I am loving every bit of this tweak!

  • Frank Lobitz

    can it do a vid and a audio at the same time?

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Rlly like this and made the purchase but my folders open then close with multify installed, work fine without it. Hmmm, maybe someone else incurred this issue. No?

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Well, but t was folder closer 8 tht was the conflict. Uninstalled and problem solved. Tho I am missing it, just a lil bit. Lol

  • Arktik

    Anyone else having springboard issues trying to use auxo legacy and multify together?

    • $mõkiêlüv3

      i have and i dont want to get rid of auxo

  • iPhoneWINS

    its perfect for iPad screen but the iPhone 6+ screen is to small to make is effective in 98% of situations …

    the controls are a bit complicated and cumbersome

  • Sunny127

    This tweak is is amazing. Got it on my iPhone 6 plus, IOS 8.0.2
    It opened a whole new methodology for me using multitasking. This is the best tweak ever! i would buy a new phone for such a tweak, and it costs only 5 USD.

  • Callum Jenner

    It doesn’t work with iOS 8.2 beta 2
