Switch2

There have been tons of App Switcher tweaks to land on Cydia over the years, but this is certainly one of the more unique looking ones to appear in quite some time. Entitled Switch 2, this upcoming jailbreak tweak brings an expanding-card interface to the iOS App Switcher.

Switch 2’s interface makes it so that you can view up to three apps at the same time, and dismiss apps using simple swipe gestures. Convergence developer, Matt Clarke, has put together a video preview of Switch2 in action. Check it out and let us know what you think about it.

One of the things that makes Switch2 stand out, besides the obvious shrunken card interface, are its animations. The way that the apps contract and expand in and out of the multitasking App Switcher looks particularly slick.

I also like the fact that you can quickly kill apps by swiping down from the App Switcher interface. From there, you’ll find a kill all button that allows you to dismiss all apps at once.

From what we can discern from Clarke’s video preview, Switch2 doesn’t add a wealth of additional and practical features to the App Switcher, but it’s hard to deny how cool it looks in action.

Stay tuned, we’ll be sure to have more about this upcoming tweak as it surfaces. In the meantime, what do you think about Switch2?

    The best app switcher tweak right now is Vertex since Auxo 3 is a corpse.

    • Damian

      I would say the best one is a combination of GridSwitcher with QuickDo

    • omakad

      Its sucks that developer of Auxo didn’t update the tweak yet. I mean he wants money for it but we can’t use it? What’s the point of paying? This tweak does look great. Will definitely try it as soon as it’s out.

  • socrates

    Let’s hope it gets updated for iOS 9 when possible.

  • Al

    Using Auxo Legacy & Tage… Also have ReachApp. Might see if it can replace Auxo Legacy… But i wonder does it have more features than just being an AppSwitcher

    • Damian

      GridSwitcher with QuickDo

      • Al

        Could QuickDo & Activator be used at the same time? I remember reading that when QuickDo is installed.. Activator will be uninstalled..

      • Damian

        Yes it could be but you need to add the following repo Cydia.clezz (dot) com/a

  • This looks great, I’ve been testing out the public beta of iOS9 and the new full screen app switcher is pretty bad, it takes up way too much room. This tweak might look good in the reachability space!

  • David Hvilivitzki

    Looks like android switcher

    • Nick

      That’s the point

  • jolehp

    Jeff please do a review 🙂
    Can’t wait to be released 😀

  • Shay Shtern

    Really nice/..!!!
    But the Integration between the app switcher and control center is really important… and u don’t get it here.. ! Soooo.. keep that in mind Mr. developer ..!

    Hi,

    Does anyone know a tweak that disable the double home button press shortcut so I can go back to the home screen faster. I know Auxo 3 has an option to do it, but I don’t really want to install Auxo for one of its options. Thanks.

    • Jason Monahan

      Virtualhome8 will work for this.

      • Scotow

        Thanks I will try it out.

        Edit : After a try, Virtualhome8 seems to only take care about the touchID and not the home button itself.

      • sorrento

        I can’t deal without it… This is my main tweak and the settings I done with it are the best to my taste. It works like a charm 🙂
        Hope it can help…

      • Venkatesh Ramasamy

        Which font is this?

      • sorrento

        Salsa… Pretty cool 🙂

      • Venkatesh Ramasamy

        Wonderful. Thanks for sharing..

      • sorrento

        sure thing !

      • Scotow

        Thanks a lot, exactly what I was looking for.

  • Blip dude

    That’s it!?!? I really hope Ryan Petrich continues to update Auxo LE Post iOS 9 and beyond, as I really don’t think we’ll continue to see another Auxo update. Perhaps an iOS 8.3/8.4 compatibility update but that’s it. I really feel like this tweak is seeing its end of days. As far this tweak, ehh!!

  • This Lollipop inspired switched is awesome hope it supports iPad

  • Nick

    When is this supposed to come out? It looks great. And is it going to be free or cost money

  • Nick

    When does this come out?
