Multiplexer 2

Today, I got my first chance to try out Multiplexer, the highly anticipated upcoming multitasking tweak from Elijah Frederickson and Andrew Abosh, that’s currently setting the jailbreak community ablaze.

Multiplexer can rightly be labeled as an “ultimate multitasking tweak”, because it basically combines six multitasking-oriented jailbreak tweaks into one.

The tweak blends traditional side-by-side multitasking options along with enhanced backgrounding, and multiple desktops. But all of that is just the tip of the iceberg. Step inside as we give you the first hands-on look at Multiplexer on video.

Once you install Multiplexer, you’ll find a new preference panel in the stock Settings app. At the root of the Multiplexer preferences, you’ll find an overall kill switch along with a Theme panel.

The Theme panel allows you to choose between two different themes—Default and Dark—and where applicable, it affects all tweaks under the Multiplexer umbrella.

Speaking of tweaks, as mentioned, Multiplexer is a legit six tweaks in one. Each of the parts that make up Multiplexer contain a separate preference panel inside of Multiplexer’s preferences. They are as follows:

  • Aura – Lets apps run in the background
  • Empoleon – Windowed multitasking
  • Mission Control – Manage multiple desktops and their windows
  • Quick Access – Have an app in Notification Center
  • Reach App – Use and app in Reachability alongside another
  • Swipe Over – Access another app simply by swiping in from the right side of the screen

Needless to say, there’s a whole lot to this tweak—so much that it’s honestly a little overwhelming. With this in mind, I’m thinking about posting a new post each day to break down each part of the release.

In the meantime, enjoy our hands-on preview walkthrough of Multiplexer. It doesn’t go super in depth on any one aspect of the release, but it provides you with enough of a high level overview so that you know what to expect when it drops later this month for $3.99.

What do you think?

    It’s not fair that you get to try out tweaks early, Jeff. You make us want to look for it, but we have to wait..

    • Antzboogie

      Lol so true he could have left us the repo 😉 Thank you anyway Jeff I’m going to have to settle for Multify for now which is awesome as well.

  • Shaw

    Seems it does not depend on Activator. That’s awesome.

  • Freddy Born

    why didnt you try it on ipad (where its actually usefull)?

  • tunutsaigon

    Too complicated, I think… >.<

    • ravinigga

      Not really is small on iPhone that why iPad is better for multitasking windows

  • Nesly Lacroix

    What happened to iDownloadblog? No mobile browser version.

  • Ds

    looks pretty sweet. might be to much in 1 tweak but I’m excited to give it a try. I was hoping it would be on Ejliah and Andrews beta to try it out but they must have made a new one just for this.

  • Guy

    I want to do multi tasking on iOS in the simplest way I can. Reach App is the closest way to that. With that said this looks promising.

  • Seems way too complicated. Just make all those six options into their own separate tweak.

    • AngryDingo

      How is it complicated? Just use what you want and ignore the rest.

  • Shingo

    Will it lag for older device like ipad4? or minimum req is ipad air?

  • David Breitbarth

    Battery hog? Jeff’s level went from 16% to 11%

    • AngryDingo

      No way of knowing how it took to shoot the video. There were many edits in the video.

  • iPhoneWINS
