Seng 1.2 beta released for jailbroken iOS devices

By , Dec 14, 2015

Seng app switcher

Seng, the popular App Switcher and Control Center replacement created by developer Charlie Hewitt, is now available as a beta download for iOS 9. The beta is only available for users who have purchased the previous version of Seng, so that will unfortunately leave a lot of you out during the beta period.

If you did purchase the previous version of Seng, however, it’s just a matter of adding Charlie’s beta repo to your list of Cydia sources to begin using the tweak on iOS 9.

Seng is, for all intents and purposes, an Auxo alternative. Give the backlash that the recent release of Auxo 3 for iOS 9 has endured, it seems that Hewitt is striking while the iron is hot.

In my hands on with Seng for iOS 8.4, I enjoyed what the tweak had to offer. It is very much an Auxo clone, but it’s a good one. If you’re not feeling the recent Auxo 3 update, then you should check out Seng. In my opinion, it’s more like Auxo 3 for iOS 8 than the most recent Auxo update for iOS 9.

That’s not to say that Auxo 3 for iOS 9 is bad, it’s just a noticeable departure with the way the Multi-Center is now implemented on that tweak. Auxo’s developer had to make a judgement call as to how to work with iOS 9’s new App Switcher, which means that some will enjoy it and some won’t.

If you previously purchased Seng, simply add Hewitt’s beta repo to your list of Cydia sources. His repo is as follows:¬†http://chewitt.me/repo

    Works perfectly, personally it’s still my favourite out of all the App Switcher tweaks.

    “Auxo Alternative”. Ripoff more like. Though it’s added a couple options to differentiate it since its inception.

    • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

      Ironically, it works 10 times better than Auxo.

      • Danuel Carr

        Maybe the new one. It works about as well as Auxo 2/3, though I could never find an arrangement of sections that was as convenient as Auxo’s design.

      • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

        I was talking about Auxo 3 for iOS 9.
        The original Auxo 3 and 2 work just as good as seng.
        And the circular buttons for volume/brightness is what made Auxo’s arangement better than seng’s. Too bad they got rid of it.

      Thanks for the heads up!

  • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

    YES! Finally a worthwile reason to upgrade to iOS 9 (besides ForceTouch of course).

    • Digitalfeind

      Only you’ll have to wait for iOS 9.2 to be jail broken.

      • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

        Naturally. I expect a jailbreak in January.

  • Not bad but I’ll stick with what is working great and that is Tage.

    • $@//

      Where did you get Tage from?

      • James Bond

        It’s on bigboss and developers beta repo as well.

      • $@//

        Thanks for the reply. I know it comes up but unable to install it?

  • Marc Wium

    God, I miss grid switcher

    • iPhoneWINS

      thats all i want

  • James Bond

    Rows of beta will fallow. I love using seng beta. It’s like my Aston!

  • Diego

    Amazing, deleted Tage and now using Seng.
    Much better and fluid than Auxo, Lylac, Tage, and others.

  • It is very much an Auxo clone

    It is very much what Auxo should have been instead of placing the control center into a small app card. FTFY!

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Straight puts Auxo3 iOS 9 to shame.

  • Gabriel Diaz

    To think I almost gave in and got auxo
