The stock App Switcher looks alright, but it’s not as useful as it could be. Apple limits what you can do inside the App Switcher to force-quitting apps, but as jailbreak developers have shown for years, there’s so much untapped potential.
A new free jailbreak tweak called EnhancedSwitcherClose by iOS developer DGh0st provides you with a new way to interact with your App Switcher cards and gives you more options depending on the way you swipe them.
Without a doubt, the App Switcher is one of the interfaces that gets used more than any other on an iOS device. It’s an access point for all of your recently-used apps, and whenever you desire to force-quit an application, you’ll end up in the App Switcher for that too.
Since you use it so much, why not empower yourself with the ability to customize it and make it look the way you want it to? You could always leave it stock, but when you have a jailbreak, you can stand out from the rest with a jailbreak tweak called 3DSwitcher 2.
Anyone who was a fan of Auxo probably remembers one of its biggest individual features, Hot Corners, which supercharged the experience of multitasking on iOS by empowering you with the ability to swipe up from a specific corner of your device to quickly switch between apps.
This feature is now being reborn in a new free jailbreak tweak called Kaze by Qusic and Sentry. This essentially takes that one feature from Auxo and packs it into a standalone tweak.
If you’ve ever wanted to make access to your favorite apps even easier, and improve the efficiency of multitasking between apps, then you’re going to love a new jailbreak tweak called App Center by Evan Swick and Conath.
This tweak integrates up to nine of your recently used apps into different pages in Control Center, allowing you to quickly swipe between them and interact with them within windowed views.
Many people leave their apps alone in the App Switcher until they start to have problems with them, and will use it to force quit those apps so they can be restarted again.
Even though iOS handles its very limited allocation of memory automatically, it’s not always as efficient at it as you’d like it to be. This can impact your device’s animations and performance, and it’s why iOS developer ichitaso released KillBackground10, a jailbreak tweak you can use to force quit all apps on iOS at once.
