Kaze brings Auxo’s popular alternative app switching mode to a standalone tweak

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.

Review: Auxo 3 for iOS 9

Auxo 3 for iOS 9 is, as we stated in our previous release post, is a brand new jailbreak package for iOS 9. Although the tweak shares a lot of similarities with the previous version of Auxo 3 for iOS 8, this package has been rebuilt completely from the ground up with iOS 9 in mind.

A lot of people are ragging on A3tweaks for charging an upgrade price for the iOS 9 release, and while I can understand that frustration, you also have to try to see it from the shoes of the developer behind the project. This wasn’t a matter of changing a few lines of code and shipping an update in an effort to nickel and dime customers. No, considerable effort had to be exerted to make Auxo 3 for iOS 9 work, hence the delay in providing an update.

Granted, that may not be enough solace for previous Auxo 3 customers, especially when you consider that one of the tweak’s pillar features is unstable and buggy. Watch our video review inside for more details.

Auxo 3 released for iOS 9

Auxo 3 has been released for iOS 9 as a brand new package. The popular multitasking tweak has been rewritten for iOS 9, and as such, A3tweaks has pushed it as a separate package and not a direct upgrade from the previous version of Auxo 3.

The good news is that upgrade pricing applies, so if you purchased previous versions of Auxo, you get a discount. Previous Auxo 3 users get Auxo 3 for iOS 9 for only $0.99. If you purchased Auxo 2 in the past, then Auxo 3 for iOS 9 is $1.99 instead of $2.99.

Auxo Legacy Edition gains support for iOS 9

Good news for those of you who are fans of Auxo—Auxo Legacy Edition, the jailbreak tweak created via a collaboration of Ryan Petrich and Sentry, has been updated for iOS 9. As you might remember, Auxo LE was a release that was built in the image of the original version of Auxo, which was a legendary jailbreak tweak that brought a new multitasking interface to iOS.

No new features can be expected with this latest update, but if you’re running an iOS 9 jailbreak, you’ll be happy to hear that Auxo LE should play nice with your jailbroken iPhone.

Auxo Legacy Edition: nothing beats an original

The wait is over; Auxo Legacy Edition has just touched down on Cydia. For those of you that purchased Auxo 2 or Auxo 3, Auxo Legacy Edition will cost $0.99. Everyone else is asked to pay $1.99 to join in on the fun.

And fun it is.

While I liked the sequels to the original Auxo, neither of them felt as cool to me as the original version—a tweak that arguably laid the groundwork for the modern App Switcher that we enjoy today on iOS. Auxo Legacy Edition, Auxo LE hereafter, brings the well-liked card preview interface back to iOS 8 with a modern look and new features.

Auxo Legacy Edition teased again, coming next month

With the recent release of the Auxo-inspired jailbreak tweak, Stratos, perhaps we can chalk this one up to impeccable timing? Indeed, Auxo Legacy Edition, a much anticipated revival of the original Auxo for modern firmware and devices, was teased by the official A3tweaks account this morning, and it looks good.

Auxo 3 review: a legendary tweak inches closer to perfection

After much anticipation, I finally have my hands on Auxo 3—exactly two years to the day of the original Auxo release date. This is a jailbreak tweak a long time in the making. It’s the second sequel to one of the most well-known and impactful jailbreak tweaks in the community’s storied history, and it doesn’t disappoint.

If I could put it into a nutshell, I’d say that Auxo 3 is a much-refined version Auxo 2. Lead designer, Sentry, and developer, Qusic, refrain from deviating drastically from the things that made Auxo 2 such a compelling update, but the pair does bring quite a few new interesting features and refinements to the table. This ultimately proves to be a very good thing.

Sentry teases Apex 2, the tweak that lets you group apps together

Sentry, the designer behind Auxo 2 and a bevy of other jailbreak releases, has teased a sequel to another one of his popular tweaks. Apex—the jailbreak tweak that allowed users to group app icons and reveal them using swipe gestures—has received the iOS 7 treatment, and it comes in the form of Apex 2.

If you’re someone who likes to avoid using folders, then Apex is a jailbreak tweak that should pique your interest. The idea behind the tweak was good, but it was the implementation, with its smooth animations, that made Apex stand out.

Needless to say, it’s good to see Apex running on iOS 7, as it evokes fond memories. Check out the full review of the original version, and a sneak peak at the new iOS 7 update.

Auxo 2 is now available in Cydia

The long-awaited update to the hugely popular Auxo has just been released in Cydia. Designed by Sentry and developed by Qusic, Auxo 2 is poised to become one of these tweaks that will go down in history.

But don’t just take our word for it. Go get it in Cydia now. It’s available for $1.99 for those of you who owned the previous version. If you’re new to Auxo, it will cost you $3.99…

Auxo 2 review: one of the best jailbreak tweaks ever gets better

Auxo is dead.

Perhaps that’s what some of you thought last June, when you first saw Apple unveil iOS 7 at its 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference. You weren’t alone. Even Sentry, the tweak’s prolific designer, sat with a temporary moment of dejection as he watched Apple unveil its newest stride in mobile computing.

Less than a year later, Sentry is back, and he’s brought along QusicS, a skilled developer who’s helped him express a brand new take on a legendary tweak. Whereas the original version of Auxo gained popularity from its full app previews, Auxo 2 is much more of an evolutionary take on iOS 7’s App Switcher as a whole.

Ultimately, this has proved to be a wise decision, because Apple’s version of the App Switcher is nowhere near the limited mess that it was on firmwares below iOS 7. Auxo 2 is a serious refinement and feature-filled update, and I believe you’ll find that it significantly improves the process of switching apps.

We’ve been testing Auxo 2 since Saturday. Does it live up to the hype? Check out our full review and video walkthrough for the answer.

Auxo 2 jailbreak tweak coming to Cydia April 2nd

Good news jailbreakers. The dev group A3 tweaks announced earlier today that Auxo 2, the highly anticipated sequel to their original jailbreak tweak, is nearing completion and should be ready for release sometime this week.
We first saw evidence of Auxo 2 at the beginning of the month, when the group’s UI designer Sentry posted a pair of 6-second video clips teasing some of the tweak’s features. And today, a much longer trailer has been posted…
