Simplexity: A Simple Yet Complex Method for Viewing the App Switcher

Looking for yet another alternative to the stock App Switcher? I know, there’s no shortage of alternate app switchers, but there’s always room for one more, right?

Well, on second thought, maybe not. Simplexity is a recently released jailbreak tweak on Cydia that wholeheartedly lives up to its name. While it’s simple in some aspects, it can make what should otherwise be a no-brainer function overly complex…


Simplexity uses SwitcherLoader plugins along with a settings panel full of customization options to carve out its spot among App Switcher alternatives.

There’s tons of customization, from table UI elements, to backgrounds, to text colors, it’s all here.

In fact, the customization options are almost too much for the average person.

It’s not that it’s hard to setup or use, it’s just that it makes what is normally a simple affair (app switching) complex and well, dull. Couple that with a $2.99 price point, and it’s evident that the tweak isn’t for me.

What about you?
