When you open up the iPhone’s app switcher, the status bar fades from view. This means that you can’t view vital statistics like the time, signal strength, and battery life while the app switcher is open.

Now obviously, most people aren’t going to keep their status bars open long enough for this to have a negative impact on the experience, but in some cases, it may be desirable to have access to the status bar while the app switcher is open.

That’s where the clumsily named App Switcher Status Bar comes into play. It places the status bar directly in the app switcher, so that you can always see the iPhone’s vital statistics, even when switching apps.

Once installed, invoke the app switcher, and you will see the status bar residing above the apps in the switcher.

App Switcher Status Bar doesn’t do anything groundbreaking, but for those of you who hate the fact that the status bar disappears when opening the app switcher, then this could be the solution for you.

You can find App Switcher Status Bar on Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $0.99. What do you think? Is it worth it to you?
