Review: Switchy

There are many tweaks in Cydia that allow you to get the most out of your AppSwitcher but perhaps none like Switchy. Switchy is a new tweak that enhances the use of your AppSwitcher. It adds an extra row of open applications, making a total of eight icons displayed together. The new Music Switcher hosts the Music App shortcut, the play/pause and forward/backward button, with a volume slider and the AirPlay button. It also displays the name of the artist and song playing in the middle empty space. A third page is also added with three features namely, a settings app shortcut, a brightness slider and a clear all apps tap button.

 

The tweak is made so nice that it does not conflict with Zephyr or other AppSwticher tweaks (I have not tried all of them).

If you are interested in Switchy you can go ahead and purchase it for $1 from Cydia under the BigBoss repo.

CmdTab

CmdTab is a new jailbreak tweak by coffeejay which incarnates the Mac OS app switcher into the iOS. It is a fairly good tweak because of it’s simple inspired UI, but it would look better if it were a little more dark.

You can launch Settings, Music, Twitter, Messages, WiFi, Cydia and System options from CmdTab.

You will also notice that the logos of these icons are the same ones as on a Macintosh.
