Direct Closer – Quickly Close Multitasking Apps

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Direct Closer Direct Closer is a simple little hack that, when you double-tap the Home Button to get to the multitasking apps, it automatically puts them into “wiggle” mode so they can be removed. Normally, you would have to double-tap the Home Button and then tap and hold an icon in the multitasking dock in order to get the apps into “wiggle” mode so that they can be removed. This app just makes this process a little faster by automatically putting them in “wiggle” mode. However, in order to switch to another app (using the multitasking dock), you have to tap the Home Button once to turn off the “wiggle” mode and then tap the app you would like to switch too. So, depending on how you use your multitasking dock… this app might not be for you. Check out the screenshots below. You can get Direct Closer via the BigBoss source.

Note: This application does not add an icon to your SpringBoard or have any settings. Once you install the app in Cydia, it automatically enables the hack. To “turn off” the hack you will need to uninstall it in Cydia.

  1. I was expecting that a red close button would show up but the icons would NOT be in wiggle mode. I thought it would be similar to the wiggle free tweak in Cydia,

    The current design is not useful for me. I removed it.

  2. is it just me, or is anyone else not able to find some of these apps in Cydia?

  3. Didn’t know I could shut. Them down thanks for tip but I don’t think I would use this the it can be done is good enough it can’t be bettered
