ProSwitcher Update

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

CydiaIt seems as soon as I wrote about ProSwitcher, the next day an update was released. Here are some of the features of the new release. Show Icon toggle (allows for activation from springboard icon); Empty Tap to Close toggle; Show Default Apps toggle (hide apps like phone and mail); Empty Style options of Text, Blank or Disabled.

It also feels a little snappier but I have some many hack running I’m never sure what’s causing slow downs. Let me know if those of you having lag issues see improvement.

ProSwitcher – Palm Pre-styled Application Switcher

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

cydiaBackgrounder is a really great hack for the iPhone. It lets you keep an application running in the background even when you hit the home button to close it. This is great for apps like Pandora and other music apps or anything else you might want. The annoying part for me has always been moving around between those apps. Usually I just use the search to find them because I have so many pages of apps I don’t want to scroll around looking for them. One newer feature of backgrounder displays a badge on the icon of the apps running in the background so you know what’s still running. Now with all of that said, a new app helps streamline all of this called ProSwitcher.

This app has a ton of customization that I could talk about all day but I’ll tell you the main point and you can mess with settings. Basically what it does is when you activate it from one of it’s many ways, it zooms out of the app, kinda like the way multiple webpages display in Mobile Safari, and you can flick left and right through what’s running. It also triggers the app you’re currently in to run in the back ground. Here’s some screenshots and a quick video demo. The apps free so check it out and if there’s something you don’t like, make sure you check all the features and options ’cause a lot of it can be changed.
