    For iPhone and iPad.

    I probably don't care to replace ProSwitcher on my iPhone (Still running 3.1.2, no interest in iOS4 yet). But for iPad this looks promising.

    My biggest issue is I use ProSwitcher on my iPad because I like that it has the dock available under activation. In my dock I have a folder for all my apps, so I don't really need to leave an app to switch to a new app.

    BUT, I'm severely tempted :)

    Anyone try it yet?

    Well, I just tried it.

    It's very nice, but I'm not sure if it's what I want.

    If they enable the Dock to be visible when in multiflow, or if they put in a springboard card, I'll be happier.

    ...

    What i rally want is this app to be proswitcher just with multiple cards visible at one time. I like the dock visible and i like making proswitcher replace my home screen. I no longer have any icons on springboard it's all done with folders and infinidock

    Exactly, that's what I do myself.

    This is very slick, and I will be fully happy if they simply enable the dock when in Expose view (at least on the iPad.. the iPhone might not have enough screen real estate).

    Bought Multifl0w - went back to Proswitcher. Nice but too many crashes.

    Yep. I don't reboot that often so it's not much of an issue for me. Even with no open apps, Multifl0w crashing several different browsers. The end of the line was when I couldn't use Air Video, Stream to Me, or Cydia.

    I've been using it with no problems, yet. As stated above I wish they enable the dock while in exposé view.

    Also I have it activated by hold home screen so I wish they had a slide like circuitous to activate it by holding home for a shorter period.

    I installed this and love the app and the Expose. But unfortunately, I've experienced too many crashes with it for my liking and ultimately uninstalled it and went back to Circuituos which has been super stable for me. If a bugfix update comes out for Multifl0w I'd definitely hop back.

    I had the exact same experience. Installed it, loved it, had too many crashes and ultimately uninstalled it. What a shame.

    I am now using both ProSwitcher and Multifl0w, at least until Multifl0w gets a visible dock.

    Single tap of the home button brings up ProSwitcher, automatic backgrounding by default enabled.

    Hold the home button brings up Multifl0w, so if I have a lot of apps open it lets me close things/switch/see whats open very quickly.

    Best of both worlds. :)

    Hey,

    Good news guys, update! I found what was causing ~99% of the crashes. Everyone is reporting that it's way more stable, I'd recommend everyone updates in Cydia for a much more pleasant experience. :D

    I never had any crashing problems... but I did have problems with functionality.

    Enable the dock to be visible and clickable while in multifl0w (like proswitcher) and I'll be a happy camper.

    Other bug that needs be fixed, is various orientation bugs.
