    I've been experiencing crashes since Feb 4th, or whenever the jailbroke launched, and tried restoring, and still experienced crashes.

    Since then, I've been cursing evasi0n, but turns out it's (probably) Auxo causing the problems (crashing; icons scattering out of folders, etc).

    So, I'm wondering if there is an alternative multitask app like Auxo, that had the "swipe down to close app" type thing. That, or something very similar to how Android closes apps, is badass, and purely a must.


    (also, on a side-note, any word on a quasar update for iPad?)

    Nobody is talking about CardSwitcher anymore. I'm using 2.0-1 very successfully on my iPhone 5 and loving it. Bringing back memories of webOS on my old Palm pre.

    BTW, the dev for this app was iKy1e (@Freerunnering) who also collarborated on Auxo. Another 15 year old UK tech wiz' :p

    Switchy is a really good one.
    Swipe away is to kill apps running. Depending on how you set it, you can swipe up to delete all or down to just kill that one app running

    15 years old? Hah, I remember what I was doing at 15 and it wasn't making apps...

    also, cardswitcher looks very good. I'll try it, thanks!

    Here's a video for you to check out.

    Note: Unlike Auxo, which shows recent app's, CardSwitcher only shows app's that have a process. There are a few that drop out pretty quick. Cydia is one. I actually dig the fact that I only see running app's.

    Yeah, I'll probably use it after I get all my **** back into folders...Sometimes I really hate jailbreaking for these little bugs.

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I've been tweaking the heck out my iPhone and finally have it where I want it. No issues/bugs. Yet ;)

    Yeah, that does look pretty cool. It could potentially replace SBSettings and Auxo/multitask for me...if I could respring from that app. I hope it's free too; I don't have any money to spend on tweaks lol.

    I would be pretty surprised if it didn't have a respring toggle. But if not, you could always use activator to respring if that's the only toggle missing. But this thing already has a ton of toggles. Remember when Auxo first came out? It only had the basic toggles. I could be wrong but I'm not even sure if it still has as many toggles as this new tweak. A fantastic dev is creating this too. It's the same guy that made CallBar. And in my opinion CallBar is one of the best tweaks ever. Needless to say, I expect big things from this tweak in regards to stability and aesthetics.

    Sure, CallBar is nice and very smooth but CallBar is a relatively small tweak if you compare them.

    i use auxo, combined with tons of other tweaks, it is not auxo causing your crashes.

    Well Auxo is now implicated in lots of issues ranging from crashes to bluetooth pairing issues and spotify incompatibility. It maybe interaction with other tweaks but every time Auxo pops up and for now Auxo appears to be the problem. I hope the dev can fix it.

    Was loyal to multifl0w but the thing was never updated, Zephyr its legit and works great :)

    Wonder if Aero will ever be updated to io 6 ? Never got to try it and looks nice.

    From Aaron Ash on twitter:

    @raphear I don't think Multifl0w will be ready for iOS 6 any time soon, I do plan on working on it more soon though.

    CardSwitcher is great. Love that he is updating it for iOS 6. Very minor pet peeve..would love for him to change the animation upon switching apps. It's currently the default. Doesn't feel right.

    Also, as a side note, there's already a thread about this.

    I'm using Switchercleaner and find it's quite adequate for my needs.
