Reyna Petrich released a new tweak today called SmartClose. Its a tweak which puts apps into a "deep freeze" state. It's pretty cool cause I'm in the camp that force closing apps is typically a useless action and can actually hurt battery life more than improve it. It can however improve lag. But that's a whole other debate that's been discussed ad nauseam. Ironically Ryan Petrich also thinks force quitting apps should not be the default approach to using your device. This is why I am intrigued by this new tweak. So far it seems to be working as expected. I've been using it for several hours now and I think I'm gonna keep this installed. When activated via an Activator gesture, the apps disappear from the task switcher. But sure enough, for the most part, when I reopen an app that's in this state, it picks up right where it left off. I kinda wish the app stayed in the task switcher but I'm sure over time this tweak will be expanded on given that Petrich is frequently updating his tweaks and adding features. Right now it's in beta so you'll have to add his repo if you don't already have it. I'll keep my eye on battery life and lag. If I experience anything unexpected I'll post it here. What do you guys think? Something you'll use or do you prefer a tweak like InfinityTask? Or no backgrounding type tweaks at all?
