iOS Quick-App-Switching Concept [Video]

iOS Quick-App-Switching Concept [Video]

Posted February 17, 2013 at 11:40pm by iClarified
Sentry, the designer behind the popular Auxo tweak, has posted a new concept for iOS quick-app-switching.

This is a short animation mockup of an experimental app switching mechanism I was pondering the other day.

The concept is to allow for instantaneous app switching, via a simple swipe up from the bottom (splitting the screen). Without lifting your finger/thumb, you swipe to one of your (5-6) recently used apps, release, and jump into it in one swoop.

Take a look below...

Looks more like a re-tweaked version of zephyr and auxo

I Love it! Would be so easy to use with the thumb too! Please apple implement, I don't like the way it is now, it's so hard to reach with your thumb you have to bend it down too far making the phone hard to hold in one hand. This would solve it. Love it!

I hate iOS multi-tasking. I miss backgrounder (. .)

In that multitasking where all those icons were to enable/disable (ie 3G or Bluetooth), that is a tweak from cydia. It looks exactly the same as the multitasking tweak called Auxxo. It's not the same way of multitasking, it's just a tweak keeping similarity to the regular multitasking.

Read the text and you'll find out that the tweak in the video is a concept done by the SAME designer of the Auxo tweak.

Not saying it is a bad concept, but I personally do not care for it.

I should elaborate further to as why I do not like it. The task switcher at the bottom of the screen allows for seamless app switching with your thumb while holding the iPhone with one hand. This would make it so you would need your other hand to interact with the device to reach up the screen.

This looks awesome!
marco - February 18, 2013 at 1:58am

I purchased Auxo at cydia and I like it a lot. You need to make this one happen pimpin this looks badass.
Aly - February 18, 2013 at 6:13am

Aly - February 18, 2013 at 6:14am
