Back in iOS 4, Apple launched “multitasking” on the iPhone. Thanks to the addition of a multitasking tray, iDevice owners could switch between frozen iPhone apps quickly and easily. However, not all folks are content with this mode of multitasking. In fact, a number of jailbreakers over the years have attempted to improve the multitasking “fast app switcher.”
A new, upcoming jailbreak tweak that can change the app switcher for the better is “Dash.” Once downloaded and installed, this jailbreak tweak adds a well designed app switcher to jailbroken iDevices. Using this app switcher interface, jailbreakers can switch between frozen iPhone apps on their handset via a number of animations, including Scroll, CoverFlow and TimeMachine.
Dash can be invoked through an Activator action, such as a double press of the Home button, for example. After it has been enabled, users can then navigate to the frozen app of their choice.
Though the upcoming jailbreak tweak is currently in beta, as you can see in the below video, it works well. Currently, its developer is still working out a few bugs and adding performance improvements to Dash. Hopefully, we should see the jailbreak tweak launch in the coming weeks.
