Hands-On With Apple's Jailbreak-Inspired iOS 7 App Switcher
Besides its all-new look, Control Center, revamped Siri, and more, Apple's recently announced iOS 7 also includes an impressive app switcher. In the below video, we go hands-on with the iOS 7 app switcher in a dedicated video preview, and put Apple's new mode of multitasking to the test. As you can see, the app switcher in iOS 7 allows users to view screenshots of applications, to swipe between "open" app screens, and to "close" an application by swiping up. While Music app controls aren't permanently visible, users can of course reveal the controls from anywhere within the iOS by activating Control Center. Here's the video, see what you think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AgA2XswcFQ
