CSwitcher tweak

To access the app switcher and jump from app to another, you have to double press the home button to launch the app switcher screen. If you have a device whose home button is not functioning properly or you simply don’t like the idea of pressing the home button then a new Cydia tweak called CSwitcher can help. This simple tweak brings the app switcher functionality to iOS’s Control Center enabling users to switch apps without pressing the home button. The hack replaces the quick launch icons on the Control Center.

CSwitcher offers several customization options as from settings you get the ability to choose between the simple icon mode shown in the first screenshot above and the app preview mode visible in the second one. Users can configure the tweak to show either 4 or 5 apps at onces as well as enable or disable paging. If paging is disabled then the icon will appear in a continuous flow.

While the app switcher becomes part of the Control Center, this tweak also replaces the traditional app switcher screen with Control Center. So when you double press the home button, instead of seeing the usual screen you will be greeted with the Control Center that will also house CSwticher icons.

CSwitcher is a nice tweak for those who don’t like to press the home button to get to the app switcher. If you like it then you can download it from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free.

    Yeah!… Shoot! Love that it adds it… but by making the double press call up CS it breaks my Slide2Kill tweak… Would like the dev to add a toggle to not have dbl click call CS
