Auxo – the awesome replacement for the iOS app switcher, which we had previewed few days back is now available on Cydia.
Auxo replaces the app icons in the app switcher with a card-like screenshot of the current state of the app. The card-like screenshot makes it easier to identify the app you want to launch from the app switcher.
You can remove apps from the app switcher by swiping down on the app rather than going through the tedious process of pressing and holding the Home button etc. You can also kill multiple apps by using multiple fingers (though it is debatable if killing apps is a good idea). We liked the feature where the jailbreak tweak prompts you if you really want to close the music app when the music is playing in the background.
The jailbreak tweak allows you to access some of the frequently used toggles such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc.
Auxo also redesigns the music controls that are available when you swipe from left to right, with album artwork etc and gives you quick access to the volume controls. Check out the video walkthrough of the jailbreak tweak below:
Auxo is available on Cydia for $1.99. Auxo is currently compatible with iOS 6, but the developers are planning to release an update to add support iOS 5.x.x sometime next week. They also plan to release Auxo for iPad shortly.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of an iOS 6 jailbreak for devices such as iPhone 5 (would look even better on it), iPhone 4S, iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPod touch 5G, only users of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G will be able to install the tweak on their jailbroken iOS device.
As always, let us know what you think of the jailbreak tweak in the comments.
