ControlTask iOS 7 Jailbreak Tweak adds an App Switcher to Control Center

ControlTask is a new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak by its_not_herpes that adds an iOS 6 style app switcher to the bottom of the Control Center, beside the inbuilt app shortcuts like Calculator, Clock etc.

The tweak shows you a list of apps opened recently or ones that are running in the background. You can tap on any icon to open the respective app, or swipe left on the original control center toggles to kill all running apps in the background.

Here’s a video demo of ControlTask:

Purge is a similar jailbreak tweak that lets you kill all apps when you tap and hold on any app card in the app switcher, and SwitchSpring lets you do the same thing by swiping up on the home screen card in the app switcher.

ControlTask will be available on the BigBoss repo by tomorrow for free. Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

      Install bootstrap from Repo:
      and “reboot” your device. It will be there.

      • Abu Taleb

        i cant see anything either, installed bootstrap but still no change :(

          Boots tar is dangerous. You only have to reinstall mobile substrate. Do not use unofficial mods to make it work. Some tweaks do work but some can mess up bad. Play safe until they release the mobile substrate update. Until then 64 bit devices have to wait

    Im waiting for a Tweak that can alter the Main Control Panel so i can get rid of the Bluetooth button that is useless for most people, and the other ones.
    SBSettings is missed, now its time to have it on the Control Panel.
    Waiting for it

    • Ershad

      64bit devices have to wait for an update for their mobile substrate. No eta.

      • Abu Taleb

        how long?

  • Victor

    If you are having issues with nothing appearing on the Settings, just go to Cydia, change from “User” to “Developer”, search for Mobile Substrate, reinstall it, then search for Preference Loader and reinstall it. The tweaks should appear :)

    • TwicetheSn0w

      Actually No you can just install BootStrap.

      • Victor

        I did it and not worked for me…

    • Abu Taleb

    the tweak is ok, but it would be much easy if you just swipe to the right where the original toghkes are to acces the original switcher.
