SwitchSpring: New iOS 7 Jailbreak Tweak lets you kill all background apps, Restart SpringBoard with a swipe in app switcher


With the surprise release of evasi0n7 – the untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.4, we are expecting a flood of new and updated jailbreak tweaks.

SwitchSpring is one of the first iOS 7 jailbreak tweaks to hit Cydia.

The jailbreak tweak allows you to quickly kill all the apps running in the background from iOS 7’s app switcher.

After installing the jailbreak tweak, swiping up on the Home screen card gives you an option to either restart the SpringBoard, or kill all the apps running in the background.

Check out the video walkthrough of the jailbreak tweak in action below:

The idea behind the jailbreak tweak is quite cool as it makes smart use of iOS 7’s app switcher. SwitchSpring has been devloped by HashBang Production, developers of jailbreak tweaks such as TypeStatus, LiveWire, Animer etc.

SwitchSpring is available on Cydia for free. So download the tweak and let us know what you think in the comments below. I can’t wait to see more new jailbreak tweaks for iOS 7.
