SwitcherCleaner helps clean up the multitasking Fast App Switcher [Jailbreak]

SwitcherCleaner in Cydia

SwitcherCleaner is new jailbreak mod in Cydia that changes the behavior of the multitasking Fast App Switcher to only show apps that are actually running in the background, and keeps the quit button visible at all times.

  • *Requires iOS 5 or higher
  • SwitcherCleaner contains two features of SwitcherMod for iOS5.
    • RemoveRecents: show only running apps
    • AlwaysAvailableQuit: show quit button anytime
  • No icons added to the homescreen
  • No options to configure

In addition, SwitcherCleaner helps save time for power-users with the AlwaysAvailableQuit function, removing the requirement to tap-and-hold an icon before you're able to kill the app.

It's a great tool for anyone who wants to keep their Fast App Switcher clean.
