Zephyr brings multitasking gestures to iPhone [Jailbreak]

Zephyr, by jailbreak phenom chpwn, brings iPad-style multitasking gestures to the iPhone.

From swiping up to show the multitasking switcher or quickly swiping to a different app, Zephyr is all you need to quickly and easily control multitasking.

Zephyr registers bezel-to-screen swipes, which makes sense given the smaller surface area of the 3.5-inch iPhone vs. 9.7 inch iPad display. While only the 2 gestures listed above are currently supported, anyone already familiar with their iPad counterparts will realize the efficiency boost they can provide.

If you're jailbroken, you can grab it now from Cydia for $2.99.

Zephyr brings multitasking gestures to iPhone [Jailbreak]


Oh, man, this is what made me stick with the Palm/HP Pre for so long! I'm glad I switched to the iPhone 4S, but please bring all the multitasking greatness of the Pre to the iPhone 4S soon (I'm really getting tired of the home button)! I'll be in gesture heaven once again!

Awesome concept, just needs to add some way to edit the zones which activate side swiping to switch apps, as it is now they start a lot farther than the bezel...
