One of the iPhone’s shortfalls compared to others out there is the inability to run 3rd party apps in the background. Now, this is possible if your iPhone is jailbroken, since you can bypass this by installing Backgrounder. This will enable you to run any app in the background, such as streaming radio, while you do something else.
But what about when you have multiple apps running the background? How to keep track? Easy! There is an upcoming solution to Cydia and it’s called Multifl0w (don’t ask me how they come up with these names). This app will allow you to easily swipe back and forth among apps running in the background. Check out the following demo video:
Multifl0w is dubbed as “the future of iPhone multitasking” by its creator. From the video above, it does look very promising. We’ll have to wait until it’s released to see how smooth it really is.
