The multitasking feature found in iOS 4 is great to quickly switch between apps without having to actually close the app. However, Apple’s multitasking always seemed to lack that Apple finesse.
After recently jailbreaking my iPhone 4, I came across Multifl0w, an app that adds a great multitasking interface to iOS 4 (or iOS 3.2 and later on iPad).
Multifl0w works with the free ‘backgrounder’ app in Cydia and displays up to nine open apps at a time. When used, the interface is a lot like ExposÃ¨ on a Mac, where all of the open windows/apps are displayed in a grid for easy viewing.
In the case of Multifl0w, the app displays up to nine open app windows at a time in a 3×3 grid. The app display is also large enough that users can easily see what’s going on with an open app.
Compared with the current iOS 4 multitasking, all you see is app icons. Although, users can have Multifl0w replace Apple’s multitasking feature or run alongside it.
Overall, the app runs very quickly and smoothly with no visual lags. If you’re looking for a multitasking app with that extra finesse, check this out.
Multifl0w is available on the Cydia store for $4.99.
