Apple’s iOS app switcher has been around since iOS 4 and hasn’t really changed much. It does everything that it’s meant to; however leaves much to be desired from its simple form.
@Sentry_NC, an interface designer, and two app developers teamed to bring Auxo – a brand new take on the iOS app switcher.
Auxo utilizes intuitive touch gestures to display and control multitasking apps among other unique features. For example, double tapping the Home button displays a preview of the specific apps and swiping down on an app closes it. Swiping left reveals a brand new music control function that allows a preview of the cover art and volume/music controls. Auxo also has controls for adjusting brightness and turning Wi-Fi on and off.
Auxo is currently available on Cydia; however it’s important to note that it is currently only compatible with iOS 6 and only for the iPhone and iPod Touch. iPad support may be coming later. If you’re still on iOS 5, an updated is expected to be released next week along with support for older devices.
Jailbreak is currently available for A4 devices running iOS 6, on a tethered Redsn0w jailbreak, so it appears like many of us will be waiting a while longer.
If you’re one of the lucky folks with a compatible phone, you could grab Auxo right now for $1.99 from the BigBoss repo on Cydia.
