  • A New App Switcher Concept From the Designer of Auxo is Born - it Looks Great!


    The designer of Auxo (Sentry_NC) is at it again with yet another App Switcher concept. This new concept calls for the user to drag up from the bottom of the display, similarly to how users do already with Zephyr, to reveal a new card switcher-like interface that allows the user to switch between applications by simply dragging their finger sideways on the application icons at the bottom of the display.

    You can check out a video demonstration of the new App Switcher concept below:

    For a mobile friendly video link that works with our app, tap on the video link below:

    In the App Switcher, the background uses Appleís signature linen background, and the application icons slide up or back down depending on their focus under the userís finger as the user slides their finger right or left. As the icons move, so do the screenshots.

    The App Switcher concept uses screenshots of the applications running in the background to help the user identify what the applications are similarly to how Auxo displays the screenshots of the applications that are suspended in the background. At the same time, labels for the applications appear above the screenshots.

    When the user lifts their finger up from the display after dragging their finger left or right to switch between applications, the application that the user lands on is the application that the iOS device opens.

    The App Switcher concept definitely has a nice implantation and everything looks like eye candy as usual, but the most important part here is that it appears to keep everything super simple and this means using less of the userís time to perform tasks.

    Would you like to have this App Switching method be a part of your iOS device in the future?

      Edit just crashed on me when I was listening to music. Something with Auxo and music app are not getting along.
      Do you have Music Controls Pro 6.0+? I think that might be some kind of compatibility issue cause it causes me to hard reboot due to freeze. 2 times in a row just now.

      Just duplicate WebOS multitasking, PLEASE!

      I want to be able to go back to the home screen using only my thumb without putting any wear on the physical button.

      We included a link that works with our application as a workaround. You will find it in the article.

      Nope just normal music app. Seems like there is a media fix with the latest update. Guess my emails work.

      Cool. I'd send my info but am too lazy to write out all of the logs and what not.

      EDIT. I downloaded the recent beta update and it is much smoother and cleaner. No crashes so far. Looking like the next official update will be really nice.

      EDIT 2. I've noticed that it occasionally sends me into Siri now but that is much less of a bother than a completely Safe Mode crash or hard reboot crash. So I'm happy.
