  • 'LockToCell' Centers All App Switcher Icons With the Application Preview Cards

    One of the annoying parts of the iOS 7 App Switcher is the way that the application icons seem to just roll around and completely ignore the positions of the application preview cards that they're supposed to go with. On one hand, the way this is set up is to make seeing your application icons easier on the smaller screen, but on the other hand it also makes it a lot more confusing.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called LockToCell by iOS developer Brogan Miner forces the application icons to stay locked with the center of the application preview cards, as shown above.

    With the application icons centered with the application preview cards, it makes it much easier to process in your mind which application icon goes with which application preview card. This is purely an aesthetic change, and the tweak doesn't actually change the functionality of your App Switcher.

    If you want to give LockToCell a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak doesn't have any options to configure and requires an iOS 7 device to be installed.

      Once again, I find that the annoyance this iOS 7 design causes some people is overblown. I don't see why every time someone doesn't like a design they call it something like "extremely confusing."
