  • Cydia Gets LastApp

    Cydia is serving up a wicked cool new app that a lot of people are talking about. Dubbed "LastApp," the application enables users to conveniently and quickly switch between the last two apps running on your iPhone. Some have called the app an "Alt-Tab" for the iPhone.

    Best of all, LastApp supports "shaking." So, needless to say, one can toggle between two applications by shaking their iPhone. Overall, there are lots of really awesome attributes that LastApp can boast about, including slide gestures. Definitely worth checking out.

    If you've haven't noticed, it's a been a pretty solid week so far for Cydia, with a host of exciting new apps and, most recently, as essential update. As reported earlier today by my ModMyi colleague Nick Hesson, last night it appears that Saurik has updated APT, which now has an "optimized cache generator and has become more error tolerant in repository parsing."

    And just last weekend, as you may recall, Grooveshark - a popular online music streaming service - came to terms with the App Store's eternal resistance and finally released their much awaited app on Cydia to great fanfare.

    LastApp, along with the new APT updates and Grooveshark, is available now from Cydia.

      If the AppStore keeps on going like it is, Cydia is going to overtake it. Not in number, in quality.

      So this doesn't run programs simultaneously? It just closes one and opens the last one? Neat! I'm not sure what I would use it for, though.

      Someone report back whether this drains battery life or hogs RAM.

      way to go Cydia! Last update is indeed working as designed. Keep up the good work

      But the Cydia update is a great improvement. I don't have to wait until i dont need my iPhone for a long period before opening it to check for updates now. Not quite as fast as Installer @ 1.x but its better.
