  • iOS Tweak Brings WebOS-like Multitasking to iDevices
    Youtube Video

    WebOS's demise was ugly, quick, and unforgiving. For an operating system as promising as WebOS, it deserved better. But, there is light at the end of the tunnel for those who loved the little things that made WebOS special, like its "Card" based app switching. That light is the iOS jailbreak community.

    CardSwitcher is a $1.99 tweak that does exactly what it's name implies: brings WebOS's card-switching multi-tasking metaphor over to iOS. The implementation appears smooth, but some users have reported some Safe Mode crashes while using CardSwitcher. Like other tweaks CardSwitcher will not create another program running on your iDevice's springboard, and there are some customizable options like swipe to close, show close buttons and a lot more via the Settings app. Also, activator in the Settings app can be used to customize starting CardSwitcher using custom actions.

    This a must have for the few WebOS refugees out there, and for the rest of us it provides a capable and considered by some, a vastly superior multitasking solution compared to iOS's current offering. Currently CardSwitcher is only available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but an iPad version is expected to come in the next few days.

      For clarity's sake, the statement that webOS met its demise really should be removed. It is continuing to receive support (and updates) from HP and it has already been announced that they are looking to use webos on other platforms (such as car audiovisual equipment and the like).

      This guys got some serious balls! First he rips off the ProSwitcher open source, ports it for the latest firmware and then sells it as CardSwitcher for $2 taking the money and credit for rpetrich and chpwn's work, and NOW he decideds hes gonna fix it by releasing "LameSwitcher" which is the exact same thing for free but HE KEPT CardSwitcher in Cydia as paid nand didnt provide an adequate description of a single screenshot for "LameSwitcher". What an a**hole!

      I'm pretty sure rpetrch put it as LameSwitcher, to imply that it was lame...just to laugh at him. It's open source now..
