Although iOS 5 is pretty jam packed, for us avid jailbreak users, we still see the need to jailbreak our devices. The list could go on forever on the things that Apple has left out with iOS 5 and what the jailbreak community has to offer as an alternative. A recent article about Mail Enhancer (now compatible on iOS 5)
discussed the fact that there are still a ton of major hotspots that are in need of improvement from various jailbreak tweaks and applications. Alongside the mail client, as discussed with Mail Enhancer, another area that lacks a lot of useful functionality is multitasking. The AppSwitcher has been available since the release of iOS 4 and has been viewed on both the positive and negative side of the spectrum. Some of us think the AppSwitcher is perfect for our iOS experience while others find it useless and not appealing. For those of us who were looking for a multitasking alternative, Multifl0w was the most definite choice
. A staple iOS jailbreak application, Multifl0w changes up the multitasking experience and truly offers a method of application switching that stock iOS lacks.
Not only does Multifl0w offer an alternative application switching method but it does it in a professional, elegant, and clean way. It's comprehensive in terms of settings, features, and quality. Now that iOS 5 is public
, you're able to experience Multifl0w once again on the new 5.x. firmware.
The developer Aaron Ash (@aaronash)
recently updated Multifl0w to add iOS 5 support. This is exciting news for many of us (including myself) who put Multifl0w on our "must have list" for jailbreaking. The newest version of Multifl0w takes all the same functionality it had in previous firmwares and allows users on iOS 5 to experience it as well. Having toyed with a ton on iOS 5, it runs beautifully
and I can guarantee you will be very satisfied with its performance
Multifl0w is available publicly
on the BigBoss repository and is a free update
for all users who have purchased it previously. If you haven't bought it or given it a look yet, I urge you to take the plunge
. It is available in Cydia now for $4.99.
For those of you that may not know what Multifl0w is all about, here's an excellent demo video to show you all that Multifl0w has to offer:
