Access the App Switcher on your device from the Notification Center.
If you remember from a few days ago, the first tweak ever made for the Notification Center, UISettings
, was distributed to the public as a pre-release beta as it is bound to release very soon on the BigBoss repo. The developer of UISettings, qwertyoruiop (@qwertyoruiop)
, hasn't stopped here with his work. Recently released on Cydia, qwertyoruiop's new tweak WidgetTask allows the user to access the AppSwitcher switcher directly from the Notification Center.
When you have it installed and enabled (Settings -> Notifications -> WidgetTask)
, simply pull down your Notification Center to see it in action. WidgetTask behaves just like the regular App Switcher, allowing you to "kill" applications as well as access the music control section and volume. To rephrase
, WidgetTask directly ports all the functionality of the regular App Switcher right into your Notification Center.
So it is a toss up. Either you live with the regular App Switcher, or you use WidgetTask instead to access it on the Notification Center. In my mind, it is personal preference. You can access both the App Switcher and the Notification Center from anywhere so there's no real difference there. And if you compare the two, the only difference is that you have to pay for WidgetTask. It's totally up to you.
WidgetTask just released, as mentioned, and is available on Cydia for $.99. It is available on all devices running 5.0+.
