  • [Review] AlwaysClose - Never Use Jiggle Mode to Close Apps Again


    Closing out of applications using Apple’s multitasking App Switcher is an easy, two-step process. You simply put the device into jiggle mode and then tap on the '-' buttons to close the applications from the background. If having a two-step process seems cumbersome to you, then a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed AlwaysClose by iOS developer ihkltc will let you have the option to close applications automatically without having to put the device in jiggle mode.

    How does it do this you ask? – Well it’s simple. Instead of having to place your applications in jiggle mode to show the '-' button when you launch the multitasking App Switcher, you can simply launch the multitasking App Switcher and the applications will already be showing the '-' buttons without you ever having to take a moment to hold down on the applications.

    The tweak is very nice if you want to over-step Apple’s two-step design process, howver they do that for a reason – so you don’t make mistakes. That’s one thing to consider when installing this tweak is that when you open the multitasking App Switcher, it will be really easy to accidentally close an application when you may have meant to launch the application instead, or vice versa.

    For a free tweak attempting to improve upon Apple's multitasking process and doing exactly what it claims to do without any noticeable bugs, I can recommend this tweak to anyone willing to try it. There are no options to configure from the Settings application – just install it and start using it!

Lol, doesn't matter to the iPhone of it was 0.1mb, it would have done its job to clear clutter.
      Maybe you don't use your iDevice intensively enough apps start crashing when ram gets that low, I guess in an odd way you could say the iOS is doing its job by crashing apps cleaning up ram when it gets low enough, but why let the app you want to use crash when you can clean up the memory from apps you aren't using in a mere second?

      Oh trust me, I use the crap out of my 4. The only app that crashes on me is Facebook. And it's not because of RAM issues. For some reason it doesn't like running on the 2nd instance of it being opened. Always has to be every other.

      If you are happy with tabs in safari refreshing regularly, then by all means just let IOS do its thing. It doesn't discriminate, that's the problem. If you just follow iOS sure, it will close certain things out, but ONLY When the memory is at the breaking point. And like I said, when it closes it doesn't matter if you prefer to not refresh the safari tab you were just on, or would rather keep an important document app open than to have it be on the Russian roulette of ios memory management.

      Using these methods ensures that apps that shouldn't be using memory are closed, leaving that extra ram for that game or document app, or your tabs in safari. Without using these, my safari tabs would endlessly get dumped from memory causing me to start from scratch. Now that happens a fraction of the time.

      On top of all of that, I'm thrilled that the stupid multitasking tray isn't overloaded with the dregs of my history.

      Some people have older IOS devices with lower gig, like I use to. Such as iPhone 3G an lower, those devices would lag terribly and the IOS stock multitasking app closer or whatever lagged, or wouldn't work as well as a chia tweak. I still use cydia tweaks like this app closer on my iPhone 4.
