[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!
