Auxo version 1.2-1 has been released today and brings several new features to the already feature-rich App Switcher. One of the new features is the addition of some brand new toggles for the toggle interface in Auxo:
The new toggles included with the update are Location Services, Flashlight, Vibration, and VPN. Also, not really a toggle, a Respring button has been added as a choice for the toggle interface. You can slide toggles in and out of the Auxo toggle interface and rearrange them similarly to how to slide apps and widgets in and out of Notification Center. Because of the additional toggles, Auxo makes three rows available instead of two to make room for any additional toggles you may want to enable.
Also new in the update, if you donít use the music controls in the App Switcher that often, but you use the toggles page in the App Switcher a lot, you can now enable a new option that makes the toggle page the first page to the left of the App Switcher when you swipe left rather than the music controls:
Another important new feature in Auxo 1.2-1 is the VIP applications option. The VIP applications option allows you to select applications that wonít be closed from the App Switcher when you close all applications running in the background. There is a preferences pane in Auxoís settings where you can select your VIP applications:
Last but not least, one of the final major additions to Auxo is the Activator integration. If you have Activator installed, you will now find two new options that you can set Activator actions to:
With these new options, you can quickly get to the Auxo music controls or Auxo toggle page using an Activator action of your choice. If you donít use Activator, donít worry! Auxo wonít force you install Activator as a dependency. You can still get to the music controls and toggle page simply by swiping left when you open the App Switcher.
Auxo continues to impress us with todayís update. If you are an existing owner of Auxo, the update is free to you. If you have not yet purchased Auxo, you can grab it for only $1.99 in the BigBoss repository today. Auxo supports the iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 6+, however iPad support is coming in the future.
