    Is there a new way to have a themed background? The old way doesn't seem to work in the new version (1.0)

    My ideal switcher would by the cross between ProSwitcher and Overboard. I don't want to swipe so many times to get to the applicaitons, and I want to know right away what applications are active on ONE screen. If we can have up to 12 active applications on the screen, (and scroll down if more than 12 are active, just like in Overboard), that would be my dream.

    I don't need so many way to activate the switcher. Docked icon is not a good ideal because you can only activate it from springboard. Swiping of taskbar is not a good idea because you can't use it on full screen applications such as Sygic and Oceanus (full screen browser). Double clicking of home key would do just fine.

    Haven't found a way to get the background back, but I did find a way to get the "Swipe Down from statusbar" activation option back.
    Go into /Library/Activator/Events/libactivator.statusbar.swipe.down/ and copy Info.plist to your computer.
    Edit Info.plist, set "Hidden" to 0 and upload it back to your iPhone.
    Respring and the Swipe Down option is back.

    how about Kirikae?
    not as pretty but does what you want
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Yes, I'm using Kirikae at the moment. I prefer it over ProSwitcher because everything is on one screen. However,it would be best to have it Overboard style, where you can configure how many screen to appear on one screen. It will make my non-iPhone friend really jealous. :-)

    Which developer wants to take this project on? I don't have any issue seeing that as a paid application.

    I'm sure the dev will add a gallery view for ProSwitcher.

    I mean, look how many new features we got between 0.8-1.0.

    I think the cards need some shadow (like the ones notifications have), just to give them a polished look and add some depth perception.

    I really hope so. Let the user specify how many FULL screen to show on the single screen. That would make this the killer switcher application.

    Also, why not allow swiping up from the bottom of the screen to activate it too, like in QuickDo? In that way, I can reserve the double click purely for iPod (or for some of us things like Camera, favourites, etc). Currently I need to do a SECOND double click of home botton for iPod. Would be nice to borrow some good ideas from QuickDo here. The swipping up action in QuickDo works regardless of whether we're running a full screen application, so it it far better than swipping the taskbar, which interfere with SBSettings and ceases to work in full screen applications.

    Anyone experiencing any RAM load? I was running at 150MB free until I installed ProSwitcher, and now I seem to be around 80-90MB, even without any apps running in the background. I just uninstalled PS and am back up to 154MB, but really liked the program and would love to have it back if I can keep more free RAM available.

    On a side note, I was trying to look up any apps that tell me what's taking up my RAM usage, so I could troubleshoot, kinda like a taskmanager for the iPhone, but had no luck. I used Free Up Memory in SBSettings, but it would only get me up to about 110MB.

    Thanks!
