    Default Circuitous : Your New Favorite App Switcher


    Although I had mentioned this app in our Weekly App Update, I felt it deserved a little more attention and a breakdown of what it does. We've seen a few multi-tasking management apps such as Pro Switcher and MultiFl0w, and now up to the plate is Circuitous. Circuitous is an custom app switcher that shows currently open applications in a handy dock on the right side of the iPhone or iPod screen where you can launch or terminate apps.

    Of course, like the current Multitasking apps, this one will also allow you to switch between them. Using the Activator methods as usual, you can set up "previous" and "next" controls for the app switching.

    I particularly like the Dock feature for current apps open. Just seems very "appleish" to me. The whole app is very smooth and clean. A+ in my books.

    With a recent update since our last post, brings a few additional features.


    New in v.1.1:
    New Features: Tap and hold icon to reorder, or slide out until the icon dims to quit that app, shows free memory on the bottom of the dock, double tap dock to free up more memory, options for badges, icon labels, app animation, left and right handed, become homescreen, the x on the icons, and ability to launch from lockscreen. Also moved down the dock to more in the middle.
    • Badges On Icons
    • More Options in Settings
    • Tap and hold an icon to reorder apps
    • Tap and hold an icon and then slide out until the icon dims to quit the app
    • When dock is up slide to left or right on the screen to cycle through open apps
    • Tap and hold outside of dock when initiated until the top apps icon pops up, then drag the icon to the dock to background that app


    After installing, load the settings app and configure your preferred dock activation method.

    Best of all, this app is FREE. You can download it with Rock or Cydia.

    Why these over Kirikae?

    Wow, what a piece of junk. Installed this and when I try to select the cycler action, it crashes every time.

    Don't bother. ProSwitcher is so much better.

    Backgrounder by itself is great. Pro Switcher is a RAM and performance HOG! I uninstalled PS and it was like a new phone.

    This app looks promising - but if it is worse than PS then it is not worth my time.

    Backgrounder is enough for me.

    awesomeness I use this to close apps quick or close them real quick proswitcher to get an overview of all my apps and decide which one to go to or close and mquickdo for.... idk more app switching.. if only u could use proswitcher and kirake at the same time but this makes up for it. Love the new free mem thing in the update definitely replacing sbsettings processes and free mem toggle. lol I got holding the statusbar for the circuitous dock, double tap the home for proswitcher, an upward swipe from the center bottom for the mquickdo appswitcher, and obviously a swipe of the statusbar for sbsettings. Also a press of the home button at SB for overboard to chose may nonopen apps. lmao so many choices...
