    Default [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!

    Name: AlwaysClose
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0

    I'm guessing this is exactly the same as "SwitcherCleaner" from BigBoss repo?

    Yes, but switcherCleaner can also only show the running apps instead of every app you opened

    I think so. SwitcherCleaner has been working great for me.

    Apples method for closing apps is ridiculous.

    Does anyone use that on a daily basis? Its far too slow.

    I use it everyday to close the running apps. Having zephyr makes it easier because you dont have to double click home button for app switcher to show

    This is exactly like one of the settings in Springtomize 2.

    But it is free, so that's always a plus if you don't want to pay for Springtomize...

    Well, I keep up with this type of stuff, and this is the first I've heard of this concept. I don't want any other features, just the anti-jiggle mode appcloser, so other tweaks wouldn't do me much good. Very nice, I'm getting it.

    Why are any of you "closing" apps in this way? "On a daily basis?" There's NO reason to do this. You're just wasting time. iOS is smart enough to manage all of this for you.

    I close my apps like 100 times a day minimum I'm always running out of ram on my 4S, dropping to 20MB is easy to do so closing apps is necessary for me. Sometimes I even have to close apps from processes on sbsettings to free up more ram. I'm at 116mb and all I have open is safari and scramble 😳 close scramble 190. Let's hope the next iPhone that comes out has 1gb of ram or more.

    Has anyone used this tweak and compared it to SwitcherCleaner?

    In the settings for Zephyr you can disable it in any app.
