    Default Add More Real Estate to the App Switcher With 'MultiStorey'


    Apple’s idea behind the multitasking App Switcher is decent, but it’s very small and can be a pain for larger fingers. If Apple’s one-row multitasking App Switcher seems too small for you, then you should check out a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed MultiStorey by iOS developer JamieD360. With MultiStorey, as the name suggests, you will have more than one row of multitasking App Switcher goodness.

    MultiStorey makes multitasking easier because more application icons are shown in an enlarged area. This means that getting to your applications that are running in the background either won’t require you to scroll at all, or you will be able to scroll a lot less than if you only had one row showing you all your opened applications since more content is displayed per page.

    In addition to creating the additional row for multitasking, it also combines the iPod music interface with the volume bar interface so that it all fits on one page. Tapping on the volume slider indicator icon will transform the slider into a brightness slider and vice versa. MultiStorey also shows you the artist name when music is playing and not just the song name.

    Unlike the similar paid tweak called Switchy, by iOS developer John Coates, MultiStorey is much more simplistic because it simply increases the size of the App Switcher without adding any major functionality. If you recall, Switchy also added a kill-all-apps function and a settings page to the App Switcher as well as graphical page indicators.

    MultiStorey is worth the download since it's not only free, but also because it adds some cool new features to the multitasking App Switcher and also makes it more maneuverable. It has no options to configure and it works with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Be sure to give it a try and let us know your thoughts about it.

    Just brought Switchy as the addition of the brightness slider and a single button to close all apps is just what I was looking for.

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.
