Thread: 'NoSwitchBar' Removes the Redundant Status Bar From App Switcher Preview Cards in iOS 8

    Default 'NoSwitchBar' Removes the Status Bar From App Switcher Preview Cards in iOS 8


    Typically, each and every one of the applications in your iOS 8 App Switcher show a Status Bar in the preview card for the application you're looking at. Not only is this really redundant, but it's also not very nice on the eyes, especially if you're one of the minimalist breed like I am.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called NoSwitchBar by iOS developer xCeReLoN is now available for free right now in Cydia that completely does away with the Status Bar in the application preview cards in the iOS 8 App Switcher.

    As shown above, with the tweak installed and enabled, the App Switcher has a cleaner look and feel to it without as much clutter coming from the Status Bar that usually repeats itself in every application card.

    While we think that it makes for a nicer look, it would be cool if only the middle application preview card showed the Status Bar instead of none of them, as this would still allow us to see the Status Bar information without it feeling as redundant as appearing in every single one of the preview cards in the iOS 8 App Switcher.

    Nonetheless, the tweak comes with a preferences pane where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, as well as respring to save your changes:



    When we tried respringing to save our changes, nothing happened. So we rebooted our device and that did the trick, so keep in mind that you may have to reboot your device to save the changes you make in the Settings application instead of respringing it. We've reached out to the developer on this issue and are awaiting a response.

    If you want to give NoSwitchBar a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak works with iOS 8 and may also work with iOS 7, although we haven't tested on iOS 7 to be sure.
