Aaron Ash brought you Multiflow, which is a popular jailbreak application that has a Palm Pre Expose-like multitasking to iOS last November 2009. He released the application even before Apple revealed the multitasking feature in iOS 4. He also released the revamed version of his application that is compatible to iOS 4 as well as the latest version of the Multiflow (v2.1).
The latest version of Multiflow 2.1 brings back the WebOS Cards-style multitasking interface to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Multiflow is an application switcher for handsets that are already jailbroken, which is a lot better than the default app switcher. You can close the applications running in the background by either clicking on the X button or flicking the app snapshot up or pulling it down.
The latest version of Multiflow 2.1 for iOS 4 comes with the following features:
- It can show up to 9 applications in the same screen for convenient task switching and much easier than Apple’s
- The applications can be dragged and dropped when you rearrange them.
- Multiflow can work alongside or totally replace Apple’s default task switcher by going to Settings –> Multifl0w –> Activation Methods –> Home Button – tap on Double Press
- It is also compatible on iOS 3.1.X (but you need to install the free Backgrounder jailbreak app).
You can also choose between Expose and Cards interface by going to the Settings app (Multifl0w –> Switcher Style –> Exposé or Cards). If you want to use the default app switcher with Multifl0w then you need to set Multifl0w’s activation method to something other than Double-Press Home. Multiflow is available for a small price of $4.99 on Cydia App Store.
