Switchability tweak adds app switcher in Reachability view

A new Cydia tweak called Switchability brings the iOS App Switcher to the Reachability view on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Making the best of all the empty space when you turn on Reachability.

Switchability lets you use the App Switcher from the Reachability view, making it easier to switch apps instead of double tapping the Home button every time. The tweak comes with plenty of options and gives a 3D or 2D Card like App Switcher, similar to how the Tabs appear in the Safari app. You also get other options that let you change the Title font, Space, adjust size of the Reachability view and more.

Once enabled, you’ll simply have to Double Tap the TouchID/Home button to launch Reachability and the App Switcher. Tap on an app card to switch to that app or swipe left to disable it. At the bottom of the App Switcher, you’ll also find options to close all apps and add your favorite apps.

The iMaker jailbreak tweak, available in Cydia right now, is developed by Javier Brito and allows you to make unique animations for your app icons in three easy steps:

  1. Select the icons you want to animate, such as those with unread notifications, have been recently updated, or the last five applications that have been backgrounded.
  2. Select the base animation.
  3. Add any desired special effects.

Almost every base animation and special effect can be combined along with different speeds. This adds up to a large amount of possible animations. There is even a live preview in the tweak’s settings that will help in fine tuning your creation. iMaker requires iOS 7 and you can configure its options in the Settings app.

iMaker can be installed from the BigBoss repo for $1.99. If you wish to just try out iMaker, the developer has also released a “Lite” version in Cydia, which is ad-supported with limited features. Share your thoughts about this tweak in the comments section.
