Auxo Overhauls The iPhone App Switcher

iOS (Jailbroken): Auxo is a jailbreak tweak that changes how the app switcher on iOS works. Auxo uses small previews instead of just an app icon, redesigns the music playback page and adds toggles.

Like the built-in app switcher, you load up Auxo with a double tab of the home button. The main difference you’ll notice right away with Auxo is that it actually gives you a preview of the app currently running instead of just showing you the icon. From there, you can swipe down on an icon to kill that app, or swipe right to get to the redesigned playback controls for the music app. You’ll also find quick toggles to enable functions including Bluetooth, 3G and lock rotation. It seems simple, but Auxo works incredibly well and looks good doing it. It supports iOS 5.1 and up, and you can find it by searching for “Auxo” in Cydia.
