- Zephyr adds awesome multitasking swipes for your device.
Zephyr is one of those tweaks that I will be using for a long time because it eliminates the use of the home button when in apps. Simply swiping up closes the app or swiping left and right switches from app to app in an instant which is really helpful for me. Call me lazy, but I sometimes get annoyed because I have to press the home button when I wish I can just tap on it.
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to close apps
- Switch apps simply by swiping left or right from the edge.
- Smoothly swipe up to see your multitasking switcher.
- The best way to really multitask
- Overflow gives your dock a little style. *works best with Inifinidock [$0.99]*
- Lets you add a dynamic ‘Coverflow’ effect
Overflow isn’t a major tweak or anything, but it is a really cool one because it changes your dock icons and gives it that coverflow effect. This works best with Infinidock because you can add more apps to your dock and swipe between apps in a smooth manner making Overflow look even better.
Price: Overflow [FREE] & Infinidock [$0.99]
