Sling Apps Up to Close Them in iOS 7 | Springshot Cydia Tweak Review
February 22, 2014 in Cydia Apps & Tweaks by
It’s a very cool application which helps to sling down to close any open application. Its available for free for Jailbreak devices.
Normally when you go into the iOS 7 App Switcher, you swipe up on the application preview cards for them to be closed. A new free jailbreak tweak called Springshot by iOS developer Adam Bell changes the way you close your App Switcher applications by taking some inspiration from WebOS.
With this tweak installed, you can swipe downwards on applications in the iOS 7 App Switcher, and they’ll appear to bounce right back into place before rocketing up towards the top of the display and then closing. The tweak is named what it is because the application preview card shoots up towards the top of the display like a slingshot, but the name plays off of the word “SpringBoard” with that in mind.
Springshot is a completely aesthetic tweak and doesn’t offer much functionality to iOS that isn’t already there, but if you’re into the idea of customization, then Springshot might be worth taking a look at.
