Today we will be talking about the icons present on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad screen. Now that most of the users are running iOS 4.x.x and iOS 5, they are all enjoying the multitasking feature. There is a very noticeable change that comes when you open the switcher and i am sure you know it but you don’t remember.

Whenever you open the multitasking app switcher and it slides up, the icons present on the home screen become transparent or in a way become ghostly.

The tweak that we have reviewed for you in this post is a latest addition to the Cydia database and the function of the tweak is to retain the actual opaqueness of the icon even when the switcher is opened. I know it is a bit confusing you understand but don’t worry as the images below will explain you the functionality.
