Launch Apps Switcher From iOS 5 Notification Center Pop Up On iPhone

We all are completely aware about how to use the app switcher that contains the currently running apps. Obviously this is one of ways by which you can have access to the running apps which support multitasking but what I don’t like about the switcher, is the double press home button convention that you need to follow. Firstly it is not so convenient for your thumb and secondly it uses the home button for a pretty good number of times which would affect the functionality of it in the long run.

Now all those of you who really don’t like the double press home button thing about the switcher and are running iOS 5, have a fair chance of getting a smile on your face. As we know the latest firmware brings Notification Center as a new and brilliant features and if you own a jailbroken device then you can open the app switcher from the notification center as well.

Yes its true. WidgetTask for Notification Center is a amazing tweak that adds the app switcher to your iOS 5 notifications center as well making switching between apps a lot more convenient and home-button-press free.

The tweak is free for download from Cydia and you can find the same under Cydia search by entering WidgetTask without spaces.

Conclusion: Fantastic tweak that completely avoids the need of pressing the home button for app switcher.
