How often have you sat on the couch with your iPhone and just opened the multi tasking window to turn off every single application there was opened, just to speed your device up. This can be a rather time consuming process and one maybe Apple could have automated where all apps just shut down at click of a button. This would have been remarkably convenient, but as of now, we are stuck with closing at max three apps at a time.
It is at times like these when the jailbreaking community comes to our rescue. If you have been using a jailbroken iPhone which runs iOS 7 and above then to help take care of the situation, you can turn to a Cydia Tweak called SwitchSpring. The tweak is available for absolutely free in the Big Boss repo so you do not have to fret about paying money to actually close apps.
Working of the Tweak
The way the tweak works is that, it triggers an instant respiring of your springboard or quits all apps when you dismiss the home screen by swiping it away from within the Multi Tasking window. If you look at your device without installing this tweak, you will observe that double clicking the home button would bring up the apps open which can be swiped away. However, the home layout which is at the left most of the multi tasking window cannot be dismissed. This is exactly where the tweak adds it’s magic potion. Once you have installed SwitchSpring, you will be able to swipe the Home Screen away which would pop up a message asking you to either respiring the springboard or to quit apps or simply cancel the action.
There is no lag or jitters when this is triggered, and in fact is perhaps the best way of implementing such an action as the tweak feels very natural to pull off. You can only perform this action when you have the device unlocked and on the main springboard. Once you have installed the tweak, do make sure you restart your device as there have been cases reported of the tweak not working without that. This is one of those features that we would like Apple to bring by default. Maybe, if not exactly like this, a quick toggle on top of the multitasking window or even in the control center to close all the opened apps so that we do not have to resort to closing every app one by one.
