Zephyr adds new multitasking gestures to jailbroken iOS devices


Zephyr

Zephyr is a utility for jailbroken iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 5 and later. The app currently adds support for two new gestures:

  1. You can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to reveal the multitasking app switcher without touching the home button.
  2. You can swipe from the left or right edge of the screen to switch between currently running apps without using the task switcher at all.

In other words, Zephyr can save you time if all you want to do is flip back and forth between two apps — but if you often find yourself swiping from the edge of the display to play games or perform other actions you might accidentally end up switching apps. It’s a neat idea, though.

Developer chpwn plans to add support for additional gestures in the future, and you can disable any gesture that you don’t like in your devices settings.

You can purchase Zephyr from the Cydia store for jailbroken devices for $2.99.
