It's almost an article of faith among the in-the-know crowd that the
iPhone OS 4.0 will bring third party multitasking to the iPhone and
iPad. Steve-o claims it's just too much of a drain on the battery, while
other handset makers let their customers be big kids and make up their
own minds about power management.
Well, perhaps the competition from Google phones might be enough to force the issue, and if it doesn't, here's someone who's cracked the multitasking nut beautifully.
For starters, a lot of people have wondered how the interface might work for multitasking. What sort of features would it have, how would you activate it, what would be in place to remind you of what's up and running? Well, appadvice.come has found your solution.
Just for jailbroken phones (and the reasons to jailbreak get more and more compelling as time goes on), Circuitous is available through either Cydia or Rock and lets you easily and intuitively control multitasking on your iPhone. It delivers clear and simple controls and the dock manifestation is the best use of iPhone screen space we've seen in some time. Best of all, the app is free. That's right. Free, just like a jailbroken iPhone is free to do with as you please.Whatever the kids in Cupertino have cooking up for iPhone OS 4.0, it'll be a challenge to come up with something sleeker, cooler, and more Mac-friendly than this app. Apple should take note of the names visible in the copyright, because if they're no closer to putting together something wonderful, they should give this fellow a call.
