[Jailbreak Tweak] Imperium Brings A New Multitasking Alternative To iOS Devices
iOS developer Akhil Tolani has decided to make a new multitasking app dubbed Imperium with even more options and functionality built into it than the generic multitasking App Switcher.
Imperium is similar to one of Akhil Tolani’s pervious tweaks, which was named SuperSwitcher in the attempt to make the multitasking App Switcher more functional. The big difference between Imperium and SuperSwitcher is SuperSwitcher required you to use the App Switcher to activate it, while Imperium can be activated from anywhere using an Acitvator action.
- New multitasking interface.
- Toggels for bluetooth, airplane mode, Wi-Fi, location service and even a switch for flashlight
- A shortcut for composing Tweets
- Quick Photograph
- Google Search
- Composing new e-mails
- Showing song lyrics
- Options for respringing, rebooting, power cycle or entering safe mode.
- A slider for adjusting brightness and volume
There is an additional window with a list of every application on your iDevice so you can quickly launch any application you want to. The list goes in alphabetical order, so if you know what you’re looking for you know where to scroll. In this very same window are four application shortcuts, which you pick from the Imperium preferences pane in the Settings application.
Imperium is available in Cydia Store via BigBoss repo for $0.99. If you are looking for an easy way to access system features all in one location, then Imperium is something to take a look at. If you’re content with using Apple’s multitasking App Switcher and you currently use a different toggle or shortcut system like Deck, then this tweak might not be for you.
