The follow up to 2012’s popular jailbreak tweak Auxo is now available on Cydia. The update includes a number of features: unified view for the Control Center and app switcher, a Quick Switcher for moving between apps using gestures, and a hot corners feature that allows access to apps by touching the corners of an iOS device.
Unlike stock iOS 7, Auxo 2 allows users to access the app switcher, multitasking controls, and Control Center toggles entirely with the use of gestures. It combines all three elements into one interface and offers a variety of settings for customization.
The Auxo 2’s Quick Switcher allows users to switch between apps by swiping from the bottom left of a device and releasing a finger on an open app. The Quick Switcher is limited to six apps by default, but unlimited apps can be enabled in settings. The animation for Quick Switcher is fluid.
The Multi-Center feature provides a single interface for toggles, App Switcher, and media controls. It switches a few elements around: AirPlay and control toggles at the top, followed by media controls at the bottom. Again, the animations and the customization options are impressive.
Finally, the Hot Corners feature allows users to return to the home screen by swiping up from the bottom right corner of the screen. It also allows users to access the app switcher from swiping up from the bottom left of the display. This enables users to access both UI elements with only gestures as opposed to using the home button.
Auxo 2 also allows users to scroll through iTunes Radio tracks with its media controls, which isn’t possible with the stock Music app. Other features to note: accessing the last open app, inverting the Hot Corners feature, and disabling the tweak in selected apps.
Auxo 2 is available on the Cydia Store for $3.99, but it is available at a discounted price of $1.99 for users who bought the original Auxo tweak.
