Backgrounder Adds New Toggles for Fast App Switching

No comments:



Backgrounder has been updated to svn.r553 and adds new toggles to force and disable fast app switching.

Backgrounder allows for total control of backgrounding on an iPhone/iOS-based device. With Backgrounder, *you* decide when an app should keep running, and when it should quit. Backgrounder provides true backgrounding; minimized apps can be made to continue to run as if they were still the foreground app.

Changelog for svn.r553:
● NEW: Option to toggle forcing of fast app switching (iOS 4.0+ only). This option is now OFF by default, as forced fast app switching can cause issues for some apps. Note that this functionality was ON by default in the previous Backgrounder release (r521).
● NEW: Option to enable/disable fast app switching altogether (iOS 4.0+ only). If disabled, voip/audio/gps/task-continuation apps will still background, while apps that just take up memory will quit (and thus free up memory). This option is especially useful for users of older devices, such as iPhone 3G.
● MOD: Cleaned up preferences dialog.
● MOD: The status bar icon is now shown for the "Fall Back to Native" case as well. (iOS 4.0+ only)
● MOD: Added support for iOS 4.0.2.
● FIX: When backgrounding was off or disabled, some apps failed to quit or would quit when reopened.

You can download Backgrounder free from BigBoss Cydia repository.
