The famous hacker Chpwn has updated his Zephyr tweak to version 1.1. It now includes new multitasking gestures that can switch apps and bring up the app switcher on the iPhone and iPod Touch, just like the iPad. Opening the multitasking panel in Zephyr is implemented using a gesture from the bottom of the screen to the top. Similarly, the Action Center call is implemented, which uses a reverse gesture from top to bottom.
There was also another feature spotted by Zephyr users. Instead of double-tapping the Home button, you can swipe left to right or right to left from the edge of the display to switch between apps.
Zephyr's Preferences have settings that you can use to customize switching between programs or invoke multitasking panels using two, three, or four fingers. The Keyboard Disables feature allows you to exclude the influence of the keyboard on the active switching gesture, and the Disables in Applications option - blocks the tweak from working in selected games and applications.
What's New in Zephyr 1.1:
- long upward gesture to close the application;
- horizontal gesture to switch multiple tasks;
- a short pause when swiping up allows you to call the App Switcher;
- general performance improvements, bug fixes and stability.
