The future of Multifl0w?

People miss the cards style multitasking.

So do I, so I’m going to bring it back to the iPhone.

In fact, I’ve been keeping a secret; it’s in beta. Right now. I’d been wanting card switching on 4.x for a while now, and had rewritten Multifl0w from scratch to run with improved speed expandability. But I wanted something different, which is why I made the Exposé style first. I absolutely love the one-tap-away ability of it.

If you haven’t seen the Exposé style switching, here’s a picture (maybe this will keep your attention):

But there was a problem: it didn’t scale well for tons of apps. I don’t mind this at all; I have around 4 apps that I use on a regular basis (don’t worry, the compass in the picture is not one of them), and that’s it. But people seem to really miss this. They’re dying to have more than 9 apps visible at the same time. If you’re one of these people: you’re awesome.

I want to make something you’ll love. I want Multifl0w to be a reason to jailbreak, and something that makes those “open platform phone” users jealous because they don’t have cool stuff like this. Perhaps Apple will even take note. After all, they’ve taken after the jailbreak scene in copy/paste, spell checking, rotation inhibitor, and “backgrounding”. Heck, jailbreakers even had third party apps before an official version came to the masses.

Anyway, it’s coming along well so far. It’ll be done when it’s done, but I’m guessing a mid-January release.

Pics or it didn’t happen:

Also, it’s really cool on an iPad :)

Edit: Just to clarify, the Expose mode will still remain an option.
