For every great gadget there's always the love and hate affair. Nevertheless iPhone is a great gadget. "Those who knows how to use it will love it, while those who doesn't dislike it", is the sentence I always get from the second group of users. I find that sentence too general. Doesn't that apply to all things in life? Be it computer, cars, tools or even people. I admit iPhone is quite restrictive. Thus I would say, "Whether or not you like an iPhone depends on whether you know how to Jailbreak it!"
Back in the old days when iPhone can't even forward SMS I been doing against Steve's wills while saving drafts and creating templates too (iSMS). While you stream YouTube videos, I downloaded them and watch later (MXTube), all on the iPhone. So today I am going to teaching you how to run multitasking on iPhone.
Multitasking is not a restriction on iPhone. It's happening on the iPhone all the while. Mail, Phone, SMS, Safari and iPod are all running concurrently. In my previous post, backgrounder is the Cydia app that helps put application into multitasking. Now couple with Kirikae you get a lovely app switcher, without the need to exit to homescreen to gain access into the next app. You can also add your frequently use apps into favorites without the need to flip thru pages looking for them. There are various ways to fire up Kirikae. No Command-Tab here, so I change double tap from home to Kirikae. For example I want to use Facebook and IM+ at the same time. I fire up both, put them into background. When I am in IM+, I just double click, it will take me to the active screen, choose Facebook and I am there. And the cross button allows you to terminate an app without the need to go into it. Sweet.
Who says iPhone doesn't support multitasking? You just don't know how to Jailbreak it.
