This happens a lot. You open an app, forget about it and the iPhone locks itself. Now when you unlock, the app will still be running. Now imagine your friend unlocks your iPhone and sees something that they weren’t supposed to. Ouch! That’s where Eclair comes in.
Eclair is a Cydia tweak that hides open apps when you lock your iPhone. So, if you have an app running and your iPhone locks itself, the app will be backgrounded. Now when you unlock your iPhone, you will be taken to the Homescreen instead of the app.
After installing the tweak, you get a bunch of options that can be accessed through the Settings app. You can either choose to hide the app or kill the app.
You can also add some apps, that you don’t want to close, to the list of Blacklisted apps. For example, you want to hide an app but don’t want to kill it, then that app will go in to the Blacklisted apps category.
There’s also an option to close any Now Playing Music app after locking your iPhone. A very useful tweak and certainly worth $0.99. You can download Eclair from the BigBoss repo right now.
