  1. Crashing on my Itouch 4g. The bottom to upward swap for revealing the multitask bar is ok but the left to right app switching is not working for me. The springboard is crashing :( :(

    working just fine on my itouch 4g. is there any update on proxy’s for spire?

  4. Oh wow, I’m so blown away by this earth shattering new app….errrrr, not so much.

  5. Hahahahaha says:

    This is so dumb it hurts.  “coolest tweak ever”, doubt it.  Compare this to something like Activator and how cool is it then?  First of all, you can easily use activator to set this multitasking action.  Second, you are basically paying three dollars for something that lets you swipe like on the ipad.  Stupid.  What’s up with these Devs?  They charge a huge price for crap like this?

    No wonder there is piracy all over the place

  6. Alex LaFroscia says:

    Same here.  I just disabled the left/right switching until the app updates. Maybe then I’ll buy it… ;P

  7. Multifl0w is a much better alternative..

  8. zephyr is so cool, the best tweak ever
