Zephyr, the jailbreak tweak that brought true multitasking and multi-touch gestures to iOS, has received another update. Developer Chpwn is always providing updates for this tweak, with new features, improvements and bug fixes. The latest update adds landscape support to the iPhone, landscape app switching and notification peeking.
Zephyr 1.3 and all the previous versions have been downloaded thousands of times, and is one of the most popular tweaks on Cydia. If you’re a jailbroken iOS device user, then you must’ve heard of this tweak or better, own it. There are two important updates that make it into v1.3.
First, the iPhone and iPod Touch gets Landscape support, which brings landscape app switching. In landscape mode, you can switch between apps just by swiping left or right, no need to hit the Home button to switch between apps. Secondly, whenever you’re in an app and want to take a peek at the Notification Center, just pull down to reveal a part of the Notification Center. It doesn’t slide all the way down as it normally does. That can be useful sometimes.
- Landscape switcher.
- Switch apps in landscape.
- Swipe down the app to open.
- Peek at notifications and widgets!
- Performance improvements.
- Minor bug fixes.
That’s all the new features in Zephyr 1.3 apart from some bug fixes and other improvements. If you’ve already bought the tweak, you can upgrade to the latest version for free. Zephyr is available in the BigBoss repo for $4.99.
