    Access the App Switcher on your device from the Notification Center.
    If you remember from a few days ago, the first tweak ever made for the Notification Center, UISettings, was distributed to the public as a pre-release beta as it is bound to release very soon on the BigBoss repo. The developer of UISettings, qwertyoruiop (@qwertyoruiop), hasn't stopped here with his work. Recently released on Cydia, qwertyoruiop's new tweak WidgetTask allows the user to access the AppSwitcher switcher directly from the Notification Center.

    When you have it installed and enabled (Settings -> Notifications -> WidgetTask), simply pull down your Notification Center to see it in action. WidgetTask behaves just like the regular App Switcher, allowing you to "kill" applications as well as access the music control section and volume. To rephrase, WidgetTask directly ports all the functionality of the regular App Switcher right into your Notification Center.

    So it is a toss up. Either you live with the regular App Switcher, or you use WidgetTask instead to access it on the Notification Center. In my mind, it is personal preference. You can access both the App Switcher and the Notification Center from anywhere so there's no real difference there. And if you compare the two, the only difference is that you have to pay for WidgetTask. It's totally up to you.



    WidgetTask just released, as mentioned, and is available on Cydia for $.99. It is available on all devices running 5.0+.

    Name: WidgetTask
    Author: qwertyoruiop
    Version: 1.0
    Price: $0.99

    If you are looking to get a copy of WidgetTask, go no further - you have an opportunity to win one of 30 copies that qwertyoruiop is offering to our readers here at ModMyi. Here's how you can win:

    The winners of the giveaway have been picked. If you did not get a mention from me on Twitter or Google+, sorry! But don't worry - there's much more to come!

    And make sure to leave a post here expressing your thoughts on this tweak!

    This sounds AWESOME. I already had used Activator to allow a "swipe up from bottom middle" to access App Switcher since a double-tap of the home button becomes increasingly unreliable the more it has been pressed in the life span of a phone. Pulling down from the notification bar has a much higher rate of accuracy. Worth the $0.99.Now just give me an untethered jailbreak for my iPhone 4 so I can upgrade to iOS 5! I think I'm going to go tethered for the first time just because I'm impatient.

    Yep! It also mentions that it behaves just like the regular App Switcher except it's available in the Notification Center.

    At this current time, there's no way of doing a kill all.

    You could always stop reading about all the awesome tweaks we all are getting on our old hardware and enjoy your brand new iPhone 4S instead of whining about something that is out of your control...
    Just a thought...

    KillBackground does that.

    Yep! Liked that you can Enable the skull on both sides of the AppSwitcher to easily/quickly Kill All apps. I wondered if it could somehow be incorporated into this tweak...

    Bro, I was waiting as well for an untether, but to be honest, go ahead and update. Its 100% worth it. Honestly how many times does one reboot their phone after they have all of their tweaks, widgets, etc installed? From personal experience, I love it, especially with this tweak. Awesome work guys!!

    I think you just talked me into tethered jailbreaking. I'm mainly just waiting on bitesms. Lol.

    I don't understand why a tethered Jailbreak is such a burden to people that they refuse to even Jailbreak their devices. How hard is it to keep your phone from dying or having to reboot? I have no problems with it whatsoever. And over time you start to remember which tweaks require a reboot and you avoid them unless you're near a computer. That's just my opinion though, and to each their own.
