- Improved performance and reliability
- Fix a number of bugs, including some crashes.
That who is unaware, Zephyr cydia tweak, developed by prominent jailbreak developer chpwn, brings Harmattan-style multitasking gestures for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 5 and above. Unlike other similar tweaks, Zephyr does not require Activator or other jailbreak tweaks to work.
Swiping up with your single finger brings the app-switcher multitasking tray (and normally it gets activated with a double tap of the home button); swiping left or right from the edge lets you switch between different apps without straining your hardware home button. Both gestures are simple, intuitive, and exactly the kind of function that Apple will wish to add in its future firmwares. Check out the video demo, before you decide to buy Zephyr tweak for your iOS device.
Zephyr cydia tweak works on iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPad and iPad 2. In order to install Zephyr tweak, you must jailbreak your device on iOS 5 first. For iPhone 4S and iPad2, use Absinthe (guide here) and for other iOS devices, run redsn0w. After installing Zephyr via Cydia, reboot your iOS device. No icon will be added to the homescreen or settings available, however.
