Close All Apps Running In Background From Notification Center With WeeKillBackGround Pro [Cydia Tweak]
Apple introduced multitasking back in 2010 when they introduced iOS 4 and it was a job well done. You can easily switch between running applications by double tapping Home button and it’s fairly easy to kill them as well. Killing apps which are running in background of your iOS device is not as simple as it sound, couple of weeks ago a debate was started regarding iOS Multitasking on every forum. We also reported about a developer who elucidated the working of iOS multitasking in a video. But still we love to kill every app from “multitasking” app switcher by tapping those small minus signs.
If you’re a one of those people who love to kill background applications to free some RAM and make your iOS device a fraction faster then we have a Notification Center tweak for you. Yes, a Notification Center tweak AGAIN, WeeKillBackground Pro is a notification center tweak which allows you to kill your iOS device’s background applications straight from Notification Center. WeeKillBackground Pro will easily kill background application from Notification Center so you don’t have to go in app switcher EVERY TIME to kill background apps. This is a really handy tweak which will make your iDeviec a little faster.
WeeKillBackground Pro Release Notes and Features:
Close all running apps from Notification Center. A single tap closes all apps that are running in background and removes them from the app switcher. This will save battery life and RAM. Also you won’t need to manually remove every app by tapping the red minus on every icon. WeeKillBackground speeds up your device and makes clearing the switcher easier than ever! WeeKillBackground Pro adds the following options to just closing the apps:
- Add apps to except from closing
- Customize the button label
- Dismiss NotificationCenter when finished closing apps
- Close the apps when the NotificationCenter has been dragged on screen and/or when it has been dismissed
- Close Apps every X minutes (adjustable from 0.5 to 120 minutes)
- Fully customizable background
- Customizable Font color
- Full iPad support
- More options coming very soon
I’m really skeptical about working of this tweak because as I mentioned above that iOS handles multitasking very smartly and killing apps may not kill the actual process running in background. But you can still give it a shot.
WeeKillBackground Pro is available for download in Cydia app store for $0.99 under BigBoss’ repo.
