by Rohit on December 31, 2009

If you want to do multi-tasking on your jail-broken iPhone you have an option to got for a paid Multitasking Cydia App called Multiflow. But if you are looking for a free alternative to Multiflow, you will be happy to know that ProSwitcher is available for free on Cydia by BigBoss.

It works with jail-broken iPhones with OS 2.x and 3.x.  See the video demonstration below to see how it works:

ProSwithcer lets you switch between apps like you can do on an Palm Pre. The applications which you switch, keep running in background.

When you download and Install app called Backgrounder, which allows the apps to run in background, ProSwitcher is like a user interface which allows you to browse through those apps running in background. It also downloads with it LibActivator and PrefernceLoader.

It works pretty well on iPhone 3Gs because of its good speed and more memory it has compared to iPhone 3G and 2G.
