Add Settings Toggles to the iOS App Switcher

A new jailbreak tweak named Cobalia replaces the contacts icons in the App Switcher with Settings toggles instead. For those who find themselves never using the contacts icons, or have them switched off entirely, this real estate in the App Switcher can be put to better use. Sure, the Control Center is never far away, but having recently used apps and Settings toggles in the same spot will appeal to some users.

Once installed, Cobalia will add FlipSwitch toggles directly to the App Switcher. These will appear even if the favorites and recently used contacts icons are turned off in Settings. Configuring the tweak under Settings -> Cobalia -> Switches makes it possible to select which toggles are present in the App Switcher. Everything from Airplane Mode to Vibration and Respring is available, and will appear directly above the recently used app cards.

Some of the toggles even have options themselves. The order of the activated toggles can be configured by dragging the enabled toggles into the desired order. Swiping from right to left on the FlipSwitch toggles in the App Switcher will reveal any additional toggles that don't fit on the screen. Both the Toggles section and individual toggles themselves can be labeled with text as well.

Cobalia is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for free. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.0-8.1.2 with TaiG.
