Change the iOS 9 app switcher with Griddy

Griddy settings

Modifying or improving the iOS app switcher has been a favorite pastime of jailbreak developers over the years. Griddy is no different, bringing a grid-styled organization to the app switcher. This tweak provides a variety of customization options, but fundamentally it seeks to replace the overlapping app cards layout featured in iOS 9. Instead, Griddy puts app cards next to each other with the most recently used apps shown first. Once installed, the settings provide a built-in guide on how to use the tweak along with a bevy of different options.

Griddy features a variety of cosmetic options as well as several default gestures to control apps. Once the Griddy app switcher is invoked, double tap on an app card to quit the app. Swiping will also close individual apps, while a pinch to zoom can adjust the size of Griddy app cards on the fly. This is an especially unique feature. Behavior in both landscape and portrait orientations can be customized as well.
