How to restore the iOS 7 app switcher


The iOS 9 app switcher is not without its faults. Some iPhone owners, especially those with smaller screens, have complained that switching apps is difficult. The problem arises due to overlapping app cards combined with overly fluid motion. Sometimes scrolling between apps results in having to go back and forth several times, as the targeted app card is missed or floats by too quickly. The jailbreak tweak AppSwitcher7 solves these problems by resurrecting a previous app switcher design.

Add a Decline Call Button to iOS

Incoming call controls can be modified on jailbroken iOS devices with the tweak Cou. Once installed, Cou changes the steps required to decline an incoming call. Instead of a "slide to answer" slider, the user is presented with two individual buttons, Decline and Accept.

Tapping Decline will have the same effect as pressing the power button twice, which declines the call. This can make it faster and easier to decline a call, however the buttons can also be accidentally pressed more easily. Cou provides a toggle to enable or disable the tweak entirely.
