Must Have iOS 6 Jailbreak Tweaks: Auxo

Looking for some great tweaks to get the most out of your iOS 6 jailbreak? Well if IntelliScreenX is Notification Center as it should be, then Auxo does the same for the app switcher. Auxo makes great improvements in the multitasking dock and takes advantage of the larger iPhone 5 display size.

The first thing you'll notice after installing Auxo is that each app in the switcher is displayed with a preview of its screen. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, these icons can be manipulated easily. Swipe one of the previews down and it's removed from the multitasking bar. Hold down on one and you will be prompted to remove all apps from the bar at once.
