iPhones are one of the most popular smartphones available in the market today and many users want to customize the way iOS looks and works. Auxo jailbreak revives iOS app switching which users can change to suit their preference; however, unfortunately, the jailbreak is still in the development stage.

iDownload Blog posted a video which shows the jailbreak test deployment to iPhone 4 along with the features which Auxo brings. The extra vertical space on the iPhone 4 can be utilized to have card-like icons that give users more information about their running apps.

Even though the Auxo jailbreak is not finished yet the video shows impressive features which are brought to the iPhone 4.

"The most obvious improvement made by Auxo when compared to the stock iOS app switcher is the new card preview of recent apps. Instead of merely containing an app icon representing the running app, Auxo displays a miniaturized snapshot of the current state of the app for context," reported iDownload Blog.

iDownload Blog further reported that apps can be quickly removed from the switcher just with a swipe down motion, and with the help of multi-touch feature users can remove two apps at a time.

Per the video, the jailbreak will enable users to quickly change Wi-Fi, brightness, and tethering settings without having to jump into the phone's Settings app.

"All in all, Auxo is definitely in my top 10 jailbreak tweaks of all time, perhaps even top 5. It significantly improves the look, feel, and function of the app switcher, and it does so without causing any stability issues," noted iDownload Blog.

The Auxo may bring impressive features to the iPhone and per iDownload Blog, the jailbreak may be round the corner on Cydia. The report suggests the jailbreak runs smoothly on iPhone 4 and no information is available for iPhone 5 yet. Auxo is available only for iOS 6, but an iOS 5 version is said to be on the way.

Do you own an iPhone, are you happy the way it looks or do you think you should jailbreak your iPhone?
