Many people on iPhone and iPad devices are happy with iOS provided multitasking capabilities, but there is a large pool of users who always seek for more options and more real multitasking on their devices. No doubts, iPhone and iPad devices are well designed, and equipped with best hardware chips. They are capable to provide multitasking in real-time on the devices, but no one knows why Apple believes that multitasking on iOS devices is not possible in real time. At current, iOS is providing a very good impression of multitasking with App Switcher to move from one application to another.
But somehow, Android is the winner here in providing multitasking capabilities to its users. While on iOS things are pretty different, application goes in background but on every time interaction it starts from scratch to pull up all data. Majority of applications get killed by iOS system automatically on finding out abnormal number of applications running in the dock. However, things are going to change really soon for iOS users. Especially for the iPhone / iPad Jailbreak users, a new jailbreak tweak is launched with so-called true multitasking options, and application specific running in background settings.
I know there are plenty of jailbreak tweaks available in Cydia that allows you the same features, but bet with me at the end of this article you will be in love with Background Manager – a true multitasking enabling tweak. It comes up with number of additional options that let you set application specific settings, and control which application is going to stay even if you reboot your device.
Background Manager is capable to preserve the current state of any application running on your device during the reboot. It simply allows you to reboot your device without losing any data and information from your screen. Furthermore, it provides real background running application futures to iPhone users.
You can set different background modes in Background Manager Settings pane in your device. It comes up with three different modes ‘Native’, ‘Background’, ‘None’. In Native mode, you can use the iOS default multitasking features, while in Background mode you can set specific application to run in the background even on closing the application window. The application will not be closed until you kill the application via App Switcher on your iPhone. The ‘none’ mode is pretty simple! It simply turns off every kind of multitasking on your device, and let you run application from the scratch every time.
I have been using the Background Manager for a day with Cydia application. It transform Cydia application into multitasking Cydia. Background Manager for iOS 6 is available in Cydia for download. It comes with a fair price tag, which let you support its developer and let you be the part of Cydia community.
Background Manager for iOS 6 is available in BigBoss repository for $0.99
