App Description

AppSwitch - The missing app that should have been in the box!

Critical acclaims for AppSwitch:
"iOS 4 brought us multitasking, but there's no way to tell what's running in the background versus what's the app you last used. This app solves that problem and more!"

"Great app! The Console feature helped me narrow down MobileMe as the trigger to those random reboots on my iPhone!"

Monitor all background processes

- no more guessing which app is running in the background and which app isn't

Switch to App technology (on supported apps)
- harnessing one of iOS's most powerful features to let you quickly switch to another app
- Shortcuts lets you quickly switch to a feature within another app (e.g. switch to Twitter's compose message screen)
