What is NewGridSwitcher?

NewGridSwitcher tweak refreshes the look of default app grid switcher available in iOS. After installation, the jailbreak tweak will enable the native look and replace the switcher built into iOS 12 and iOS 13. There are no settings to configure. To use the native app switcher you must remove the tweak.

The tweak displays the list of opened applications in two rows allowing you to view four windows at once. This allows you to navigate and switch between apps much faster. What more, NewGridSwitcher is also compatible with KillX tweak that offers an option to close all apps with one slide down.

NewGridSwitcher tweak makes much better use of the available canvas space by replacing the native scrolling card-based switcher with a grid-centric switcher. The differences between each one are presented in the screenshot above.
