AppHeads: A New Perspective on iOS Multitasking, and a Short Interview with the Developer
AppHeads is a new Cydia tweak by sharedRoutine that enjoyed a decent amount of hype in the jailbreak community. The original teaser post from 3 months ago had almost two hundred upvotes and a little over fifty comments with everyone wondering when they could get their hands on it. The post was this little teaser image in his alpha stage and people ate it up like the next best thing since sliced bread. A little while went by with no updates on it and then just under two weeks ago this post on Reddit popped up and teased it again with a video. It saw over two hundred upvotes and nearly one hundred comments with the same feeling from Redditors, they were basically frothing at the mouth and screaming, TAKE MY MONEY!!. It's now on the BigBoss repo for $4.99 and worth every cent. Taking queue's from MessageHeads by Ian Burns, which is a quick reply and quick compose tweak inspired by Facebook's ChatHeads for Android; AppHeads takes this a few steps further, essentially bringing the same functionality for all apps. It's almost completely usable as a quick compose tweak and since there aren't a lot of these types of tweaks updated for iOS 8, I'll take what I can get for now. That being said, InteractiveMessageNotifications has been updated to work for iOS 8 as a separate paid package, however, the general impression from the community is it leaves a lot to be desired.
