iOS is widely known for it’s simplicity and a user friendly interface. Every task done on an iOS device is like eating a cake. One of the very important and used feature by every user of iOS device is App Switcher. Now you know what App Switcher is. It is an inbuilt feature of iOS which simply allows switching or say do multitasking with apps installed on your iDevice by a double tap on the home button.
Since it does the task it is meant for very quickly, it sure does not include any other features with it. But a new Cydia Tweak called Imperium for iPhone and iPod Touch has arrived in Cydia Store which I think is the best alternative to App switcher. This awesome tweak does many useful tasks together. So let us go through the list of tasks which can be done using this single Cydia Tweak called Imperium.
First of all I would like to mention that this app is developed by Akhil Tolani. So starting with the features of Imperium first is the App switching, Imperium for iPhone and iPod Touch allows you to switch between the apps very easily. You can activate the app from anywhere using Activator Actions of your choice. Other then switching between apps, you can also kill them right from the interface of Imperium which I guess is already available with App Switcher. All these options of app switching and killing appears under the first windows of Imperium which is “Background apps”.
Second window of Imperium for iPone and iPod Touch is “System settings” and it includes toggle for Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode, Location, Bluetooth and also a flashlight switch. Below that you will find options to Tweet, quick search, take snap, send mails and many more. The lyrics option which you can see will provide with the lyrics of the song playing in your iPhone or iPod Touch. The power alert option is very impressive, it allows you to respring, reboot, power off or enter your iPhone/ iPod Touch into a safe mode. The functionality of Imperium does not end here.

You can assing your favorite application to that window from the settings.app. Settings.app also allows you some other options which include adjustment of Animation speed, Background darkness and Blur Radius.

Compatibility and Pricing of Imperium Cydia Tweak for iPhone and iPod Touch
Imperium Cydia Tweak for iPhone and iPod Touch is fully compatible with iOS 5 and above which means it will also works on iOS 5.0.1 and 5.1. However iPad users will not get the advantage of this amazing Cydia Tweak since it is not compatible with it. As far as price is concerned then I must say the developer is selling it for a cheaper price which is $0.99. For only 99 cents you will get Imperium running on your iOS device.
