    Proswitcher is a new (Free) task manager very similar to the PalmOS card manager. Proswitcher is much more functional than MultiFl0w since you can actually close applications when in the card interface. Plus lots of configuration options as far as activation.

    Add Index of /repo to download the package.

    This was an awesome find, Jerry! And it gives you enough setup options so that launching it doesn't interfere with launching any of the other cool j/b apps I have installed (swipe sideways for SBSettings, swipe down for qTweeter, tap/hold for whatever the camera one is called). So far it works very smoothly!

    Do you need to have Backgrounder for it?

    You don't necessarily need backgrounder, but it makes more sense if you are running background apps.

    Are you running backgrounder? Also, have you marked the app to run in the background (pressing and holding the home button within the app)?

    Thanks for the quick response! No, I am not running Backgrounder and no I have not done the press and hold on the home button... do I need too? or is that just for backgrounder...

    I have successfully put in MAIL and PHONE and they stay.... but the only third app I can get to stick is SOME default apps..

    What exactly am I doing wrong here?

    You need to install Backgrounder. This should have been obvious from the description.

    I kind of wish i didn't have to enable an app individually via backgrounder, I miss how in Kirikae it just kept all apps only until i specifically quit them.

    It wasn't obvious to me because in his response above, it was stated, "Not necessary".

    I do appreciate the response as now with backgrounder loaded.... I can use ProSwitcher the way it's intended.

    Thank you for you time and assistance!

    I went into backgrounder and turned on the apps to always be enabled... that way I don't have to do it but once.... plus you can select which apps you want and don't want from a master list... or blacklist the ones you never want.

    Uh, now I know I'm not the coldest can of Coors Light in the fridge, but uh... what the hell is the point of this app? You have to launch an app to launch multiple apps? I tried it without Backgrounder installed and with Backgrounder installed, and you can only keep three apps open? Huh?

    HEHE... I'm laughing cuz I had the same issue! Once you open the app you want... enable the backgrounding by pressing and holding the home button until you get the message " backgrounding enabled". This will allow you have as many apps on proswitcher as you like.... of course... Backgrounder should be loaded to do this.

    I currently use Kirikae and it works well. But, how does Proswitcher compare to Kirikae and Multifl0w?
    12-20-2009 04:44 PM
  22. DRTigerlilly's Avatar
    @John it's waaaaay better than Multifl0w which is clunky & unstable. same premise, but works much better.

    Kirikae is a list of running apps, Proswitcher is a more visual interaction w/ cards like the palm pre, you could easily see it in the video in the initial post.

    Kirikae was never the most stable app out there.

    Neither was Winterboard. But so far ProSwitcher seems stable. So far...

    I've been messing with this all day... nothing better to do... lol!!! The only thing that bugs me on this is I can't keep the phone app off proswitcher... even blacklisting doesn't seem to help... any ideas?

    Thanks

    PS... very stable from what I see so far....
