It’s a great hack for iPhone and lets you run iPhone app in the background. Aaron Ash, an iPhone developer, has released an interesting app named as Multifl0w that enhances the multitasking interface of backgrounder.

Multifl0w allows you to easily switching between different background applications. The multitasking interface is very similar to that of Safari’s page switch. The multitasking interface displays the thumbnail of each background application. You can swipe through the background application and just tap on the thumbnail to switch to that application.

Multifl0w is a multitasking interface which displays applications that are running and allows you to scroll left and right between them for quick switching. It also includes a snapshot of each of the backgrounded applications. Runs with backgrounder (you can background application by holding the home button). Remember multiflow can only support jailbroken iPhone.

Note: You must install Backgrounder first via Cydia before your install Multiflow. Checkout my instruction on how to install Backgrounder.
