Hi,

Wondering if there any mods to replace or tweak the default task switcher in Android. Something like the HTC switcher (showing 9 cards at once) would be ideal.

So far I only have seen play store apps that only seem to supplement the default switcher not replace or tweak it.

Any about?

Thanks, i have seen that but it doesn't replace the default switcher and doesn't have a multi card view. I'm after something that can I see all / most recent apps with that's quicker than scrolling through a list that only shows a few at a time.

On the AICP ROM there's Omniswitch. It replaces it and you can also set favorite apps too. I love it

Thanks for the suggestion, having a look now but the version I can find is giving me permissions issues when flashed. I'll have a play and see if I can get it working

Did you flash the rom or just trying to install the apk from a different source on top of your current rom? That might be the issue

I found a flashable zip version, don't want to install the rom (yet anyway). It should be workable as it seems to be built with porting to different ROMs in mind etc.

I played with the HTC M8 yesterday in a store and I'd really like that card-based task switcher as well. The current stock Android switcher is pretty, but even at the time it was introduced it was clearly a step backwards functionality-wise, compared with the Gingerbread task switcher... The new HTC thing is pretty much what Google should've done.
