Default Task switcher /multitasking like the one on sense 5-6?

I like what HTC did with the task switcher on their phones, is there an app that works like it? It's just a bunch of "cards " so there's no need for scrolling, you just "flip " the ones you want to close

It's kind of disappointing because no one bothered to port these frameworks. Sense 4's multitasking interface has been ported to the Nexus S, Galaxy S and other devices before by editing xml's, but apparently these are too device/rom specific so people probably think it's not worth the hassle.

This is so much more efficient than Google's implementation, I haven't tried it but Slims task switcher seems pretty nice.

I personally use switchr

Check Omni's g+ page and have a look at the new multi tasking feature there working on it looks epic

I personally don't like switchr I think it totally gets rid of the eye candy, you're just switching between icons :'(

Which slim task switcher are you referring to? Slim Kat's? As far as I know they're just using the stock android task switcher [emoji21]

That's how it looks. Main change to aosp is that it is bug free, way way faster + you can pin favorite apps. But basically if you use it for a week you will see that you silently change your workflow on the phone. If it is optical for everyone nice....well to each his own...it follows googles new ui card style and transparent status and navbar etc.

And yes developed by SlimROMs and available in the weeklies and on coming Monday as well on stable release 4.0 of slimkat
