app is called itching thumb... its free. can be used as a task switcher or a home replacement launcher.
app will let you easily switch between apps using a like cards preview of all running apps, similar to palm pres and pixie. Great app and very stable. no FC on my evo....(knock on wood)...just select it as your home button, and your good to go!

Edit: update is out, it's a manual one. It gets rid of the bottom dock in itching thumb.

Very nice. Looks nicer than visual task switcher.

I couldn't get the double click feature working that makes itching thumb pop up. I did, however, bind itching thumb to my long press home button under cm6 settings and this thing is smooth as hell!

It's a shame that it only works in portrait mode though

I like it! It's very fast and responsive. And I like that it can be used in conjunction with my current launcher, ADW, or any other that I choose to use. Thanks for posting this.

Double tap on the home button. A single tap will not activate it.

@the OP

Very nice indeed.

Thanks for showing me this magicriggs, I love it!

The extra app launcher on the bottom is sweet too!

Also, nice magic tricks, you're good!
