How to Get iPhone True Multitasking Cydia Tweak

Step 1. Before you can install Watchdog iOS 8 tweak on your gadget you should add this source to your repo: http://allankerr.github.io/repo/ – now you can search for it on Cydia and download.

Step 2. The tweak is in beta stage. Still it brings multitasking and this is what we are looking for, aren’t we?

Step 3. When you usually close applications they stop running. The tweak however lets you run some apps in the background [they don’t have to be launched]. To do so, go to App Switcher on iOS 8 platform and tap the application icon you want to launch in the background. It will be working unless you choose to tap it again and remove from this state.

Step 4. Of course when you have apps running in the background your iPhone battery will be drained faster. Still this could be ok when you, for example, need to upload a lot of files to Google Photos or do something else that requires an app to be working in the background while you are doing other tasks.

You can background different iOS 8 apps using Watchdog tweak.
