Customizing the iOS app switcher has been a favorite pastime of jailbreak developers over the years. Griddy is no different, bringing a grid-styled organization to the app switcher. This tweak provides a variety of customization options, but fundamentally it seeks to replace the overlapping app cards layout featured in iOS 9. Instead, Griddy puts app cards next to each other with the most recently used apps shown first.
Once you installed it, the tweak provides a bunch of customization options that can be accessed directly from the tweak’s preferences pane. The pane is neatly divided into different sections, each of which allow you to customize a certain aspect of the new App Switcher. Griddy provides a wealth of options for custom, such as the enable button, the fixed display mode, change the default grid size, enable or disable the animation, adjust the blurriness of the background, switch display betweenthe app icons and thumbnails .
The tweak displays the open apps as grids in the App Switcher which can be completely customized to look the way you want. With a pinch gesture, you can zoom in or zoom out of the grids to dynamically resize them on the go. Zooming out allows you to view more grids at once.
To close an app, you can either double tap on it, swipe up or down if the grid is horizontally laid out or swipe left or right if it is in vertical mode . Likewise, tapping and holding on an app displays a button to close all the running apps at once.

- Enable or disable Griddy via a kill switch toggle
- Choose a horizontal or vertical grid layout in portrait or landscape mode
- Change the default size of the grid
- Enable or disable grid animations and adjust their speed
- Customize the scale of the grid to make apps look smaller or bigger
- Add or remove app icons from the grid and adjust their scaling size and position

More interestingly, all the changes take effect right away so you are not required to respring your iPhone unless it is needed.
