With every update, iOS is getting better and better at allocating memory and putting it to good use. However, some iOS devices are still known to run slow when having too many apps running in the background.

A new Jailbreak tweak Slide2Kill8 Lite has been released to solve the aforementioned issue. Slide2Kill8 allows the user to kill all apps in the App Switcher with one fell swoop. After installing the tweak, instead of swiping up to kill one app running in the switcher, swiping down on any app card will kill every app that has been opened or running.

After killing all apps running in the background, the user should find iOS to run a bit smoother and faster. Slide2Kill8 Lite is available in the Cydia for free.
