    DoubleTap Rebirth - In development

    The Developer of this app is Conn18

    Bored of the boring iPod controls that pop up when you double tap the Home button? Try a whole new experience.

    Double tap the Home button while surfing the web, listening to tunes, or playing a game, and the status bar extends, giving you quick access to your favorite Apps, your most recent SMS and options to call the contact, iTunes-Esque iPod controls, and a place to jot down notes.

    When you're using an app you can double tap home to bring up this menu.
    You can access all the functions on the menu and double tap home to exit the menu and return to the app you were using. If you select a favorite app on the menu it will exit the current app and take you to that one.

    This tweak was inspired by Google Android.

    At this stage, it is VERY experimental. It doesn't work sometimes and there are many bugs and tweaks that need to be made.


    Please check the official blog ocasionally for updates.

    Same with the apps, they dont sit right up there.
    Have it full screen and make the bottom black and put the apps there.
    Put the notes up the top, make it so you actually type them.
    Have the iPod controls longer and smoother and not so they look bunched up, make them spread out.
    I will make a UI that I think would look good so hold on

    There we go, not the best, but I think it may be a small improvement if you can make it better?

    But I don't think I could use this, GJB's will be ALOT better; but well done.

    Sounds and looks awesome, but as stated before, the UI could use some tweaking, maybe try not using the leopard styled volume control and keep it iPod Touch styled.
