jLauncher Reimagines iOS Multitasking

A new jailbreak tweak on the scene is called jLauncher and it dramatically reimagines what iOS multitasking can be. While the original iOS multitasking allows the user to quickly swap between programs, jLauncher adds a clock, music, sound, and brightness controls all to one page.

After downloading the program from Cydia, the user is able to assign an Activator action to jLauncher. This can be as easy as a double-press or triple-press of the home button, a swipe left on the status bar, or anything the user chooses.

Once opened, jLauncher occupies the screen. Open apps are displayed on the right, the clock at the top, and music, sound, and brightness controls beneath that. Very convenient.

However, as of now, it is not possible to enter “wiggly mode” from jLauncher. While this is a minor drawback, I would imagine it’s only a matter of time before the developer adds this feature.

jLauncher is available now in the Cydia Store for $1.99, via the BigBoss repository.

How Technology Will Create A Safer Healthcare System

It’s one of those great conundrums. Despite medicine being a highly intellectual field often at the cutting edge of science, we all too often remain near the bottom in terms of our information technology use. Maybe it’s the culture of medicine, a view that one should master everything and do everything despite knowing that this is an impossible goal? Maybe it’s lagging on the part of administration who may not understand the potential role of technology in the daily workflow of their physicians? Or maybe it’s just that we as a profession have never sat down and tried to understand what we’re missing, what we can do, and where we should go with the incorporation of informatics technology?

I choose to believe it is largely the last of these: that we as a profession have not yet began to put proper thought and action to purpose in terms of intelligently using technology to augment our abilities as clinicians. Continue reading
