OmniSnitch Makes OmniROM’s OmniSwitch Available to All

A couple of days ago, we talked about a new OmniROMs feature called OmniSwitch. For those who don’t remember, it is an app switcher created by XDA Senior Member maxwen that also offers quite a few customization options like adding favorites or killing running processes by swiping. OmniSwitch can be found in the newest OmniROM nightlies and used on every supported device.

One disadvantage of OmniSwitch for users not running OmniROM is that it’s distributed only with OmniROM, and doesn’t work on anything except KitKat. These compatibility problems were solved by XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat, who managed to backport OmniSwitch to Ice Cream Sandwich and newer versions of Android. The features of OmniSnitch and OmniSwitch are essentially the same. In both applications, you are able to change your running process, display your current RAM usage, and define favorites. The only broken feature in OmniSnitch is the missing option to kill the running process by swiping or using action buttons. However, one possible workaround for this bug is building OmniSnitch alongside your ROM.

More information can be found in the application thread. If you are on Ice Cream Sandwich or Jellybean and want a small taste of the Omni goodness, you should definitely give this a shot.
