Pedro Franceschi’s Quasar jailbreak adds window app management to the iPad, which allows a user to operate and view multiple apps by entering and exiting full screen, resizing, changing orientation, and rearranging them simultaneously.
The above video demonstrates the tweak, and it should surely entice those whom are sick of double-tapping the iPad’s home button to switch between a dozen open apps. It also looks enticing for iPhone-optimized apps on the iPad that lack a tablet counterpart. However, it may seem useless for a slew of apps that require full screen usage.
The jailbreak is available for, well, jailbroken iPads only (obviously excluding iOS 5.1). The Cydia Store has it for $9.99.
Any chance Apple does something like this for iOS 6?
