Apple "I've been developing a new tweak for iPads called Quasar. Quasar is a tweak that allows you to run your apps in windows in your iPad. Just like in a window-based operating system, you can resize, move, close or full-screen windows." This is really, really cool - and quite useful, too, especially for iPhone-only applications. It's in the Cydia Store for $9.99.

If Apple don't already have a prototype of this running in their own labs, then they will be screwed when all the other tablet manufacturers implement it! ;)

Why would they? This looks a horrible kludge.

As much as I don't like Metro, the multi-window method used on there is better suited for tablets than this hack to create desktop-style cascading windows.

I'm all for 3rd party tweaks for iOS to extend it's functionality, but on this occasion I think Apple's "less is more" approach is better.
