OS Experience is a new jailbreak utility available for iPad that not only offers multiple windows — a feature only rumored for iOS 8 — but adds multiple desktops in the same way Mission Control does on the Mac.
The iPad (and iOS) is currently a full-screen platform. That means you can only use and interact with one app at a time. Open Mail, you leave Safari. They can still run in the background but you can't see them. With OS Experience, you can have multiple apps — and more — all visible, all at once. It's much more like OS X than iOS.
If you use hot corners on the Mac, you can even enable these same kinds of behaviors on your iPad with OS Experience. Set a gesture and then view all the active windows you have.
Aside from multiple windows, OS Experience brings Mission Control to the iPad along with the ability for multiple desktops. Just like windows, create a gesture and then trigger it to see all your desktops and access them in just a tap. You can also hold down on desktops and tap the X in order to delete them.
While an app like OS Experience works great on the iPad, it probably wouldn't serve much purpose on a smaller device like an iPhone. If you happen to try out OS Experience, let me know in the comments how it's working for you and what you like about it the most. Anything you'd like to see the developer add in the near future?
