You may soon be able to run multiple iPhone apps on your iPad with a new jailbreak tweak [jailbreak]

A new jailbreak tweak may soon allow you to run multiple iPhone apps on screen at the same time -- on your iPad. iOS hacker Aaron Ash has written a tweak that will allow you to do just that.

Yes, and it actually works! I’ve wasted plenty of time already playing 2 games of Angry Birds at the same time. (I actually was playing 3 for a while, but it crashed when I tried to add a 4th). There are a few bugs, such as audio not working, and accelerometer events not getting sent to applications; it may take a while to sort these out.

Aaron plans on visiting a Jailbreak meet-up in New York later this month and may demonstrate it there. This tweak is very interesting, you could be watching a video in one window, playing a game in another and updating your twitter stream in the third. It looks like a very interesting tweak and one we hope will be available soon. Of course we are still waiting for the iPad 2 jailbreak!

What do you think? Would you find this a useful jailbreak app? Let us know!
