View multiple windows on your iPad with Quasar jailbreak tweak [Updated]
A new jailbreak tweak called Quasar will let you have multiple apps open and running at the same time. If you've always yearned for the opportunity to have your iPad work more like a desktop OS like Windows or OS X, Quasar could be just what you've been looking for.
Quasar is a version 1.0 jailbreak app and to be fair you can tell. It crashed the springboard a few times when I was playing with it and froze a couple of times too. There are weird rotations and portrait bugs as seen in the video are quite annoying too. Having said that, this could potentially be a game changer as and when it's quirks have been ironed out.
Quasar is available through Cydia for $9.99 and is for the iPad only running iOS 5 or higher.
Update The developer has already released an update and fixed some of the bugs that we experienced in the demo video. The orientation and rotation bugs are now fixed along with a few other things too. Good to see such speedy bug fixes!

What would be interesting is if these guys can make it so the tweak allows you to pin apps like widgets to different home screens. Then just toss in GridLock to position app icons where I want them, and then place apps like tweet bot and others around the screen. What would be even cooler is if it could force Universal apps to run as the iPhone version when window, then launch the iPad version when taking it full screen.
