    Hot Tip Multitasking App for iPad


    from App Advice by Alexander Vaughn
    [​IMG]
    As we’ve told you before, Apple decided not to allow Dashboard apps on its iPad App Store shortly before the launch, apparently for “contradicting the iPad’s user experience”.​
    While one developer gave up and published his work’s code, iPad developer Aqua Eagle found on the other hand a middle ground with Apple and his app, Desktop, is now back on the Store with a redesigned interface that replaced widgets by panels.​
    In short, it will still allow you to display and interact with two functions at a time by splitting the screen either vertically or horizontally. Very convenient if you’re writing an email for example and you’re looking to throw a couple links in there without having to leave the app.​
    Alright, it won’t let you do absolutely anything you want, but there are already a couple nice features:​

    • Web Browser (featuring Visual Bookmarks)
    • English Dictionary (powered by Wiktionary)
    • Calculator
    • Language Translator (46 languages)
    • Currency Converter (60+ currencies)
    • Maps (with Geolocation)
    • Email Composer
    • US Weather (location-enabled)
    • Unit Converter (with +100 units)
    • Device Stats (Memory and Disk)
    With some more to come.
    Desktop is available on the App Store now, on sale for $0.99

    I just came across that app and downloaded it, to give it a try.
    My iPad finally made it through customs, so I can give you more real life updates tomorrow.

    Looks cool I downloaded it along with a bunch of others. In about 9 days I'll find out how it works. One thing why do I need to be 17 or older to download it? Bizarre! Thanks for the tip:)

    They worry that you may be surfing porn while writing an email?
