Quasar Jailbreak Window Manager for iPad

Quasar is a new jailbreak tweak – by Pedro Franceschi – that lets you run apps in windows on the iPad. It’s a window manager tweak that appears to offer something much more like real multitasking on the iPad.

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.

There’s a video demo of the tweak (which I could not get to embed properly) which looks quite impressive.

Quasar is available now in the Cydia jailbreak app store, priced at $9.99.

It’s been a long while since anything left me even mildly tempted to jailbreak my iPad – and as good as this tweak looks, I’m still not there yet. Though I have to admit I’m thinking about possibly testing it on the iPad 2 that my wife uses.

If any of you have tried this out, please tell us what you think of it in the comments.

  1. Intesting idea – but the sexism implied by your wanting to test something on your wife’s iPad is outrageous.
