Jailbreakers may soon be able to run side-by-side apps on iPad
Now this is what we call true multitasking: side-by-side apps on the same screen. No background apps or freeze states or other slights of hand, just straight up multitasking. That's what developer Aaron is striving for on jailbroken iPads.
This could be a great solution for watching video while browsing the web, or answering e-mails. Or, playing two games of Angry Birds at once as is in the image. There are certainly a number of uses for running multiple apps on the same screen at once, so this is an exciting development. We'll keep an eye out for any more news. It should be interesting to see if this hits the Cydia app store first, or if Onskreen can release Cornerstone in the Android Market to bring similar functionality to Honeycomb tablets.
