Quasar, a new tweak just released in Cydia, is a multi-tasking window manager for the iPad.

Quasar is (the very first) window manager for iPad! Now you can run apps in windows, on your iPad! Simply open any application and it will be opened in a window, just like in your computer. Quasar is integrated to iOS's default app switcher (double pressing home button). Killing an application in app switcher (or holding the close button) kills its window and the application itself, but if you only click the close button, the window is closed but the application keeps running in background (in the app switcher).

It is integrated too with notification center and with Safari/App Store/YouTube/links that opens other apps. iPhone applications are optimized to run in the right resolution in Quasar.


You can purchase Quasar from the Cydia Store for $9.99. Take a look at the video below to see the tweak in action.

I downloaded the update just now and I think Pedro fixed most of the issues I described earlier, especially the squashing (he calls it stretching) of windows in Landscape mode. Still some glitches with scrolling with some apps though. Really nice to have windows and to this end I'm very happy I have an iPad and not an Android tablet!

Yeah, I installed and ran it, but it ended up hanging my system, so I had to shut down the device and uninstall it. Not worth bothering with. It's a nice idea, but the implementation is bad, since it puts in another level before you can quit an application, making starting and stopping any app much more difficult. I'd avoid it if I were you.

There is a dependency on gsc.ipad. How Can I get this?
