Running 3 iPhone Apps Side-By-Side On Your iPad? There’s An (Unauthorized) App For That!

Ever wanted to run 3 iPhone apps side-by-side on your iPad? Ok, me neither – but that hasn’t stopped some crazy jailbreak developer from making it happen! Read on!

Jailbreak app developer Aaron Ash is behind this project, which he says is, at the moment, mostly just a proof-of-concept that isn’t ready for widespread release. If finished and optimized, the app could enable a new form of multitasking – actually running multiple iPhone apps side by side.

While it is a bit interesting (especially for playing 2 games on Angry Birds at once!), I can’t help but think that it’s just not that useful. A strong aspect of the iPad experience is that it isolates you into one app at a time, minimizing distractions and helping to keep you focused on what is on your screen. If you want to multitask in this manner, why wouldn’t use just use a full-fledged computer?

Right now, the tweak maxes out at three apps, and automatically crashes when you try to launch a fourth. It also has numerous issues with the sound and accelerometer, and the developer is forecasting that it will take a few months to finish.

What are your thoughts? As always, sound off in the comments!

    I think using angry birds a proof is kinda dumb. I think this app could be very useful for business applications. Having Numbers, a money management app, and calculator all running side by side would be great for productivity.

  2. Andy Browne says:

    I agree with Drake. The ability to run two or more applications I would cater to business or school apps more than games.
