New Multitasking with windows on iOS!

Marcus over at Brazilian site Music Apps has news of a great new jailbreak app! Quasar, $10 on Cydia, allows for apps to be windowed. You can resize them with ease and have apps sitting next to each other! Check out this demo video, that has GeoSynth controlling iMS-20 via MIDI Bridge, while simultaneously playing Animoog.

Perhaps most impressive is the fact that he's doing all of that on an old iPad 1! Google Translate does a poor job of Portuguese to English, so I don't want to try speculating too much on what all is said. Here is the full article.

This lookslike it works amazingly well. I was pretty skeptical before, but now I want it. Too bad I'm on the new JB-less iPad.

Yea I bet this has got quite a few people anxiously awaiting a new jailbreak; nearly as much as I am!

Thanks for posting my video! :)

I had to try it on the iPad 1 because it was my only device not updated to iOS 5.1. But it was a nice test. The performance is not bad but with the iPad 2 or the new iPad I think it would be much faster and more stable, mainly because of the RAM memory. The iPad 1 suffers while opening more than 2 apps at the same time.

The most impressive thing about Quasar is how it changes the way iOS deals with multitasking. For the first time I had the experience of playing with GarageBand and iMS -20 being controlled by another iOS music app like Geo Synthesizer.
