    I recently have been seeing it in the news. I have an A5 processor in my mini and was wondering if it would be worth trying on older hardware. Has anyone here tried it out on an older iPad? I'm also curious as to how the keyboard works with multiple apps. In one video I've seen the keyboard was restrained to each application when snapped or windowed instead of spanning the entire screen. I think this might be annoying because I usually type with two thumbs on a fully spanned keyboard. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I definitely appreciate any input.

    Definitely an awesome tweak.

    I have an iPad Air... my sister has an Mini but I refrain from putting OSE on it because of potential freezing due to lack of memory. It all depends on scenarios with the tweak. For older iPads I would only use it in spurts... when the situation depends on it. But it runs smoothly on my iPad Air.

    I currently have OSE, ProWidgets and VideoPane... and it's a joy to use. But OSE takes about 70-75 mb.. that's without me using any apps. And the dev is planning on doing more with the tweak as far what you mention using a full size keyboard with any mini-size window'd app. Not sure how he plan on implementing the tweak, but it would be awesome. Also, he has plans on having the ability to open up in mini-size instead of the traditional full-size.

    I'd say it's worth it.. but that's my opinion. It will be fine on iPad 2's or 1st gen iPad Mini's... I'd just recommend don't use it heavily.

    Works just fine on my A5-based iPad 3.

    But the iPad 3 has 1 gig of RAM. I'm referring to 512 mb of ram on the 2nd gen iPad & 1st gen iPad Mini.

    But I was wondering do you have a Mac and use Safari as your primarily browser. I believe the tweak conflicts with iCloud Tabs. I disable the tweak and iCloud Tabs refreshes, but only when I enable to tweak it causes it to not refresh the tabs.

    I appreciate all the input! I'll go ahead and wait until I can see if anyone responds with the lower allocation of memory like on my device before I go through with that kind of purchase. I think it would kind of suck to spend 10 bucks on it only to find out that it won't work well. The idea of multitasking is great though. I think if the keyboard were fixed to span the device I would just go for it anyways. It's really hard for me to think of going back to one finger to type as I used to when I first started using my iPad. Ideally I'd like to run something like Hangouts for chat side by side with a browser or Spotify, so more Keyboard intensive. I don't use Bluetooth keyboards.
