    Does anyone know if there is an alternative to Quasar for iOS 7? I would love to have a tweak to allow me to split screens.

    Evan Swick is very close to releasing an alternative to Quasar. Should be out in the next couple of weeks.

    The tweak is called: OS Experience.

    I think OS Experience would be better if they had a snap like feature in changing windows. Such as not freely changing the windows, but similar to the Note an app would snap to any open app.

    I don't mind the price of 9.99. It's an awesome tweak, just the implementation as far as interacting with the apps could be better. I'll still will be purchasing it when it comes out nonetheless.

    That video is very impressive, and I'll probably buy it to reward the developer's efforts.

    That being said, I wouldn't get any use out of until they do two things:

    1) Remove the black border around iPhone mode apps in windowed mode

    2) Enable landscape orientation of windowed apps when the iPad is in portrait mode, and vice versa (portrait apps, while in landscape mode)

    This would allow one to have two apps nicely side by side in various scenarios, and could be very helpful in some multitasking situations. Especially on full size iPads.

    2. Is already done.

    I am quite disappointed in that hands on preview tbh, he didn't show fully what the tweak was capable of.

    Here is a quote from the developer himself on the landscape while in portrait;
    And picture evidence;

    Neither would I mind the $10. After all, I paid the same for Quasar. I'm willing to support top JB devs.

    Same here.

    Quasar was kinda buggy, but I enjoyed the fact of having multiple windows. I remember always having 4 windows open.

    But this is Quasar 2.0 due to not only having the ability to use multiple windows they can have multiple springboards.

    I already have ProWidgets, VideoPane & Miniplayer for the iPad. Now, with this upcoming tweak. I don't know what to think anymore :)

    Can this tweak do a simple split screen with no text size reduction? Simply just 2 pane like the Samsung Tablet?

    You will be able to rotate 2 apps into portrait while the device is landscape, yes.

    Whether or not the text is reduce or the positioning can be dead on like that I won't know till it's out. It should hopefully be pretty close, certainly a lot closer than we are now :cool:

    My worry is there isn't currently a way to hide the window's 'top bar' when it's windowed, but anyway...will just have to see, shouldn't be too long now :eek:

    Cool, iOS6 will also be supported (my iPad2's still on iOS6 to support my development).

    Same here. I always check out the new release section in my Cydia client to see if it's already released - at least twice a day.. Hope he releases it ASAP.

    He said in the next week or two last week.

    Latest I've heard on release was when asked about it coming out this week;
    So realistically I would think it's probably coming sometime next week, guess it will depend on the bugs.

    I've lately (in the last about half a year) only posted my reviews to here, in this very forum, not to my generic blog. (Generally, the latter requires a lot more time - English proofreading and such -, which I don't currently have.)
