    This is an application that has several widget-like applications in it such as a browser, calculator and translator.

    It is well laid out and the widgets are movable so you can arrange them like actual windows on a computer. This the interface is clean but I do think that the closing box should be changed to look more like a Mac or Windows one.

    The included utilities are: a web browser, a dictionary, a unit convertor, a translator, a calculator, currency exchange rates, maps, an e-mail writer (which I'm guessing will export it to the mail app or send it from with in Desktop), a weather widget (only works in US) and information about your device such as hard drive space taken and also what memory you are using.

    I agree in some ways as the black and white "x's" and "+/-" looks a bit tacky. But they will probably change that in the future.

    Just had word that this has been pulled from the AppSotre because APPARENTLY Apple may implement this type of multi-tasking in their next major OS update.

    That looks pretty cool, sounds like a few companies are trying to make multi-tasking possible with the use of one app haha.
