Thread: Jailbreak Tweak Allows Multiple Running iPhone Apps on iPad

  1. #1
    Default Jailbreak Tweak Allows Multiple Running iPhone Apps on iPad


    A recent blog post by Aaron Ash (@aaronash) gives us a small look into what he was been working on. Under the alias "Polyonix", Aaron has been working on a tweak exclusively for the iPad that allows multiple iPhone application windows to run at the same time. This can come in handy for whatever applications you use.

    The tweak itself is in its early stages but has a ton of potential. Having talked with Aaron directly, he has many more upcoming implementations. From the picture above, one can notice a few of the features he mentions in his blog post:

    • The edit mode in the bottom right will allow you to re-arrange windows on the screen and even rotate the windows (portrait / landscape)
    • The Close Polyonix button is assumably for closing the overlay with the windows.


    There is no planned ETA or any other information that was is given in Aaron's blog post. His blog post can be viewed here:

    For those of you who may be attending the jailbreak meet-up in New York, Aaron said he may allow some people to give it a test.



    I had the opportunity, while chatting with Aaron Ash, to ask him a few questions about his tweak known as "Polyonix":

    JOSH: How'd you come up with this idea?
    AARON: The idea has been floating around for a while. I'd been wanting to work on but I've had very little time available to work on it. I've found some time to hack on it a lot more recently and I've made some good progress.

    JOSH: How long have you been working on this project?
    AARON: My first git commit was on April 9th this year.

    JOSH: Do you have any implementations that you're looking to try to incorporate?
    AARON: The exact details of implementation are up in the air still.

    Follow Aaron Ash (@aaronash) on Twitter for more information about his upcoming iPad tweak "Polyonix" and his other projects.

    This could be really nice on an iPad; not sure I want to try to manage multiple windows on my iPhone ....

    When the JB for the iPad 2 releases, I'm sure Aaron will get it ready for it also.

    Depends. It could potentially work on the iPhone depending on how you resize/design it.

    I know the first thing I would do is play two games of Angry birds at the same time

    I am very interested in this. It would be nice to have the ability for two people to enjoy their own app at the same time as another. There will have to be a way to flip display to correct orientation for the user. nice work man

    P.S if unclear, i mean, from your first pic, spin the top angry birds by 180 so both users have straight on view...

    This is so cool! I wish I still had my iPad...

    It would be really coool if he could make it!
    Not only for iPad, but for iPhone/iTouch aswell

    Good luck creator if you're reading this

    Aaron just used the rotation example in general, not necessarily with Angry Birds.

    Really nice, just hope the jailbreak for iPad 2 is out when this is released. My guess is we won't see iPad 2 jailbreak until after the next iPhone is released.

    Did you read it? Do understand what it does?
    Its an iPad app NOT an iPhone app so you will never see it on the iPhone.

    that's cool. you can facetime and play a game at the same time. imagine playing scrabble with a few friends while face chatting.

    seems like an awesome tweak, i think the crash he was referring to in his blog was most likely related to little ram running on the 1st gen ipad.im sure it will run like very well on the ipad 2, of course when there is a jailbreak. Very creative idea though, definitely(for me at least) a must buy. Just to show off ya know and get some true multitasking Even if it is just angry birds.

    Lol if I had the money I would bet you on that, alot of things can be used or made to use on both iPhone and iPad devices with a few changes and alterations, so don't ever say never, you may be proved wrong
