His Dashboard App For iPad Rejected, Developer Publishes Code On GitHub

When developer Rich Hong published a sneak preview video of his home-made Dashboard app for iPad, plenty of commentators deemed it cool and a potentially very useful addition to the tablet device’s software stack.

Alas, Cupertino has now rejected the app for “contradicting the iPad’s user experience”, whatever that means (I guess Apple doesn’t want even a hint of multi-tasking on the iPad until they decide to add support for it). Hong has swiftly made the code for the app open source on GitHub, enabling other developers to compile it for themselves and/or their social circle.

I bet it’d look great on a jailbroken iPad, too.
