“First Blood: Apple Says No To iPad Multitasking – Pulls Dashboard Apps”

Indeed, we’re hearing rumors today that Apple has apparently decided not to tolerate the so called “dashboard apps” on the iPad. These apps, like Mini apps or Desktop, allowed you to execute multiple tasks on a same screen through a system of self-made widgets and sounded like a very nice workaround.

When I’d heard about those, my first thought had been that I couldn’t believe Apple would approve apps that essentially spat in the face of the iPad’s most essential paradigms.

Well, there you go.
