Dashboard iPad App Rejected by Apple Now Open Source

Posted on April 9, 2010 by

I’m sure Dashboard will eventually become native to the iPad OS, but hopefully it will be available for jailbroken iPads soon so we don’t have to wait much longer.

From Engadget:

So you spend hours and hours toiling away on an app that adds some much-needed Dashboard-like functionality to the iPad (sort of, more on that later) only to have it rejected by Apple — what do you do? If you’re Hongrich, developer of the slightly problematically-named “Dashboard” app, you make it open source. Of course, you’ll have to be a developer yourself to actually try out the app, and it’s not exactly the full-fledged Dashboard that many have been hoping for, but rather a standalone app that simply lets you run and arrange widgets however you like. Still, it’s definitely a start. Head on past the break for a demo video, and hit up the source link to download it yourself.
