    Hi All,

    Ripping off the Palm Pre?????

    Here is copy of an ad for a program for the Ipad.

    Please see how they rip off the Palm Pre:

    ProSwitcher HD App for iPad, Screenshots for You!
    Gadgets DNA

    ProSwitcher is a palm pre like multitasking app lets you switch between applications running in background in a beautiful Palm Pre style cover flow-like mode. It is similar to MultiFl0w but is said to be much easier, faster, and more intuitive and uses very less memory.

    My comments on the ad:

    As I understand it the Ipad and Iphone are not capable of Multi tasking in the way the Pre does. The ad claims, they are running n the background.,..however doesn't the Pre actually have multiple programs running 100%, with none in the background????? (I know I read an comparison, of true multi tasking on the Pre and the Faux multi tasting on th Iphone/Ipad. However, it was weeks ago and I could not find it. (It was not on this site)). Therefore, if I have any of the facts wrong, please correct me!

    Take care,

    Jay

    the best thing for us (besides the link) is for the term "Palm Pre like" to be plastered all over the iPhone world and attributed to every possible innovation. Like the new wireless charging mat that snaps on the iphone... it is a huge and outdated way to add "Palm Pre like" wireless charging to the iPhone...

    This is a phrase that we need to propagate!

    ... now about that link???

    And yes, it will require jailbreaking.

    Here is the link, currently it is the 2nd item, down from the top! Read the ad's copy, it is a Pre Rip off plain and simple!

    ProSwitcher HD App for iPad Screenshots | Gadgets DNA

    Please let me know it the link works> Alsp, please let me know if I am correct, that the Pre has actual multi tasking, not things running in the background, a faux multi tasking of the Iphone and the Ipad.

    Take care, Jay

    Jay, the iPhone can multi-task just like the Pre once it's jailbroken (same thing as the rooting the Pre) and running backgrounder. The only reason the iPhone doesn't multi-task out of the box is because Apple prohibits it for 3rd party apps. Just like the Pre, programs on a jail broken iPhone continue to execute even when they don't have the focus on the device.

    That said, Proswitcher looks pretty clunky on an iPad. There's so much screen real estate available, it seems a waste to use the nearly-full-screen card metaphor the Pre uses.

    Hi,

    I care, b/c instead of having a Pre like experience, they should just buy a Pre.

    Hi

    Thank you!!! However, won't Apple and AT&T have a cow, if they found out you have jailbroken the IPad??

    Not any more than Verizon will with a homebrewed Pre. I'm not sure how Sprint responds if you try to return a homebrewed Pre. Otherwise, unless you bring a modded phone into a store for service on it, there's no other way for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint to know you've modded their OS. It's the same for Blackberries, WM, and Android devices with cooked ROMs.

    Hi, I assume you can wipe of the Pre's memory before you return it. Take care, Jay
