    Glimpse for HP TouchPad: Multi-tasking within a single app
    By James Kendrick | July 15, 2011, 7:02am PDT

    Glimpse for HP TouchPad: Multi-tasking within a single app | ZDNet

    The HP TouchPad has only been out for a couple of weeks but useful apps are already appearing for the tablet. The webOS platform is great at multi-tasking, and a new app takes that to a whole new level. Glimpse for the TouchPad brings the ability to run multiple tasks within a single app, and I am only just discovering the many uses that brings.

    Glimpse allows running up to three tasks at the same time, each residing in a pane on the display. There is one big pane on the right, and up to two smaller panes on the left. The panes can be turned on and off with a simple check box that is always accessible.

    I bought Glimpse last night . . . I believe its an awesome app that displays WebOSs capability to do a lot of things . . . and from the info the developer has put out so far, its gonna get even better. I'm happy to support our developers for quality app's . . . the price of this app is worth it !

    I dl'd Glimpse today. It is great. I love the multitasking in app.

    I have noticed a bug and was curious if anyone else came up with similar results.

    I unchecked twitter and tasks. Closed the app. Reopened it later and re-checked them. Now I have 5 copies of twitter in the options list and two copies of tasks.

    Bought this, little bit pricey but would highly recommend. The twitter module on it's own is great.

    Hopefully new modules will either be free or inexpensive.

    Great app.

    Would love to get all my bookmarks synced with the ones I currently have on the TouchPad standard browser and not have to recreate them if possible ?

    Thanks

    I think he will start adding other devs' apps to the module. So in a way its free but you will have to pay for the by itself and then load into glimpse. Which is really nice cuz ure glimpse will be personalized =]

    So do you think you can implant an idea, for instance "be smoother so people will love you more", by opening Glimpse, opening an instance of Glimpse within Glimpse, and opening an instance of Glimpse within the instance of Glimpse you're running within Glimpse? And writing that into a word editor? (Suppose it CAN'T be done after all, at least not yet...)

    Do you think we could get Leo DiCaprio to do a TouchPad commercial?

    Haha. I once tried to run Glimpse in Glimpse, and my Touchpad almost exploded

    Awesome app. Bookmark syncing would be a great enhancement. Any way to provide a preference to reduce the font size in the widgets?

    If it's cheap, more people will download it, increasing the number of people to sell widgets too.

    Has anyone had problems with checking and unchecking options?

    I unchecked twitter and tasks, then went back in later and rechecked them.

    I now have four twitters, and two tasks listed in the option list.

    I tried doing was you said. I was unable to reproduce it. What else did you do? Are some widgets now missing from the list?

    I opened the app, changed where some of the widgets where. opened the preferences and unchecked twitter and tasks. Closed the app for awhile. Then later during the day, I reopened the app and rechecked the widgets.

    After closing the preferences and re-entering the app I have this happening. It has not gone away.

    I love this app! I wonder if when more 3rd party apps are added if you'll be able to have multiple cards of glimpse running?

    I don't have the TouchPad yet, waiting for 3G/4G, but I have watched the video. At your current price, people would be crazy not to buy it, IMHO.
