    Clickbait title.

    This isn't even close to running Mac OS on an iPad, it's just running iOS apps in windows.

    A far more accurate title would be "iPad apps running in windows with a desktop."

    I got it running and added 2 more components. Safari View Controller and Media Player. I was going to add an app switcher, but my computer was basically on fire trying to run what I had already in the simulator :).

      It's just a tech demo of a windowing system. All windows are the same "app". Can't run different apps in windows.

      I'm not an iOS developer, but I can guess what this is. It's just an actual app. In apps you can use functions (probably called 'controllers', the placeholder texts are a giveaway) that represent objects like a webbrowser, a map and a navigational element. Traditionally these are all integral parts of an app. What this developer has done is isolate them in elements that resemble OSX-like windows that can be dragged around.

      So it's just a map controller, a web browser controller and a navigation controller.

      For example, if you click to open a URL in, say, the Twitter app, it will use the web browser controller to view the URL, but traditionally on iOS this is always full-screen. In this case, it's in a smaller window (that you can drag around).

    Is this an app used to demonstrate the idea or a complete jailbreak tweak that extends Springboard?
