Panes brings multi-tasking and widgets to the iPad. The app displays up to three columns (panes), each containing one or two widgets. The widgets are rich and varied, from a full Twitter client to a web browser. Using Panes you can follow Twitter and Facebook side-by-side with yet another widget alongside them both. The widgets include an RSS reader, Google Reader, calculator, and calendar app just to name a few. The Panes can be closed as desired with a simple swipe, allowing any one or two apps to take the full screen.
Those familiar with the app Glimpse for the HP TouchPad will recognize Panes, as it is a direct port to the iPad, bringing widgets and multiple windows to iOS.
Panes is in beta and not yet available, but should be in the App Store soon. It is a very useful app and already one of the apps I use the most on my iPad.
