Needs work

:
Individual applets can use some redesign for user friendliness. Weather app is simply a list of temps for times and dates - hard to read at a glance and doesn't provide much useful information. World clock displays a long list of cities with no way to remove them and shows the wrong flag for Taipei (Mainland China's flag instead of the ROC flag). Currency converter shows every currency so I have to hunt through a long list. Basically the applets show too much information, which obscures the the information I am actually looking for. Giving it three stars because even though the design needs work, the quality is high (ie I haven't found any defects).

Useless for me without being able to open my own apps

:
In the author's defense, it is my mistake that I didn't read the description better, but I assumed I would be able to run any app on my iPad, not just a select few.

For example, I play a word game that uses a lot of words I'm not familiar with. I was hoping I could have the game and a dictionary up at the same time, but I can't do this.

I'm not going to give a poor rating because the app didn't claim to do this, but I misjudged its purpose and it really isn't useful for me as it stands.

2/5 stars

Can't use your own apps :(

:
You're stuck using their applications rather than your own... i.e you use their web browser (no bookmarks), you're stuck using their email app not the default email app so you can't read your own emails. Would be much better if you could choose the apps you wanted to multi task with.
