Source: iPad Dashboard

Here’s your daily dose of niftiness; this clever spark created an iPad version of Dashboard.

Inspired by Apple’s Dashboard application for Mac, Dashboard for iPad has been completely rewritten for iPad. It brings the ability of running multiple mini-applications, widgets, to all iPad users. With access to any of the existing Dashboard widgets for Mac available to download right within this application, you can quickly add several fun and functional widgets to your Dashboard.

Yep, that’s pretty cool alright:

Sounds like something you’d find handy, yeah? Well, not in the opinion of Apple. Boo, hiss.

Alas, Cupertino has now rejected the app for “contradicting the iPad’s user experience”, whatever that means…

Cha. Yes, sometimes they are genuinely annoying, aren’t they. But hey, at least you can run it yourself if you like, since the author has been kind enough to opensource it on GitHub!
