Glimpse view selectionGlimpse by Inglorious Apps is an app that bring multitasking to a whole new level on your TouchPad, literally allowing you to run multiple mini-apps (called "widgets") by splitting the screen into panes and letting you determine which widget you want to run in each frame. Once you select which widgets that you want to use in Glimpse, you then need to select how you want to set up the screen interface. You have up to 5 different frames that you can activate/deactivate, including the top-left, bottom-left, top-middle, bottom-middle and the large frame on the right. To customize your views, you need to swipe-down from the top-left within Glimpse and then expand the "Views" section. Within that dropdown, you have a few different options:

  • Top (Left), Bottom (Left), Right -- These are your basic views, allowing you to choose between the 2 small widgets on the left of the screen, and one large widget across the middle and right side of the screen.  Tap on each checkbox to toggle them on or off
  • Advanced -- Another set of checkboxes that allow you to add another column of one or two widgets in the middle of the screen
  • Presets -- These are some of the most common views that you can quickly select that will automatically adjust the frames on the screen. You can choose between such options as the Default (top left, bottom left, and right), 2 by 2 (a grid of 4 apps) or Power User (all 5 available frames). Note that if the view doesn't adjust correctly, you may need to restart the app)

Glimpse is available in the webOS App Catalog for $4.99 and is compatible with the HP TouchPad running webOS 3.0 or higher
