A Simple and Easy-To-Use Application that Enables You to Quickly and Easily Access and Use Various Web Apps from Withing an I Pad-Like Interface
iPadian is a simple and user-friendly Mac OS X application specially designed to bring the look and feel of the iPad interface to your Mac.
Browse the web, watch videos and play games from within a single app
From iPadian’s main window you can easily browse through your collection of applications, check your Facebook account, launch games, watch YouTube videos and more. Every pre-installed app takes you to a webpage/web app that offers similar features to the real thing.
Consequently, you can edit photos, read eBooks, listen to music, check the weather, visit your Twitter page, read the news, play games and more. Thanks to the built-in Notification and Messages system you can view the latest Facebook posts, chat with your friends and stay updated.
Discover new applications and improve your web browsing experience
What is more, iPadian features its own custom applications store that helps you install new web apps and expand your collection of handy apps and utilities. You can run multiple apps at the same time and use the multi-task feature to switch between them with ease.
Change the background picture and restrict the access using a custom username and password
As expected, the Dashboard helps you find and launch the desired app and access the “Setting” menu. By accessing the “Setting” menu, you can set a custom username and password and change the background with one of the provided images or a picture from the web.
iPadian proved to be responsive and easy-to-use when running from Mac OS X 10.6.8 but constantly crashed and failed to launch any of the pre-installed apps when launched from a Mac running OS X 10.9.2. On top of that, iPadian is no longer maintained and, as a result, you will end up with a lot of dead web apps.
It is worth mentioning that none of the featured apps look anywhere close to the iOS applications available in the App Store. Also, iPadian is not able to run in window mode and it will use your entire screen space when used.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used iPadian for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
