WinPad - iPad Rainmeter Skin (Windows)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Are you looking for a desktop shortcut manager? Or would you just like a virtual ipad on your desktop?

WinPad is a rainmeter skin designed to look and feel like an iOS 6 iPad but runs entirely in RainMeter on Windows and includes some virtual apps and also launches Windows apps.

Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. 


WinPad is not a full working iPad replica and cannot run iOS apps. It is a customizable skin prototype designed to demonstrate the potential in the RainMeter framework, provide a fun desktop shortcut manager and I hope is a good basis for others to continue extending and developing this skin.
