DashPad allows you to use multiple widgets on the iPad in a multi-tasking environment. You can check the time, write a sticky note, search Google, calculate and look up a phone number in a dashboard environment. The program runs in Mobile Safari - in other words, you must be connected to the Internet to use DashPad.
Currently, the only widgets available are clock, calculator, calendar, google, convert, yellow pages and sticky note, and the cost is $9.99. Personally, I don't think the ability to use these particular widgets in a dashboard environment is worth $9.99. However, some of you might find it useful.
