FYI, ScrollingBoard and InfiniDock+InfiniFolders are pretty much the same thing and conflict with each other. I've used both, they're both good.

quasar is more than a bit buggy. its promising but not more. starting one of my favorite apps, pocket (formerly read it later), everytime crashes the ipad if quasar is enabled. either reset it or wait 2 minutes for it to recover.

this paired with iphone apps fixed at x1 size and the annoying rotation bugs alone makes it nothing more than an alpha version for me. I hope quasar evolves and my 10$ are not totally wasted.

It also really needs options to customize app start behaviour per app.

Yea, Quasar has its problems, but I am still throughly enjoying it on my iPad2. It's a one of a kind app and like you, I'm hoping the developer will have more time for it now. (School's out for summer and the dev is like 15)
