Tonight while looking at the app store to see if there has been a Googlewave app for the iPad released I came across an app called G-Whizz ( http://www.gwhizzapp.com ). G-Whizz doesn’t solve my Googlewave iPad problems but it does solve another one. It prevents auto refreshing a Google sites when opening new windows between other Google sites.
G-Whizz also provides a clean list of all of the Google services to switch between along with the ability to customize quick access icons locations. Besides the multitasking feature G-Whizz is very much like the official Google iPad and it unlike Google’s free app G-Whizz cost $2.99.
