iOS 8 to Reportedly Bring Split-Screen Multitasking to the iPad

Posted May 13, 2014 at 2:55pm by iClarified
iOS 8 could likely bring split-screen multitasking to the iPad, according to a new report from 9to5mac.

Split-screen multitasking would let iPad users run two apps at the simultaneously, side by side in landscape mode -- a feature that Microsoft often criticizes the iPad for lacking. Sources also claim that the feature is designed to allow for apps to interact with each other. For instance, a user can drag content (text, video, images) from one app to another.

Apple is said to be developing capabilities for developers to be able to design their apps to interact with each other. This functionality may mean that Apple is finally ready to enable “XPC” support in iOS, which means that developers could design App Store apps that could share content.
Currently the feature exclusively works in landscape mode, and has been designed for the 9.7-inch iPad displays. It is unclear if the multitasking feature would come to the smaller-screened iPad Minis. Split-screen multitasking would also work well with the rumored 12-inch iPad Pro.

About this fukran. Lee transformed Samsung from a manufacturer of low quality knock-offs into one of the world's leading manufacturers of everything from smartphones to ships. Apple has accused the company of copying its devices but still relies on it to manufacture various components of its mobile devices. Fortune notes that Lee is also famous for his criminal record. Here are a few highlights they compiled: ● In 1996, Chairman Lee was one of nine South Korean businessmen charged and convicted of bribing former President Roh Tae Woo. Lee said the money was a gift. Four of the businessmen were sent to prison. Lee received a suspended sentence and, later, a presidential pardon. ● In a second high-profile case in 2008, Lee was cleared of bribery charges but convicted of tax evasion and financial wrongdoing. He was fined 110 billion won (nearly $100 million) and given a 3-year suspended jail term. A few months later he got his second presidential pardon. ● In 2010 Samsung's former chief legal counsel published a book called Think Samsung that claimed Lee stole up to 10 trillion won ($8.9 billion) from Samsung subsidiaries, destroyed evidence, and bribed government officials to ensure the smooth transfer of power to his son.

Might be late to the game but at least it will work right and not be laggy like Samsung and Microsoft's versions. Apple takes their time to get it right.

I've used multitasking on several Samsung products and have never experienced any lag. Thanks for the biased misinformation.
