Uncovered iPad Split-Screen Multitasking for iOS 8 in Action [Video]

Posted by · 19007 views · Translate

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has followed up his previous report that iOS 8 Beta has hidden code for running apps side-by-side with a demo video!

UISimulatedApplicationResizeGestureEnabled (iOS 8 iPad split-screen multitasking debug) (video)

The code is demonstrated in iOS Simulator using a mouse, thus the awkward two-finger swipe gesture.

SpringBoard can run apps 1/4 size, 1/2 size, or 3/4 size. It's said that the feature isn't quite ready yet and that's why Apple didn't showcase it at WWDC.

Take a look at the video below and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

I'll wait until Apple has a product worth promoting. Right now, all they have is the mechanism for switching windows. There's a hell of a lot more work, and it's unlikely to be completed any time soon. That's the nice thing about Apple, instead of rushing half finished technology to market, they wait until they can get the technology to function properly. By the way, I wouldn't ask MS how to do anything with smartphones and tablets. After all, they are hardly a shinning example of success in this market!

It needs more development, ask microsoft how to do it.

I wouldn't be asking Microsoft for development advice. Almost every single product they develop is a flop or bleeds money from the start. It's the complete opposite of what apple is doing. I think apple can figure it out for themselves. They've done good so far.

Needs more iq, ask a developer how it's really done.

Now that a straight copy from windows and android. Poor Crapple, just trying to copy each and everything to survive.
