Split-screen multitasking is coming to Apple's mobile platform in iOS 8. It wasn't demoed during WWDC earlier this month simply because it isn't ready, but it's there.

Hey look, they're innovating (read: stealing) again. Its not like I don't understand the move but I'm honor bound to point out Apple's ironies.

I'd file this one under 'common sense functionality' Although since Apple is often so late with features Android users have access to, sometimes it's a fine line between 'late' and 'stealing'.

You are correct. It is common sense functionality and practically should be stolen. And if Apple hadn't have sued so many times over common sense functionality, I wouldn't be honor bound to mention it.

This would be a great convenience. I wonder if this will lead to legal issues with Microsoft though... we don't see snapping side by side windows on OSX for this reason.

Which are in turn features that Windows user have access to. I can't believe the complete and willful ignorance of those, who refuse to acknowledge that both Apple and Samsung (not Android) have copied Windows 8.

I don't know about you, but I've been putting windows side by side since Windows 95. Hence the phrase 'common sense functionality.'

With an increasing trend toward comment like the above, it is easy to see why Apple are quaking in their boots and will be bought by Samsung for a bargain price within 8 years.

Thank goodness the HYPE is over.

this Apple = not good for you

Ha, I see what you did there... you took my line about using apps side by side for years and add 'tablet' to make my point not make any sense. Well played, sir.
