Gmail on iPad Will Finally Allow Users To Multitask With The Split-View Feature

Technology has proved to be of significant help in enabling users to multitask and get a lot done at once. Google’s latest update for Gmail on iPad will finally support Split-Screen mode, allowing you to keep the Gmail pane functioning on one side of the screen and simultaneously keep other apps active on the other side of the screen. You no longer have to open a full screen to scan through your mails or send a quick reply in between doing something else on your iPad. The feature will work with iOS apps that support split-view multitasking.

Google introduced the feature saying, “When using an iPad, you’re now able to multitask with Gmail and other iOS applications. You can use Gmail and Google Calendar at the same time with Split View to check your schedule before replying to an email to confirm a meeting time. Or, you can easily drag and drop pictures from Google Photos into an email without leaving Gmail”. Read More

iPhone OS 4.0 Brings Multitasking to iPhone

This feature was awaited by every iPhone, iPod touch and even iPad user. Multitasking is now supported with iPhone OS 4.0. During the event, Apple Chief Executive, Steve Jobs mentioned seven tent pole features of iPhone OS 4.0, the very important being, Multitasking. Multitasking drains out the phones battery but who else other than Apple is out with a new way which would try to avoid those setbacks and present multitasking in a new and dynamic UI.

Run multiple Apps such as Mail, Plants vs Zombies , eBay and YouTube simultaneously. Now, if you need to jump from your Mail to Plants vs Zombies, you could double tap the home button and the apps would pop up from the bottom. You would view the icon of all those apps running. Tap on the desired app and you would simply jump to the app. Apple did not use the MultiFl0w interface and provides multitasking in an efficient manner.

You could now run Pandora while surfing the web via Safari. The music won’t stop playing and you could still use Safari. Continue your call on Skype while searching for great restaurants nearby or playing a game. Upload multiple pictures to Flickr and in the meantime play your favorite game.

iPhone OS 4.0 would currently be available as a developer version.
