Designer Shares Interesting New iPad Multitasking Concept [VIDEO]

An interesting new iPad multitasking concept shared by Tommy Walton on Twitter appears so much simpler and more efficient than what we actually have available. As Daring Fireball’s John Gruber puts it, it’s “a deceptively simple iPad multitasking concept.”


Here’s what Gruber says about it:

  • It’s direct manipulation.
  • It’s consistent. The way you launch an app for the second spot on the screen is the same as the way you launch an app for the entire screen?—?you tap it. The way you close an app in split-screen is the same as the way you close it in single-screen?—?you swipe up from the bottom.
  • Everything is a one-finger tap or swipe?—?no complex multi-finger gestures.

Check out the concept in action below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
