When companies wheel out their financial results it usually means heads in hands in utter sorrow at the losses made, or jumps for joy as you make profit.

At some point, you have to check all the boxes check by your rivals. Windows 8 tablets have split screens in some capacity, and so do Samsung's Galaxy Tab series. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before Apple embraced the idea and built iOS 8 to have it's own 2-for-1 screen. The difference is Apple's still very much in beta and working to turn that work-in-progress into a finished product.
Users of the iOS 8 developer edition have discovered that there exists code in Springboard that references two apps running side-by-side. The codes also show the ability to adjust the amount of space each window takes up, enabling a 50-50 split or 75-25 share. It will be a big boost to multitasking and a worthwhile solution for people who want to accomplish tasks or discover information without having to jump back and forth between windows. As someone who loves Multi-Window on the Galaxy Tab but also uses an iPad Mini, I'd be very happy not to have to give up one of the best tablet features when switching from one platform to the other.
According to sources from a few connected bloggers, Apple removed multitasking from the beta because it was too buggy. That's a recurring theme in recent days, but one that doesn't make us any less enthused about the prospect of getting split screens. We may have that wish granted come September.

A low key developer conference is accepted for most companies, but not for Apple, with WWDC likely to have analysts predicting doom and gloom for the brand. However, this event is not about product, but software, so with iOS 8 now out in the wild, you may be wondering if it will be coming to your Apple device. Read More »
