Apple to bring split-screen multitasking to iPad with iOS 8

Apple to bring split-screen multitasking to iPad with iOS 8 | Digital Lifestyle Technologies | Scoop.it

Apple's next-generation mobile operating system may give iPad users the ability to run -- and view -- two applications at the same time, thanks to new multi-app split screen support, according to a new rumor.

François-Xavier Schaeffer's insight:

Apple may finally be bringing legitimate multitasking to the iPad. For years, iOS has allowed only one app to be displayed on screen at any given time. It's time for a change!

Nicoletta Gay's curator insight, April 9, 3:44 AM

Twitter is a social networking tool meant to be used for conversation, rather than press releases and calls to action. There is a place for that stuff, but it’s not the whole point. Use Twitter to get to know others and share content that you genuinely enjoy and think your followers will enjoy too.

Columbia University students create software allowing native iOS apps to run on Android devices

Columbia University students create software allowing native iOS apps to run on Android devices | Digital Lifestyle Technologies | Scoop.it

For some time now, iOS users have cited the quality and quantity of third-party software available for the platform as an important factor in their choice of mobile devices. Over the years Android has amassed its own collection of apps and users have continued butting heads over which system had the better selection.

Six Columbia University students have bridged the gap between the two platforms with something called Cider.

François-Xavier Schaeffer's insight:

It’s useless unless you steal the applications from iOS which is kind of illegal. These guys will probably tell you that it’s just a project for them and they don’t advocate the stealing part, but in reality, these guys have just enabled theft on a large scale!
