    Wouldnt be neat if Apple does an iOS upgrade to allow users to open 2 apps simultaneously side-by-side? I would definitely find a use for having 2 screens opened at the same time. For example, having Safari opened as well as Pages at the same time!

    I would love this feature! I find myself constantly having to switch between multiple apps when doing quick research for an essay.

    Android's Note has this feature and it's awesome. Hope Apple input this soon for the iPad.

    I really can't wait for this feature to be added in iOS 7 or 8 updates in the future :cool:

    I think the screens too small to have two apps open at the same time and be really useful. If I need to access safari and pages at the same time I find using a 4 finger swipe sideways to switch between the apps is a pretty fast way to do it.

    I've enjoyed Quasar immensly, just the ability to watch hulu while surfing is great. The Retina screen really helps with the scaled down type. On a side note, when the ipad first came out I thought that we would be able to run more than one Phone app on the same screen instead of having the single ohone app centered.

    It's a fantastic app, it does cost £10 or $10 for you US boys ;)

    But for what I want it to do, it's worth every penny :D

    I bought it early on and IRC it was around $5. I have gotten the asking price's worth of enjoyment out of it.

    What an ugly OS. Why would it need to have duplicate notification bars?

    On the retina iPads, I don't think this would be an issue. Things would get smaller, but they wouldn't really lose significant resolution.

    They retina display would prevent things from loosing clarity but things would still loose resolution as they got smaller.

    You're right. That's what I was attempting to convey, but I worded it poorly.
