If you DO need the feature, buy the iPad.i mainly want it for the split screen multitasking but I can't think of a case where I'd use split screen multitasking on an iPad.
Can you afford it? Will owning the device make you happy?i mainly want it for the split screen multitasking but I can't think of a case where I'd use split screen multitasking on an iPad.
True. Unless you need to justify it to the wifey or something, then you'd need to come up with a reasonable excuse.Can you afford it? Will owning the device make you happy?
If the answer is yes to both of those then thats all the reason you need. That why I own an iPad. Very few people actually NEED an iPad and we could debate whether anyone actually NEEDS one at all.
There have been apps that allow that for awhile though.I'd say any answer we could give you is heavily dependent on what you actually use an iPad for. If it's primarily a consumption device, you may not find split screen useful at all.
I'm a writer who does most of my writing on the iPad. For me, split screen will mean being able to have a website or other app up for reference without having to stop what I'm doing, flip over to a browser, find the information I need, and then keep switching back and forth while I take notes on what I'm reading. Split screen is WAY overdue for me.
And I'm glad that you're happy with it. You don't have to use new features that don't interest or work for you. There are plenty of things Apple has introduced I think are a novelty or even useless--I'm looking at you, Siri--features that I disable the minute I get a new device. (My husband uses Siri all the freaking time. I don't get it, but hey, more power to him if he thinks it makes his life easier.) That's the beauty of having choices.There have been apps that allow that for awhile though.
It has a browser on one side, and a notepad on the other.
Anyway, I'm kind of of the opinion that split screen will mostly be a novelty on the iPad..
I think it's perfectly fine as is..
