Two points I want to mention. First, I think mutlitasking is, in large part, a success on Apple's devices. I really don't understand people's complaints in how the multitasking was implemented. I think the 7 multitasking APIs are enough to satisfy 99% of iPhone users. So I think it's been a success. I've been using the feature and I find it suits my needs perfectly. I've been able to switch back and forth between apps and its been great. There's just one small improvement I think needs to be made that would really solidify multitasking on the iPhone (and iPod). I don't like that apps are automatically added to the multitasking queue when you hit the home button. I understand that Apple wants to make the experience seamless, but the fact of the matter remains that I don't need every app running in the background. I use multitasking, but not constantly, and I'll admit it can be a tad annoying having to manually remove apps from the queue. So I have two suggestions to make multitasking better. 1. Give us an option to "swipe" an application off of the multitasking bar. This is quicker than x-ing them out, and more fun. 2. This is the main idea. I don't think that being in an app and pressing the home button should relegate the app directly to the multitasking pane. Maybe some people do, so at the very least, you should be able to select and option to do it differently. And here's how I think it should be done. Press the home button like normal, the app totally quits. Hold down the home button for 3 seconds, the app closes and is relegated to the multitasking bar. This would allow us to control what apps are multitasking, so apps we don't need don't end up on the list. They could even have an option to have it the other way around: short press for multitasking, long press for quitting an app. Either way, I think this would make the multitasking experience better. I appreciate that Apple wants to make the experience seamless, but there should be advanced options for users who want to control it better. So in summary, somewhere in the settings menu, there would be 3 user options for multitasking: 1. All apps relegated to multitasking (how its currently done) 2. Long press for multitasking, short press for quitting 3. Long press for quitting, short press for multitasking What do you guys think?
