I was hoping you could do this, but seems as if you can't. I hope the next one will have it.
If the iPad is running iOS 4.2.1, then it does indeed have multitasking. While not true multitasking, it is a workable solution. However limited it may seem to be.

Yes you can.
Yes, very limited.
Just curious. Are you new to the iPad or have you lived on some other planet since April?
New. No need to be rude. Not every one is tech savvy. @_@
No worries. There quite many trolls here. Many...
Anyway the iPad does not have preemptive multiple-tasking in the traditional sense, but it has fast-switching where apps are suspended and switched as needed. Developers need to write there apps in a way to make use of this feature. Hope that explains it somewhat.
Let us be honest with everyone.
Apart from a few cases such as music playing at the same time as an app or notifications popping up. Those kind of things. What apple has implemented foe normal apps is not multitasking and it should not be referred to in that way.
Many peoples 1st taste of what multitasking is was the commodore amiga all those years ago.
What apple have done is good. And works well enough for now for most things. Of course some things would work better if it was proper multitasking.
People shoul not really be using this term as its wrong and misleading.
If you freeze the state of an app when it shuts so upon reload it's at the same point it was. That has nothing to do with the term multitasking.
How about sending an email to Apple's marketing department. Tell them that the term Retina display is also incorrect. While you're at it, send an email to the ITU and tell them that the capitulated when they certified the crap networks in Europe as 4G.
Apart from Symbian, no current phones are performing multi-tasking. Not Android, nor iOS.
It's 80% quick app switching with save states and 20% true multi tasking with things like music playing, and downloads completing in the background.
I'm generally pretty ok with it.
