I am a Pro Apple fan. When Apple announces the iPad, I were thrilled, thinking of how wonderful this touch screen device could fulfill my daily casual usage - surf the web, while at the same time using an IM. A few days of use proves that I may be wrong. The iPad definitely provides the best web-surfing experience. However, it is also a great chore to switch between the IM and the Safari. Though Apple tries to address this via iPhone 4.0 firmware, by enabling double-clicking of the Home button to switch between apps, without going to the Home screen. But isn't it a bit annoying to keep switching between both apps? I mean why can't the IM just pop up on top of my current app, just like the way it works on my desktop. Intensive use of the Home button reduces its lifespan. I would hope that Apple could allow at least 1 app to appear on top of the current app in the size of the iPhone screen size. What do u think?
