    I think everyone here already knew how the Multitasking will work.
    Am I wrong?

    "in our initial testing, only Apple apps, like the Clock, Mail and Safari, can multitask. That’s it!” Um, that’s because there are no third-party apps available yet that have this built in. That’s exactly why Apple is sending out emails that they’re going to start accepting them now."

    "“When we spoke to a number of developers, that aren’t keen to be named in this article for fear of backlash from Apple, they all confirmed to Pocket-lint that, for any app to take advantage of the new multitasking features, it will have to be updated.” Uh, yes. That’s exactly what Apple has been saying all along. I’m not sure what backlash a developer would face for pointing that out."

    That article is a crock of nothing.

    You would be better off reading about multi-tasking's abilities from Apple's website.

    This article just rehashes the news with an anti-iphone slant.

    Fast App Switching alone will make the OS seem faster and won't lose the user's state when the app is exited. That will make a lot of people forget the app isn't actually still running.

    Man, if only Apple had told everyone this a couple of months ago, maybe in early April. Better than that, they should have done it shortly after the announcement of iPhone OS 4.

    Damn, Apple is trying to screw everyone and no one else has said anything about it which must mean that I'm the only person who has figured it out!

    :rolleyes:

    WTF? I bet more of the general public will be SURPRISED that the iPhone 3GS and above can multitask come iOS 4.

    The amount of 3GS owners I know that didn't even know iOS 4 was on its way is astounding. Only us forum going tech nerds know this inside and out.

    Opinions are like anal orifices... everybody has one. I love how all the pundits, even large corporations like Samsung are slamming the great new features of iPhone before having even seen or used one in person. Fear is such an ugly thing.

    No, multitasking will be exactly as limited as Apple is advertising. They've been nothing but perfectly clear about the capabilities and limitations of their new multitasking API's.
