    If iOS 6 had Slide Over and Split View multitasking...

    What do you think?

    Legible? Mediocre? Great? Tacky?

    Totally fine. Why would there be anything wrong with it or weird about it?

    Nothing wrong with it. Just the UI would be ugly.

    More different than ugly really, since plenty think the current UI is ugly.

    I think the current UI design for Multitasking doesn't fit iOS 6's design completely. My main issue is just that Slide Over looks a little weird (It needs a much more defined drop shadow) and the divider for Split View is badly made (I'd make it look like a grabber, not the NC + a white dot).

    Well, that's just a quick concept someone put together. It's not really perfect but gets the idea across.

    Yeah, I was just saying in this implantation it looks wonky.

    It doesn't look bad though. Just clean up those elements and I'd almost like it better than iOS 7's design.

    I wish i could dual boot iOS versions on my iPad 2. I'd have iOS 6 on there for the nostalgia.

    I think it's getting clearer why Apple decided to do away with skeumorphism. So apps can exist side-by-side and not look out of place with each other.

    Makes me miss the world background on the world clock. There was nothing skeumorphic about that. Add daylight and it'd be a bit more functional.
