Multitasking for iPad
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Multitasking now available on the iPad. This clever software includes three apps in one:
- Safari webbrowser
- Twitter app
- Facebook app
They run at the same time, allowing you to browse the web, while receiving alerts of Twitter and Facebook updates.
The browser can work in half or full mode. While in full mode, Twitter and Facebook run in the background, alerting you to updates with sounds.

The three apps have all the features you'd expect, like tabbed browsing, favourites, retweets, replies, photo uploads, friends lists, etc.
What the press says:
ZDnet: "I was surprised to see that it actually lived up to its claims, the interface actually lets you interact with Safari, Twitter, and Facebook all simultaneously. This just might be the best way for me to waste hours at a time on my iPad"
Gear Diary: "Multitasking for iPad does exactly what it promises. The application allows you to manage three applications inside one."
iPadtunes: "A fantastic application that makes very good use of the big iPad screen. Most people are now on Facebook and on Twitter but also surf the web, awaiting new tweets and messages. If you do this almost daily I can recommend you to check out Multitasking"
What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed a bug with Twitter login. Changed to oAuth.
I ended up going with the sidebyside app as it was easier to use and was compatible with the websites that only worked with known browsers. I spent six hours and wasted money on this app among others
Won't sign into twitter
When you get your pin from twitter it doesn't do anything when you hit submit. Pretty much garbage. Trust me don't waste your cash.
Facebook & Twitter
Only one window shows up ! The bottom blinks like it wants to show up, but doesn't. Maybe some kind of bug or I'm doing something wrong. Maybe my settings are wrong. Anyway I can only get one window up at any given time !
