Well this is an interesting one… Makayama have released an App called ‘multitasking’ for the iPad. That may have had you wondering what it is doing, especially given recent announcements for the iPhone – well, it’s about mashing up Safari, a Facebook client, and a Twitter client together!
They run at the same time (hence the name of the App!), allowing you to browse the web, while receiving alerts of Twitter and Facebook updates. The browser can work in half or full-screen mode – while in full screen 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. But why take my word for it, here’s a video:
So there you go – if you’re an iPad-owning social animal, then this App is probably perfect!
