Instead of just writing out how to use multitasking on your iPad, we thought we’d show you how it works. But first a little tip I picked up recently, using microfibre cleaning cloths to polish your iPad or iPhone (or iPod Touch) screen:
No, I’m not going to be selling these on infomercials, I just thought you’d like to see this. My wife found them with other cleaning products and cloths.
Regardless, multitasking in iOS 4.2.1 (on the iPad) here’s the video:
- Remember double-clicking the home button doesn’t bring up iPod controls anymore, it brings up the multitasking pane
- Press and hold (like deleting or moving apps) to close
- Slide to the right to get to rotation lock and iPod controls
Not all apps have been updated for multitasking as yet, so I’d keep checking for app updates over the next few days (week?) for updates as they roll in.
Next up…App folders!
