Dual iPad Apps At Same Time

After some discussion of Windows 8 enabling the ability to run multiple apps on the same screen side-by-side, Aaron Ash decided to implement it on his iPad according to his blog post. As show below, he was running two games of Angry Birds (different versions) at the same time...at least you won't have to wait until all the chaos is complete to line up your next shot.


According to his blog:

There are a few bugs, such as audio not working, and accelerometer events not getting sent to applications; it may take a while to sort these out. The bottom right button turns on “edit mode” which allows you to rearrange applications, and rotate them (Angry Birds normally runs in landscape, here they’re turned).

Aaron managed to get a 3rd app running on the same screen for a little while, but crashed it after adding a fourth. I guess we need the A6 chip in the iPad and improved graphics capabilities for iOS 5 to implement this improvement.

Would you run multiple apps at the same time? How many...
