On November 22, 2010, Apple announced that iOS 4.2 is available today for download for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. iOS 4.2 provides the multitasking feature to the iPad. When you multitask on the iPad, you can juggle more then one thing at a time. Everything happens smoothly and efficiently. Multitasking works by letting you use multiple apps without slowing down the performance of the foreground app. The multitasking user interface allows you to easily switch between different apps that are in use just by double-clicking the home button to bring up a list of your recently used apps. You can scroll to the left or the right to view more recently opened apps and you can click one to reopen it. When you reopen the app, it continues exactly from where you left off. You can continue doing whatever you were doing with that app when closed it. You can also listen to audio while you are checking your email, surfing the web, and playing games.

Multitasking is an extremely convenient feature. With multitasking, you can switch from one app to another with ease and be able to switch back just as easily. You can play one game and when you are bored of it, you can switch to another game. When you want to continue to play the first game you played, you just reopen it again. You can go on Safari, check your email, and continue where you left off on Safari. What do you think about multitasking?
