Developer: There's Code in iOS 8 for Split-Screen Multitasking

By Adam Clark Estes on at

An app developer says he's found code in iOS 8's SpringBoard, the hidden app that manages the homescreen, that offers the ability to run two apps side-by-side.

Not only does the code let you split the screen in two with an app on each side, but you can also go 1/4- or 3/4-size allowing for all kinds of screen arrangements. We've heard tell of this one coming, but it'll still be a cool feature, when it almost inevitably sees the light of day. [@stroughtonsmith]
