This cool iOS 7 multitasking concept video ought to make Jony Ive take note

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 02:43 posted on

Currently iOS only allows certain tasks to run in the background, and actively manages what's behind the scenes by ditching them when the going gets tough automatically. Below is a pretty cool concept video of what the upcoming iOS 7 multitasking capabilities should and perhaps could look like, so tell us what you think about the effort...

Yeah, when I saw it, I thought it looked just like BB10, and Max thought it looked just like Meego.

Does that mean that Android users reality is just a dream for iOS users? :)

No, it doesn't.
There's already an app Auxo for Jailbroken devices. :)

Same argument as rooting Android, you shouldn't have to hack your phone for basic functionality.

I was about to say the same thing..... Looks almost identical to the multitasking window on my HTC One..... which would make sense (if it was real) due to Apple/HTC cross licensing deal.

This is already out on jailbroken iPhones and Android devices. I had it on my old iPhone. I'm pretty sure both projects were discontinued i believe.

It's not apple that did it. It was just from a really really hopeful fanboy. Not going to happen though. Apple marches to the beat of their own drum.

This is so Maemo 5. I used to own Nokia N900 before i got myself android phones and tablets. Exact copy from nokia. I wish other companies take serious action against apple. Apple copies everything and they blame others.
Look at this video.
