Multi-Tasking on the iPad Is Actually Pretty Great ➝

Josh Ginter:

Certain apps work better than others inside the Slide Over deck, and when they’re optimized, their convenience is unmatched. I keep a calculator app in Slide Over at all times, I keep an iteration of all messaging apps in Slide Over, and I like to keep an iteration of the Files app available at all times. These kinds of “in-and-out” apps are exceptional for Slide Over.

I’m really underutilizing Slide Over.

‘Google’s iOS Apps Are No Longer Great’ ➝

Federico Viticci is disappointed with the state of Google’s iOS apps. Specifically with the lack of Slide Over and Split View support for many of their apps on the iPad.

I can’t say it’s effected me much. YouTube and Google Photos are the only Google-developed applications I have installed on my devices. I wish YouTube had picture-in-picture support, but there’s plenty of third-party implementations. As for Google Photos, I rarely open the app. It usually just runs silently in the background, uploading any new photos I take.

Sidefari, a Web Browsing Companion for iPad ➝

A neat little iPad app that uses iOS 9’s Safari View Controller and Slide Over to easily display two webpages at once.

And I no longer need to keep jumping between tabs for references or to copy and paste author names and quotes.
