    Hi guys.

    I know that iPad can't run 2 apps at same time, but imagine a situation

    For example, suppose that I turn on iPad on Apple TV. Can I use for example, goodnotes 4 on iPad display and see iBooks on a monitor ?

    I want to use iPad how my only computacional device and I need a option that I will can work with 2 apps.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm afraid that the iPad cannot run two apps at the same time. T
    You also can't AirPlay mirror one app to Apple TV while at the same time running another app on the iPad display.

    If you're looking for an app that will let you run two apps on the screen at the same time, such as in a split screen mode, you won't find it in the App Store. It's possible that such an app might be available for a jailbroken iPad.

    Side by side will allow you to view up to 4 web sites at once on your iPad but will not allow multiple apps.

    There has been rumors that iOS 9 will have split screen for the iPad. I've seen a jailbreak tweak that can run 2 apps at the same time, I can't remember its name though.

    We'll see in about an hour when the details of iOS 9 are revealed at the WWDC.

    They've just announced split screen multi tasking for the iPad in iOS 9. They're doing a demo right now and it should do exactly what you want.

    Edit: true split screen multi tasking is restricted to the iPad Air 2. Other multi tasking features are available for most recent iPads.

    I watch the WWDC too and that was my impressions, i.e. iOS 9 can be loaded on the older iPads but not all of the features will work - switched to an iPad Air 2 in December - assume that Susan's old iPad Mini will not offer that option, although I don't think she would care? Dave :)

    Slideover, which will be almost as handy (for those apps that support it) will be available on the iPad Air, Mini 2, and newer devices.
