    Side by Side is the first multiple-screen document/webpage reader with offline reading and note taking capabilities. It turns one iPad into 2 to 4 devices working in parallel.

    You can browse webpages, download files, read documents, or take notes on each split screen.

    When reading something on the iPad, e.g. a webpage or a PDF document, you might often need a handy tool on the side, e.g. a dictionary, a notepad, your email inbox, your facebook updates, an IM tool to chat with your friends, or a youtube video with your favorite background music. This app provides you plenty of possible ways to organize your beautiful iPad screen.

    There are a lot more you can do with Side by Side. You can open a web-based game side by side and play together with your friend. You can also open two similar documents side by side to read and compare.

    When you want to focus on one side, you still can cover the full iPad screen with one of the panels.

    Features:
    * Web browsing
    * Note taking
    * File downloading
    * File viewing (HTML, images, PDF, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc)
    * Notes sharing via email
    * Adding bookmarks for webpages
    * Adding bookmarks in files (since V1.1)
    * File sharing via email or between apps (since V1.1)
    * Search notes, bookmarks and filenames (since V1.1)
    * Reformat webpages into a text only page (since V1.1)
    * One tap file/webpage downloading mode (since V1.2)
    * Add star to favorite files (since V1.2)

    Downloaded the app using one of the promo codes. It is so simple yet awesome! I love how easy it is to open up more windows and adjust the size od each. I could see myself using this a ton! Writing an email while being able to fact check in another window, etc. Very impressive! I am definitely going to spread the word about this app! Thanks again for the promo code!

    I agree a great app this is what I need to moderate both iphone4 and iPad forums at the same time however I have a problem that I am hopeful can be resolved.

    This application does not allow one to enter in text into message box in the forums. It is grayed out. This issue has been a problem with several browsers that do not simulate safari I have forward an email to the developer hoping it can be resolved as I cannot find any where to fix it.
    Other than that I give it 4 stars but hopeful it will be fixed soon.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    This is really an interesting issue. I just tried several apps with web browsers and in most of them the message box in this forum grayed out (e.g. GoodReader, Duo Browser, etc). But a few of them do work well with this forum (e.g. Apple's own Safari). I will try to find out the answer.

    I have just solved this problem. I just submitted an update, and hopefully it can be released in about one week. Then we can type in the message box in the forums.

    Thanks a lot Col.Bris for the important information you provided!

    From another post --

    To redeem one of those codes, open iTunes, go to the iTunes Store and log in. Scroll to to the bottom of the page and select Redeem under Manage.

    This will open a new box where you can paste in the promo code and the app will automatically download. Sync your iPad and you're in business!

    You can also redeem the promo code directly on your iPad by copying one of the promo codes then opening up the iTunes Store app and scrolling to the bottom of the screen and tapping on Redeem where a box will pop up where you paste in the code and it will download the app.

    I don't know why it would just because it is displaying 4 simultaneous iPod size screens instead of one full size screen? It may take slightly more memory, but the biggest battery hog in the iPad is keeping that screen lit up.

    I haven't experienced this so far. I think 1991-c4 is right.

    The memory consumption actually depends a lot on what type of webpages are loaded.

    Question

    Sounded like a good app. purchased it.

    Stupid question: I got it to open 3 windows, however i see no way of closing the windows. Even if I select two windows, the "second" windows displays the thrid one.

    How do you close down the windows. I can select 4 and it goes to four, and then click to open 2, but that third stays there,

    Hi Guntherm,

    The attached picture shows how to control the number of windows. Basically there are always 4 but you can expand one or more of them and cover some of the rest.

    If there are 3 windows and you want to reduce it to 2, just enlarge one of the smaller windows and let it cover half of the screen.

    Version 1.2.1 was just released yesterday. In this version you can enter texts in the forums.

    In the mean time, the next version (1.2.2) was submitted to the App Store (Now it takes about 11 days to get reviewed.) The 1.2.2 update has some big improvements and will provide a much better web experience.

    Nice to see the updates.
    I have found this app nice in some key uses.

    Not an everyday app for me, but when the right needs arise,
    It has been very useful.

    images in side by side

    Can images be opened in Side by Side from Dropbox? Unlike pdfs, the only export option for jpgs/pngs/etc. in Dropbox seems to be save to photos

    Thanks in advance,
    D.G.
