Hi, does anyone know whether you can split the screen on an iPad so that you do or read two different things at the same time?I.e open two apps at the same time. For example - I would like to be reading a document whilst at the same time maybe typing an email or document? I know the split screen app exists which allows me to look at two different Internet pages but need the above

Does an app exist?

Advice welcome

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

Not sure if you are talking about the app Desktop or not but it has a split screen and you can compose emails on one of the screens and notes on the other. There are limited choices available with what you can do, but might be worth a look anyway.
