Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Running apps and multitasking, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
One of the most significant new features introduced back with the release of…iOS 4 was Multitasking.…Multitasking allows you to leave multiple applications running and quickly…switch between them.…This helps you to do things like start playing games exactly where you left off,…leave GPS applications running in the background or have music apps keep playing…music while you perform other apps on your device.…Multitasking is available on the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4 and 4S and the 2nd…Generation iPod touch and later.…Let's take a look at how it works.…I have an app called Pandora installed on my iPhone.…It's a popular streaming Internet music app.…
So here on my iPhone running iOS 5, I can start some playing and once the music…is playing, I can start doing other things on my iPhone while the music…continues to play in the background.…I'll tap my Home button and maybe I want to work on some email or maybe I want…to check the weather.…As you can hear, Pandora continues to play music the entire time.…
