Why are people actually content with this crippled multitasking?
Say you're playing a game that isn't multitask-able and you're on the verge of breaking the high score, then you get an important email that you MUST read/reply. Will you still be happy with the crap that Apple calls multitasking then?
There might be "workarounds" to this, but why create more problems when there is a simple solution? I'll probably ditch Apple's "multitask" and stick to Backgrounder if this really is the case.

This is just like I told before in another article here on modmyi. They are going to limit the multitasking per device.
Its soooo strange that Apple Cant multitask the way it should.. It just CAn but they woulnd do it. Why not just put some extra Ram in the Device and let minimal you can choose to set 5 APPS to be Backgrounded and then you can quit one and put another in his place..
I dont think it not something they Cant do..its just they want to control the system overal..its kinda sad to see that.
And mostly they have to disabled a lot of Languages and other stuff that really dont need to be running in the kernal or background..they take a lot of memory and process...
1: Delete or let users select its language when setting up the phone and the rest of language will be deleted automaticly
2:Prevent or Stop putting services that dont be needed that takes memory and processor
3:Put more ram in the device. Ram is not so Expensive any more. the Flash memory is more Expensive than normal Memory..so why not make it 512Ram
4: Let us choose minimal 5 Apps that we want to put in background .. we can switch between to quit and put other instead of the one
5: JUST DO IT APPLE

I dont understand why everyone get hype about all this apple talk whatever they come out with it will be restricted. They only allow you to have what they feel you need that's why video recording was so groundbreaking (to them). When they come out with new (old) tech for the iphone people go crazy and spend hundreds of dollars for something people have been doing for years. I for one don't need a ipad don't want a ipad its a oversized ipod but everybody will soak it upIF I HELPED PLEASE HIT THANKS

I have to say that I run multitasking a lot with Circuitos and that thing is not draining battery as fast. I dont know why but if one guy outside appe can do this...Apple can do it 2. I run Beejive and Whatsapp mostly everyday on multitask..with also Phone and Mail app backgrounded by default.

Yea just speculation people, but I can see where it's daunting. I mean, it's Apple.
What I'm wondering is, if those multitasking capabilities are "activated" on the new iPhone, and only for a certain number of apps, could a dev possible use that to make it work system-wide? Granted it's jailbroken."Thanks" button. Learn it. Use it. Love it.

apple tab like multitasking would be good, as long as the switch is seamless. thats the only difference between springboard and multitasking: multitasking lets you switch apps in a fraction of a second; springboard takes 3-4 seconds to switch apps.Wanna-be coder/iphone user since '08

What the hell's so wrong with Apple "controlling" the user experience?
I work for a very large mobile retailer in the uk, and all I see day after day is people ruining there "un-controlled" phones! Whether it's over loading what their phones capable of, or having a bluetoothed corrupt file running a mock at it's own will!
I like apples restrictions (altho their excuses are pants), we never ever get faulty iPhones handed back, just happy users :-D
And there is always jailbreaking, mine is jailbroken, and I have things like the "backgrounder", but let's be honest, how many of us have spent hours and hours restoring iPhones because of a interfering and alien cydia app or mod?

Well said WHO the f**** wants multitasking and what you gonna achieve.
What you wanna do like play game while watching movie or or writing a email while watching movie....
What the f****
listen I am an busy person, always on the run, still I don't see any use of multitasking, this is the cry started by some stupid. Compitition, who just wanna be a cry baby.
ASK yourself how many window user actually work with 3-4 software at a time on their junky window os.
I tried in my window laptop and what I could see a hang OS which I have to hard restart.
I use powerful 16 GB power Mac and my new i7 with 8 GB ram, still I don't see any use of stupid multitasking.
And I can very well understand the reason why apple is going to restrict MT, because it slow your proccessor and kill the battery.
Now imagine apple give go ahead for all the apps MT enabled, your battery will die in few hours.
And all the blogs will be full with complaints nothing else.

My main use for proswitcher is switching back and forth between my shopping list and calculator. I add up my grocery bill as I shop to make sure I'm not in for a surprise at the register. Otherwise I could go without it.
