In recent weeks, much has been discussed about the current system of iPad multitasking, what is good and especially what is bad about it – inconsistency in its operation and unintuitive functions are among the main criticisms.
We have already published here on the website a concept created by Ryan Christoffel, from MacStories, and now a new one painted on Twitter and is being highly praised.
His author is the design student Tommy Walton.

Of course, this concept alone – which was created using Principle, to whom you are interested – is not 100% perfect / flawless.
Right away we can think about conflicts with other gestures that already exist, like returning to a previous screen, pulling the Slide Over, show the Dock and so on.
However, in a few seconds Tommy managed to show that if Apple engineers and designers put their cacholas to work, iPadOS can improve a lot in that sense.

Here’s another very different proposal, this one by the designer Vidit Bhargava:
My iPad Multitasking Solution: Solves three major problems: 1.
Provides a clear path to launch any app in Split Screen.
2. Clearly shows which app is in focus
