    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hands-on | Android Central

    "Multitasking on a smartphone is still something many major players are working out how to do right." :rolls eyes: And I swear if iOS 7's multitasking gets rave reviews of "a company finally got it right" I'm going to punch a kitten. A really cute one.

    I would consider going to whichever OS has the best multi-tasking or most similar to WebOs. Right now I have the Note 2 and while I luv the huge screen I miss WebOs. I still have my touch pads to get my fix.

    It would suck if apple was the first to get it right. It would be hard to go back to a tiny screen.

    Ha. I'd settle for 512MB of unshared RAM on my Pre 3.

    They already did. iOS 7 is basically like webOS 1.4.5.1. And why the heck would that suck?

    Check out the video I made of it

    I am excited about some of the new features added to iOS, but I HATE the new UI! I can't be so blunt on imore or I would get lambasted by the overzealous members and moderators telling me to get a different phone or calling me a troll. I'll have to put up with the ui or live without the features I guess.

    I agree. Tim Cook needs to fire whoever created iOS 7

    The multitasking on iOS 7 is basically similar to webOS in look only. Yeah, the cards are there, but the function is still very different. If I remember correctly webOS just kept everything in a card open.

    If Apple is credited with, "Doing it right" it will be because of how the OS decides to keep apps open and pull info from rather than how you actually switch between apps. The model is supposed to go to one where iOS 7 picks the apps you use most at the time of day you use them and remember to keep them open for you at that time.

    I believe it was Brian Klug from Anandtech who said on an edition of Vector that he believed Android will be going in a similar direction.

    I thought Palm did multitasking on phones first ? now Samsung or Apple will claim they did it, and linking phone and tablet together with calls texts etc by a major manufacturer is a new feature, my Touchpad/pre 3 did that in 2011, And every OS is borrowing parts of web OS the cards being one, Palm must have got a lot right, a shame they could not have still been here today developing web OS to be the leading system. Sorry forgot HP screwed it up.

    I never really use stacks or mini cards. Only to show off to my friends how much smoother and better my webOS device is than their shattered and laggy samsung devices

    Yeah, never got into the habit of using those features. Next up: live cards - yeah right.

    I heard someone say they never pay any attention to stacks before and I can't imagine. To me it's scrolling aimlessly left and right without stacks or minicards. I wish my laptop had stacks.
    How I use my phone is to have my main app (most often a music player) by itself and the others I want to get to in a stack to the right. Minimal scrolling and very easy. Sometimes I use advanced gestures.
    In fact I hated webos on the touchpad until lunaCE fixed it because the cards were way too big and it was just a lot of blind scrolling this way and that

    What OS do you use? I use Linux with WindowMaker as my window manager and can do the usual alt/ctrl+tab to switch apps but also ctrl+alt+left/right between desktops, so essentially ctrl+alt+left/right can be considered move between a stack and ctrl/alt+tab to move up and down that stack. I believe Windows has a virtual desktop app but it isn't very good and I guess Apple kit has similar.
