Open two applications at the same time on the screen.
For those working on two apps at the same time, you can open both apps on one screen with a single overlay app, or you can split the screen to provide adequate screen space for both apps.
If you have an app open in the background, you can open the second app in the slide window. This solves the problem of switching between two applications. Just access the app icon from the dock and drag it to any side of the screen. The second app will open in a smaller window on top of your main app.
You can move this application window to any side of the screen with the help of the controller located above the sliding window. Use a finger to drag the slide to the window on either side of the screen.
While the iPad OS is still in beta, it will be easy for users to use it to open and switch between many slide applications by sliding the controls at the bottom of the slide in a window. You can swipe left or right to open other apps that open in the sliding window.

With an app already open on your screen, grab the second app icon from the dock with one finger and drag it to the right side of the screen. You will see that the applications that are currently open are automatically reduced to be part of the screen space and the second application will open on the rest of the screen.
