[Updated] iPad Multitasking Guide and Tips

A while back, I posted a little guide with tips on how to multitask effectively on the iPad and use the various apps together effectively to accomplish tasks normally reserved for non-mobile computers (desktops or laptops).

So head on over to iPadmodo to read this guide full of tips in order to get the most out of your iPad.
