Had some down time today, and wanted to design something. Yet another take on the oft-redesigned iOS multitasking interface. This takes cues from a bunch of other designs from Dribbblers, PalmOS, etc.

Ah man I would love to see something like this in iOS! Do you think an interface like this would scale to the iPad?
@David Keegan I think so... assuming the iPad's apps scaled the same way, they would take up most of the room. The bottom bar could contain the same thing it does now—the volume and brightness controls.
@Logan Collins I guess I am curious about how the user experience would be having to swipe through pages of app on such a large screen. Maybe if you could flick to jump through multiple apps.
@David Keegan Aah. I see what you mean. I could imagine a pinch-to-zoom behavior that scales it to a grid of apps. Four to sixteen per page, depending on size. More thought could yield to a better experience though.
I love this.
@David Keegan I imagine that the ipad could scale the app screens smaller, showing more on the left and right. In practice, I personally never swipe more than just a few apps in the multitasking bar, so I think that would be plenty usable.
Shit! I like this idea!
What about the enter animation to this view? Do U have any ideas?
@JustD I imagine, when double-tapping the home button, the main app would scale down into place in the middle and the icon would fade in above it. Everything else could already be in place.
@Logan Collins ah yeah a grid of apps could work great on the iPad.
4:20 PM eh? :\
@Louie Mantia It's amazing how all screenshots are taken at *exactly* the same time of day. But seriously—only because every other design seems to like that time. :P
9:41 AM forever!
Looks amazing and it fits perfectly with the current Apple design (e.g. Mission Control). The only thing that bothers me is the fact that you now need more taps & swipes to switch between apps.
If you want to open the 2nd last used app, you double click the home button and tap the icon. In your version you need to double click, multiple swipe and tap to open the app.
Anyway, very nice concept :)
@Louie It's funny because I wasn't aware of that 4:20 PM thing until I moved to California and people started to tell me about it. I guess a lot of foreign designers aren't aware of that. Pretty funny.
Also, I like this concept @Logan.
