Can my iPad multitask?Kind of. Right now no 3rd party applications can multitask. A few of Apple's applications can continue to work while you are in other apps (like iTunes and the calendar's appointments). Perhaps with iPhone OS 4.0 out June 2010, the iPad will multitask.
When you press the home button the application on the screen has 5 seconds before it will terminate (press the home button and count, it will never go over 5 seconds before you get back home). During that time the application can save where you are in their application so when you return you can continue (if the application supports that).
