There’s a Kickstarter project that’s inspired from the promise of the ill-fated Microsoft Courier and delivers a similar “two-panel” experience to the iPad. Interested? Yeah, us too. It’s called Taposé and it comes with an adjustable split screen interface that’s supposed to let you “interact with multiple apps simultaneously in the company of Taposé collections”.
There’s three major components to Taposé: The split interface design, which lets you drop stuff (like images, text, contacts, maps) from one side to another. The middle separation bar, which is adjustable, so you can have more screen real estate dedicated to one side, or evenly split, or full screen a side. And the collections/books option, which is basically a notepad with various writing options. It all sounds great! But remember, Taposé is only a concept so what we see right now might not be what we see when it releases. Admittedly, what we do see right now is flipping awesome.
The app has already reached its funding goal but probably needs a lot of time in the oven to deliver the sort of seamless experience that would make it work. If done right, Taposé can be the Courier app we so desperately wanted on our iPad. Let’s hope Taposé’s developers can pull it off.
