Taposé is a new iPad app that’s interesting for a number of reasons. It’s based on Microsoft’s dual-screen Courier tablet idea, partly funded by ex-Microsoft design guru J Allard (and also by Kickstarter funding), and it’s touted as a new revolution in multitasking, collaboration, productivity, and content creation.
The app uses a slide bar to split the screen and let your work with its various applets in separate areas of the page. Here are some of its most notable features:
•Multitasking features that allow processes to literally run side-by-side.
•Cloud based cross collaboration options that would make other companies blush.
•Enough practical features to supplement many of the iPad’s native functions.
Taposé’s moleskin features include:
• Handwriting & Drawing
• Sticky Notes
• Lasso tool
• Wrist guard (left and right handed)
• Zoom box
I gave Taposé a very quick try last night when it first hit the App Store. I think it’s definitely an interesting and promising concept, though right now it feels very much like the 1.0 version that it is. I didn’t find it that smooth or intuitive to work with – but again I only spent a short while with it – so that’s just a very quick first impression.
Here’s an App Store link for Taposé; it’s priced at $2.99.
Have any of you tried out Taposé yet? Oh, and one little side thought – I don’t quite understand what the accent is for on the e in Taposé. Its App Store page says it’s derived from the word juxtapose (and they have an accent on the e there too) – but I don’t recall ever seeing juxtapose with an accent before. Can any of you who are skilled linguists offer some insight on this?
