How to Make Separate Screens on an iPad

By Matt McGew

Split Screen is a paid application from Apple's App Store that allows you to make separate screens on your iPad. Using this application you can simultaneously use two or more applications on your device without having to manually switch back and forth between the applications. You can download and install the Split Screen application to your iPad directly from the App Store. Split Screen is the only application available that allows you to make separate screens on your iPad.

Step 1

Tap the "App Store" icon on your iPad.

Step 2

Tap the "Search" icon.

Step 3

Enter "Split Screen" in the search bar.

Step 4

Select the "Split Screen" application.

Step 5

Tap the "$0.99" icon to purchase the Split Screen application.

Step 6

Tap the "Buy Now" icon to confirm your purchase.

Step 7

Tap the "Split Screen" icon on the home screen of your iPad.

Step 8

Tap the New icon and select the application that you want to open. This will create a single window within the Separate Screen application. Tap the New icon a second time and select another application to open the second application in another window. Repeat to add more than two application windows.

Step 9

Shrink or enlarge each of the application windows to the desired size by using the iPad's zoom feature. Place two fingers together within the application window that you want to enlarge and slowly separate your fingers to enlarge. Move your fingers closer together to shrink the size of the application window.
