Taposé (pronounced "tap-oh-ZAY"), a new note-taking app by Zanther, Inc., addresses a problem a lot of iPad users probably wish they didn't have to endure: switching back and forth between two full-screen apps in order to copy and paste items. Taposé lets you split the iPad screen into two side-by-side panes. It comes with five apps that work in the dual panes: Journals, a note-taking app; Web, an integrated browser; Maps, a subset of Go

Taposé can use the iPad's camera to take pictures, which it places in its clipboard for use in Journal pages. Taposé deposits photos dragged from the clipboard onto a page at about 60% to 80% of their full size, and sometimes without regard for orientation. Fortunately, it's easy to pinch to reduce photos and manually turn them right side up. Images are handily translucent before final placement. One note: Taposé doesn't copy photos to the iPad's photo album. In other words, photos taken with Taposé are available only for use in Taposé. If you want complete control over your photos you'd be better off taking them using the iPad's camera app and then importing them into Taposé.
