    is there a quick way to switch between apps ? While some programs you just click on the icon again, that doesn't always work. With podkast for example it'll just run the program twice.

    That likely will also run the program twice, I'd be interested in hearing if it does.

    This isn't a true multi-tasking environment. If you are watching a youtube video, you can't do other stuff and hear it in the background.

    ^ What do you mean run the program twice? If you already opened the app, and went to something else, that original app will be dormant in the background (or even possibly still active depending on what its doing). All you're doing is switching back to it. You are not opening the same app twice

    try listening to a podcast with podkast. Go out to another app it will keep playing in the background. when you try to go back it won't let you access the player playing the podcast you are listening to.

    That may be the app itself, and not the OS, thats causing that issue. What are you using to listen to podcasts?

    The top of the screen menu can be pulled down and has your current running programs.
