Multitasking Slide Over

"I am using my iPad Pro as my primary device, except for large photo and video editing jobs; so having Multitasking in Daylite available to me is very helpful. I am able to view and work in Daylite while working in whatever app I need open, based on the task or project at hand."

– Joe Nowosielski, ARTStech Solutions

Testimonial from Adam at Liquid Reality
“I love the new Insight View. For me, it’s still early for the value of Insight to kick in, but over the next six months I think it’s going to be able to show me where I’m spending my time, where my effort is going, and where my revenue is actually coming from.”
