    Default Some early thoughts on split screen...

    So I've been playing with El Capitan all day and I have to say, split screen is a bit unpolished right now...(duh right? Beta and all)

    I find that the apps you select are very particular about how they want to be resized, iMessage for instance kept wanting to either be resized too small to use or would not wrap properly and you couldn't really see the messages part (I do like the minimizing of the contact info though to the pictures you have in your contact info, that is helpful).

    The Photos app was very wonky...kept shutting down or freezing to the point I had to force quit when used in split screen.

    Email seemed to work fairly well, but it did have some text wrapping issues of it's own.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the progression of this feature, because it COULD be very useful, but it needs a lot of consistency improvement and just overall polish to really feel natural in OS X.

    Good to know. I haven't gotten a chance to install it yet. Busy selling and buying a house and arranging the move. I can't wait to try it out.

    Agreed, a little sloppy for now. Also, if you exit the full screen mode, it seems to throw the individual apps Into their own spaces, which takes time to clean up and is obnoxious. It also annoys me that you have to have separate spaces for displays enabled, but this is what I expected from a technical standpoint.
