Do you remember the promising Microsoft Courier tablet concept that disappointingly never came to fruition? Two Seattle developers, Benjamin Monnig and Ricky Drake did, and couldn't let go of the idea, so they decided to try to attempt to bring some of the best features over to the iPad with an app being developed called, Taposé…


Here is the Microsoft Courier concept as previewed in 2009 for reference.

Taposé: Bringing the Courier to the iPad is an app which mimics the Courier's split screen functionality, making multiple app use easier and giving the iPad a whole new level of functionality.

Split Interface Design:

  • Drag and drop from Safari
  • Drag addresses to Maps for directions
  • Drag contacts over collections to share
  • Finish calculations without leaving Tapose
  • Full screen capabilities
  • & much much more

Middle Separation Bar:

  • Place images, sticky notes, maps, and more into the middle separation bar which acts as a temporary holder
  • Allows easy organization and movement between pages and collections
  • Slide to adjust the view sizes

Collections/Books:

  • Creating a book in Taposé couldn't be easier. Taposé's design draws users in as it appears as a physical book, and accommodates everything a user could need. It will provide functions such as font formatting, free draw, eraser, highlighter, sticky notes, image insert, list creation, and many more. Users have the ability to do anything and everything quickly and creatively.
