I agree as well. I've started to use the Apple Reminders app (as simple as it is) because I can pull it up during a meeting while I'm writing notes with Notability so I can record my tasks from a meeting. I really don't want to go backward, but I've changed to other apps that support split screen on my iPad Air2. It really is a huge benefit productivity wise.
I've registered a couple of times for the Beta. When will I get notification on that?
