Smartphones and tablets haven’t replaced computers yet, but they’re well on their way. We can already do a myriad of tasks on smartphones that we used to do on computers, but there is still a lot of functionality computers have that smartphones and tablets don’t. One such feature is the ability to have multiple windows open at the same time. Now, at least the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 can do that too.
XDA Forum Member xperiacle has released a mod called Floating Multiwindows. As the name suggests, it combines the concept of floating apps with the concept of multi window. If you’re unfamiliar, floating apps are apps that appear on the home screen of an Android device in a window that is re-sizable and movable. Multi Window is a Galaxy Note II feature where you can have two apps visibly running at the same time. Thus, Floating Multiwindows is multiple apps running simultaneously in windows you can move and shape.
Installation is easy enough. Users will have to edit their build.prop to prepare for the mod, then flash the mod itself. Aside from install instructions, xperiacle has also included a number of tips and tricks on how to use it.
