    Default Multitasking Rom?

    Hello,

    Is there a rom that allows multitasking of native apps? I've tried apps from the Play Store but it uses apps that the developer made for the app.

    By default android multitasks.
    Could you clarify?
    Until the oom killer kicks in, or you manually force close apps, they usually stay running in the background until reboot.
    If you're running ics or later, hold down the home button to see what all is running. Swipe em away to kill em.

    Sorry for the vagueness, I meant multitasking as in multiple windows opened at once.

    even Froyo does that.
    to re-open an app in the state you exited it from, long-press home button, select the app.
    it'll reopen where it was when you exited it.

    Oops, I meant side by side. Windowed, etc...

    dunno bout that.
    considered eventually making launcher like that but not until I've got a better grip on sending native Linux bitmap output to a Surface.

    [APP][Xposed] XMultiWindow 1.6.0-- Like Omniā€¦ | Xposed General | XDA Forum
    requires xposed to work but runs on p500 cm11, so might do what you want.
