    Default Multitasking Window Rocks

    Wow. what have we been missing on this? The ability to view the web on one screen while having your gmail open below it? C'mon now. That's an awesome feature. Why did it take TMO so long? Love the latest update. 5 mins old but still love it.

    As some one who does a lot of movie and YouTube watching on his phone this feature is much appreciated by me. NotHaving to stop or pause what I'm watching and all check on something else. That's what I've been waiting for my whole life. Lol

    This is fantastic! Makes the note more versatile. It would be awesome if swiftkey would develop a transparent theme for the keyboard so you can see what you are typing.

    There is some level of customization, you can add/remove apps from the bar and you can re-arrange the order. Not much but there is some.

    What kind of customization where you looking to have.

    I'm a little confused with the multi-tasking window feature. Should I be able to see two apps at the same time with this feature or just be able to switch between app by selecting one in the side bar? Just want to make sure i'm not missing out on all the fun.

    Yes it's being able to see two windows(apps) on the screen. Android has had an app switcher for some time.

    This feature only works with apps that support Samsung's API.

    To enable this open an app from the Window. Press and hold the second app an slide your finger to the bottom of the screen

    I agreed. I wish it could do more. Sadly not all app have support for multi Window. One thing I don't like about it is the tab peeking out on the side. It just felt it in the way. Good thing for the notification bar quick setting. I was worried that I have to go to setting to disable/enable it but after seeing it have a quick setting too. I'm good to go.

    I don't really use it that often because it is very limited. Like I said, not all app support it

    I can customize my window apps because I run a rom.

    Run a rom and u can do this and wouldent have had to wait either. Ive had this for the last two months.

    You can don't need to run a custom rom. You can do it with the stock rom if you are rooted. There is a simple hack that allows you to run any program in multi window with a rooted stock rom.

    True, but custum roms are in my opinion better. Not just for the mwc but for other things that carriers failed to include and for the removal of the usless things the did include, like nfs add app

    You don't even need to hit the multi tasking quick switchin the notification bar, just hold down the back button and the tab will go away...hold it again to bring it back
