    Default Pull out tab on my screen

    Hi All
    Just got my verizon note 2. After playing with it for a few hours a pullout half circle appeared on the left of my screen giving access to 7 apps (email, gallery,internet, messaging etc) How did it appear and how do I get rid of it?

    I've been doing a little digging and no.....you can't seem to add any apps....crazy. sounds like the guys at xda are looking at a solution with a root, but........might take a while

    Once the Verizon version gets root we can do a bit more to fix the usual mess ups that Verizon gives us.

    From what I understand, when you download or update an app that has been optimized for use in multitask window, it will add itself to the list. So, new icons may start appearing there as we go... I hope.

    That's the behavior I saw too on my Verizon sn2. I downloaded "super video"
    App and it automatically appeared in thev multi-Window panel.

    By default most apps aren't optimized for multi Window for Verizon.

    I'm hoping Verizon/Samsung will release an android update soon that will have YouTube, Gmail and other commonly used apps to show up on panel

    Total Commander is another app that shows up in the sidebar when you download it.

    I have the multi window working with all my apps now. Have to have root and then follow this process:

    Verizon Galaxy Note 2: Adding all apps to Multi Window bar (MultiView) | AndroMods

    Works perfectly.

    Sidebar is another application that can replace the multi window application once you turn it off. Works better and very customizable.
