    I have yet to really play with it. The one time I did it worked as advertised.

    It doesn't work with my phone.... and I tried different apps too. I'm curious to see how many other users have the same problem.

    Seriously? Then mine is the only one not working properly? I can't believe that.

    Let me explain this one more time...
    I'm trying to use the same exact app on a split screen... Meaning I want to have 2 separate text messages sessions going on at the same time!

    I opened one window, then opened a message app in the second window, then switched. Not sure why I had to do it that way but worked just as easily.

    It's messed up because I was watching the key-note presentation when they announced the note 3 and they demonstrated that as one of the key new features! I'm truly upset over this.

    How are you attempting to accomplish this? I open the multiwindow from the home screen and drag the internet browser onto the screen and navigate to whatever page. I then go back to the multiwindow and drag another internet browser onto the lower half of the screen and navigate to another page.

    I'm talking about using 2 texting apps at the same time. Just like the web browsing that you're talking about. We should be able to have 2 text conversations simultaneously and share info (like addresses and pictures) between the Windows.

    2 things:
    • Thread title reminds of the famous Joe Pesci scene from Goodfellas where he's messing with Henry at the restaurant.
    • I hate vague...thread titles.
