    ***Breakthrough Update: The publisher Aeon has an app that lets you add pen window compatibility to many other apps & puts them right in the PW App Drawer!
    It's called MW-Pen App Enabler.
    Just restart after each app and it will be added to the PW app drawer (or click the edit button on pw drawer and move it)

    I love using my Note 3's pen window function with an assortment of apps...

    I went through my app's in Google Play and listed the ones that are compatible below for my, and your, reference.

    I am reaching out to this community to see what other apps work as well.

    For those unfamiliar with opening alternative apps in pen window (without root) I will give a brief how to...
    -Open a new pen window
    -Choose Internet
    -Go to and click on a play store link IE: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gle.android.gm (gmail) or My apps https://play.google.com/apps open in play store (play will open in a pen window)
    -Now try opening each app...some will open in pen window some will go fullscreen.
    -Report back here with new apps for this list!

    Thank you for your efforts.

    **Kitkat update improves pen window with one caveat...
    To open multiple pen windows you need to close the Internet window after you open an app from the list below. ..Hold home and swipe away the Internet process then repeat with your next app.

    Play Music
    Officesuite pro

    Remember when Samsung said there were going to add more apps to pen window... Still hasn't happened.

    Vpblaze, when did Samsung announce that?

    I remember watching a demo video of the Note 3 on the release date. A Samsung employee was demonstrating the pen window and showing it off. He mentioned that more apps were going to be available on the pen window shortly. We have only had the 6 since the release.
    I am not saying it's their fault. I just would like more to be available. I am sure app developers would be able to add their own apps if they could to it. Kind of like how they do with multi window.

    Sure would be nice to have more options available as soon as you open Pen window.
    Have you tried my method?
    Definitely worth the extra steps, then you can leave the chat heads open as you see fit!

    I keep finding more, up to 27 extra possibilities.
    Papryus has a bug when exporting to drive in pen window, but write in a pen window is still better than action memo.

    Anyone have new ones to add??

    Oops! Big mistake on my part! I was listing the apps I get in my Double Window drawer, NOT apps I've run through pen window. I assumed they were the same.

    My humble & sincere apologies.

    I'll go check them now to see if my assumption was in error.

    List is up to 31!
    Keep them coming!

    Looks like any app that forces landscape mode doesn't work...
    Why else wouldn't an app work?

    Thanks for this. I was thinking of this today. I read the thread a little before, but now I caught your post where you apologised and were meaning a list apps that work in Dual Window mode (or whatever it's called).

    Do you have to do anything with the new apps or will they appear in the side bar automatically? I didn't read the whole thread and it's my bedtime.

    EDIT: Yuh. You did say in your first post to try the apps via a browser in the second window.
    It's easier to read these threads on a PC, which is ironic.

    Hi Madd54,
    This is a list of "pen window" compatible apps.
    Pen window is the last option to the right in air command.
    Once you choose pen window...and draw a box(or L)...then you will be given only 7 options...from here you can open any of the apps in my list with a few additional steps.
    Choose Internet...go herehttps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gm (or any play store link)...when asked, choose to open in the play store...play will open...here you can go to any of the apps in my list, click open(or install than open)
    The listed app will open in a new pen window!

    This is an amazing feature! Every Note 3 can do this without rooting!
    Every note 3 user should know about this trick, it is incredibly useful for multi tasking on android.
    Pen window is far superior to multi window and you can have as many open as you want!

    Try this...find new compatible apps I haven't listed...and report back!!!

    Hi Qualify.

    That was hard to input. I tried tripadvisor, and London City Guide when I couldn't get it first time.
    I also tried to "open" from My Apps. No Open button. I will try it another time.
    I found it very hard to see, though I enlarged the pen window.

    I literally was using a magnifying glass to navigate. It helps to have the Play Store already as a bookmark, which I did not.

    I'm sure I'll find it useful in the future, when I get the hang of it. If I keep my phone.

    Sorry I couldn't add some more. I gave it 20 minutes. Regards.

    You can resize the pen window by dragging the edges.
    Also, I only use "Internet" to launch new pen windows, so everytime it opens it displays the last page opened in it...containing the play store link.

    Yeh. I made it as big as I could day 1.

    Don't know if increasing the font helps.

    I guess visibility matters less once you have the app you want opened that's suitable for the pen window.

    I partly went for the Note 3 because of eye strain with my GS2's 4.3" screen.
    I should really get specs now I'm 54.

    It's kinda cool that when you open Internet and then minimize it, you get a floating Chrome globe icon that you can put anywhere, even if you have a "full" home screen. It'll sit over other icons. And you can move it anywhere you want. That's kinda cool. It's like getting a new dimensional space for an additional icon that can move anywhere on the page. Neat.

    In fact, you can do that for each of the apps in the pen window and leave them up simultaneously and they'll follow you. They are hovering over the screen as I type this. I can move from here to FB and they'll hang around.

    Sorry this is not really the thread.

    Is it easy to find / add more apps for the multi-window thingy, and have them appear in the side bar list?

    Nice you can have 3 windows open including the pen window.

    My version of Meeting Minutes Pro, By Sriman Apps Version 28, release 3.0 works just fine. I just finished a meeting with my boss, took notes in Meeting Minutes Pro using the pen box, synced them so they are available on my Tab. Are you sure you are on the Pro version, and using the latest. BTW, I have a Verizon phone, could there be a difference in the Android Builds?
