    In my view, it doesn't make much sence whether we use it or not,just not indispensable.

    Custom ROMS allow all apps to be added to it.

    I honestly don't know yet, I just know it's an option most of them include. I have it on my s3 using MOAR and I am pretty sure Wicked Sensations has it. Just read up on the features in the rom you're interested in...

    I find this hard to believe. Youtube was the very first thing i wanted to test out to see if i can text while still in youtube (or not having to close youtube so the song can continue playing) I clicked mutliwindow, opened up text messaging and it took me right to my texts, stopping the youtube track. I tried the other way around by opening youtube thru multiwindow then going into texts, same thing......Am i missing something?
    I have no idea if this matters or not, I'm just throwing something out there, but could it have something to do with the "Smart" Samsung features (Smart Stay, Smart Scroll, ect.) being enabled? I could see how the multi-window feature could not play nicely with those features.

    Try holding down the second app and dragging it over to the one you already have open.(instead of just clicking it and letting them open individually.) That's what worked for me

    How is it useful on a 5" display? You then are looking at two tiny 2.5" displays.

    That be dinky, but a big screen TV for ants. Or a tiny drive-in screen for them.

    I use it on my Note 2 to listen to you tube, and surface the internet at the same time.

    For me, its biggest failure is it doesn't allow the use of the stock calendar app. If I'm in gmail, it would be nice to be able to access my calendar to enter a date for something without having to remember the info by rote. Jeeze, the calendar is STOCK app. Why wasn't it included?

    I'd definitely start using Multi-Window if the S4 gets the Drag-n-Drop feature like on the Note 3....that feature is AWESOME!

    Long press the back button, and it will reappear if the Multi window feature has been kept enabled. Another long press, it will disappear. you don't need to re-enable every time from the toolbar.
    It's ok, not a revelation, but I'd rather have it than not. I find for no apparent reasons sometimes it disappears even though enabled in the toolbar. (I just open the drop down bar and disable it, re-enable it..)

    But other than that occasional glitch, I find it useful when I need it, mostly for adjusting Power Amp when I am reading an ebook on Kindle or Cool Reader. I pull out Multi-Window, load Pamp, change playlists, back out easily. It makes that process easier without having to go to some other screen to load P-amp, Messaging sometimes is helpful.

    The real problem with the feature is that not enough programs support it. It has "internet" available for support. It would be nice if it had "Firefox," which is actually what I use. It has "mail" available, but not "Gmail" which is what I use. So mostly I use it for P-amp. Other things I might use it for are mostly not supported.
