Recently my girlfriend got me new note 8.0 as she said my old tab was sluggish. As a first time Note user shifting from tab 7.7, I found that there are few things that I couldn't find in my note 8.0 like:

1. No quick app task bar - I quite used to open calculator from the task bar and it would come out as a floating pop up window, I could easily drag the window anywhere and closed it once I was done with it.

2. Cascade view multiwindow - As I was using note 8.0 erobot ROM with multiwindow MOD

Is there any shortcut or anything that I can change somewhere? I have tried to look around but still can't find it.

Thank you.

i'm actually the user that ported the multiwindow mod to the 7.7 originally...if u want the same exact experience u had on the P6800 the u can use my mod in the link below BUT unfortunately it only works on 4.1.2 so u would need to downgrade if you're on 4.2.2. If its ONLY cascade mode that u want then its possible to mod the flashbar (left side quick app task bar/multiwindow launcher) to have the dual/cascade mode buttons u are used to seeing in the minimode panel/nav bar...since the left launcher is the default multiwindow mode for the note 8 then i assume that what u want is the bottom quick apps task bar/minimode tray launcher that u have been using on the 7.7 which means u should follow the link below

For the floating calculator? I use pie launcher and aircalc. I swipe from the left to bring out the pie and slide to air calc. Pretty fast too for like 20 of my favorite apps (including floating stickies and evernote and the floating voice recorder). I also use overlay launcher set as a launch point just at the level of the volume rocker so it's different from the lauch area of pie launcher, Use it for specialty apps like tasker and shortcuts to "activities".Then for swiping from the right I use swapps for an alphabetized quick launch bar. Most 1 gig ram tabs and phones find this hard to handle but the note 8 breezes through.

Multiwindow cascade? I'm planning to do that too but still enjoying stock for now...want to wait it out for that new magazine UX that's replaced touchwiz UX on samsung tablets. I hope it makes it to the note 8 during the next update...

Yes, I am actually using your multiwindow mod and like it very much on my tab 7.7. About the tray launcher, Is it possible to make it hidden for note 8.0? Is it compatible with N5120? I feel that the good thing about note 8.0 screen, it isn't block by the task bar like at tab 7.7. I'm still learning to use Note 8.0, but sometimes I miss some part of tab 7.7 that I am already getting used to it. Thanks!

I just downloaded aircalc and tried to use it for my note, but I feel the ads was so annoying, I previously used realcalc and like it so much, thanks for your suggestion
