Default Paranoid multi window

There's new button on navigation bar called MW-button. When it is long pressed a new screen appears that is split in two. Each having an application drawer where all applications can be scrolled. On clicking an application, it appears in the split view on that side.

Primary devices:

..... LG/Google Nexus 5: Android 4.4.2
..... Acer W510: Windows 8.1

Retired devices:

..... LG/Google Nexus 4: Android 4.4
..... HTC HD2: Windows Phone 7.8
..... HTC Legend: Android 4.0
..... UG802 USB: Android 4.0
..... Acer A500: Android 4.3

The Nexus 5, like the Nexus 4, is based off of another LG phone, right? Namely the G2, as the N4 was based on the Optimus G. And people have been porting the Split Window feature from the Flex to the G2 since they're essentially the same phone, so is it possible to port over again?

I like the idea but I won't implement it till it can be proven that haven't two apps are useful while using only half the screen.

Let's assume that another app is only one click away. Under want circumstances would having two apps at be useful understanding that you can see half the content you usual do are useful? For most apps I have found the screen size to be small for two applications especially while utilizing the keyboard. There is simple not enough space for two applications . Until this can be proven more useful than having a temporary mini application then it won't be supported in PA.

I would like this feature too. I use it for college when typing and researching (Brower/OfficeSuite).

I think its useless for phones (being a owner of note 2) but it may be very useful for tablets
