Default Minimised apps!

Tap (don't drag) one of the apps in the sidebar, it will open up in a new window on top of whatever you have running. Now tap the minimise symbol '_' on the top right of the window. The app gets reduced to a small disc that can be moved around to wherever you want!
It's not earth-shattering but it's a nice touch!

On mine, it only displays in portrait mode (which is contradictory to where the IR Blaster is located) and only uses about a quarter of the screen (seems to be behaving like the device is a phone, instead of a tablet). Also, the text in the menus is off, again like its not correctly designed for the screen resolution. Peel worked really well on my old Note 8 (broke the screen); so I'm surprised to see these issues.

Since Peel is mostly unusable for these reasons, I've been using WatchOn. WatchOn is not bad, but not great either. It doesn't seem to have as much personalization as Peel, and often displays shows I don't have interest in.
Are you rooted? I'm running stock os model SM-T320 wifi bought from best buy. I've not installed the latest os update with "kids mode"

I say all that to say Peel works just fine in landscape for me.
