[IDEA] For developers - TouchWiz Multitasking Smart Taskbar
I came up with an idea, that I couldn't find elsewhere. When People like to eat new ideas with their eyes, then I decided to use Photoshop to explain this idea better. Maybe this concept can be embedded into ToucWiz framework or maybe in the future CM/AOKP/PA can figure out how to do real multitasking like in Samsung TouchWiz framework and also with this taskbar addition.
Notice I have added minimize button to every multiwindow app and Icons Active and Inactive states on taskbar (Active glows, inactive in more transparent)
It should work like this:
When you open an app from MultiWindow menu (from the arrow in the middle of taskbar), then its icon will appear onto the taskbar. When you leave the app, the icon glow will become more transparent (it means this app is not active). When you open another app from multiwindow menu then it also appears onto the taskbar. And etc. etc.. I you want to minimize app temporarily then you can use minimize button. If you close the app from "X", then it will dissapear from the taskbar.
Hope you understand better with these pictures.
I am not a programmer/developer, I am a graphics designer, and this is not (yet) a working hack
so if any developer knows how to make this idea real, then I can help with the graphics part if needed.
Though there is nothing complicated in this design.
Polaris is Active
ES File Explorer is Active
Edit: Oops, forgot to add the minimize button for ES.
Viber is Active
All previous apps minimized
Also a button for 4 apps side by side alignment would be nice (I hope no imaginary picture is needed for this), current 2 apps side by side is not enough, our tablet can do more, maybe devs can add it also
Let me know what you think about this idea. And also let others know about this. I hope some day this idea will be possible and we can use our tablet similarly to PC-s.
