[REF] Definitive 'apps that work with multi-screen' list

So it seems that only certain apps work with multi-screen and it is not just samsung apps.

Here I plan (with your help) to create a difinitive list of all apps that will work.

I have already noticed that some apps allow themselves to be splitscreened even when they do not appear in that list e.g. official twitter app.

Some apps you will find when you press the edit button, you can then drag them to the main list, or remove ones you do not use.

Samsung Apps
- ChatON
- Email
- Gallery
- Internet
- Messaging
- S-Note
- Video Player

Google Apps
- Chrome
- Gmail
- Maps
- Talk
- Youtube

Third Party Apps
- Facebook
- Official Twitter app
- Polaris (Viewer)


Note: you will need to be using Samsung stock keyboard to benefit from typing when on multi-screen mode, otherwise your keyboard will cover the entire bottom screen.

What about S-planner and Calculator app? I would think these would be two of the most useful to use multi-screen, or at least floating over the screen like the galaxy tabs.

a '*' denotes that the app works in split screen but cannot be selected from the list, it must be activated first then another added as the second screen, therefore two apps with the '*' will not be able to be paired together.

Mine had Twitter in it from the time the multi view was installed.

I had to press edit and drag the twitter icon from there.

Splanner and calculator do not work in split screen.

Thanks for the info. Bewildering why they would leave out calculator and S-planner from split screen. Two apps that would seem to benefit most from it.

Maybe Samsung will add more apps at future firmware updates.

Anyone know if there is a multi-screen api that devs can use to make compatible apps? It would be epic to get tapatalk and Skype added to the list.
