also xperiacle added app long ago for this called multiwindow plus If i m not wrong for this.
I am one of those who wanted Quad-Multiwindow and Floating-Window natively available as seen on DN3 up to v3.2.1.
Now, to clarify the KitKat 4.4.2 situation and DN3 v5.2 latest release up to toady:
1) Quad-Multiwindow is the feature that doubles the frames of the original Samsung Dual-Multiwindow.
From Multiwindow bar you tap an app and swipe it to the desktop.
Repeat this action 3 times and you get 4 apps in single frame each.
This is possible by installing Multiwindow Plus by Xperiacle.
In DN3 4.3 JellyBean versions it is natively in.
2) Floating-Window is the feature that runs apps in a independent freely positionable and resizable window.
It is the same result to launch the app in a window through Air Command Pen Window feature (longer and tedoious actions though).
From Multiwindow bar you tap an app and automatically it opens in a window on the desktop.
In DN3 4.3 JellyBean versions it is natively in, even if some cosmetic issues were in when the window was minimized.
In DN3 4.4.2 KitKat verisons this feature is no longer available. You get the goal only through AIr Command Pen Window feature and with no
cosmetic issues when window is minimized (bravo E-Team !)
You may install Pen Window Manager by Xperiacle. But it is not the same thing.
Once you set an app to open in a window, it will always open in a window.
So my question now is: Floating-Pen Window will be available again also on KitKat DN3 rom?
