Floating Pen Window on any App with Pen Window Manager
Posted October 21, 2013 at 05:30 am by Will Verduzco
Not too long ago, we featured a method posted by XDA Senior Member soloilmeglio that allows Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users to add Floating Pen Window functionality to any app. While immensely useful, adding applications was unfortunately a rather cumbersome task, requiring the modification of a certain CSC file. Thankfully, XDA Recognized Developer xperiacle has now created an application that does all the work for you, enabling you to add Floating Pen Window functionality to any app with just a few clicks.
Aptly titled Pen Window Manager, xperiacle’s application makes the whole process a point and click affair. You obviously have to be rooted, with BusyBox installed. But aside from that, this application installs like any other standard app. Once installed, all you have to do is select which apps you’d like to work with the Floating Pen Window function, save, and reboot.
While this app will work perfectly for the vast majority of people, there are a few caveats. Mainly, if you previously edited your others.xml or features.xml file, you may have introduced errors into the files. This will then cause the Pen Window Manager app to not function properly. If this applies to you and you are experiencing problems, try restoring your original files before retrying the app.
If you’ve been longing for an easier way to add applications to the Floating Pen Window function, make your way to the application thread and give this a shot!
