Find Apps that Work with the Galaxy Note 2 Multi Window Feature

If you haven’t heard, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a pretty nifty feature that only recently started to get press. It is called multi-window, and it allows users to use two Android applications at once. How it works is you open up a compatible application and use your recent apps to select another compatible app. Click and drag the icon into the upper or lower slot and you’ll have two apps open simultaneously. Of course, the problem is knowing which apps actually allow for this.

This is a problem that XDA Recognized Developer Lennyuk is looking to answer. Lennyuk has started a thread where users an report which applications work and which do not with this new feature. In the beginning it was only Samsung apps that could use multi window. Now, however, this list is a little bit longer. So far, the tested apps that can use the feature include:

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)

Yes, it is a short list. It is expected to grow, however, as app developers update their apps to work with the feature. There may also be more applications, and that’s what Lennyuk is trying to find out with everyone’s help. Something interesting to note (see what we did there), you have to use the Samsung keyboard in multi-window mode. Using any other keyboard will block the entire bottom app.

If you see an app not on the list that’s compatible, or you just want to know more, go to the original thread.
