Run Multiple Small Apps on the Sony Xperia T and TX
One of the coolest OEM-specific customizations found on newer Sony Xperia devices is the Small Apps feature. It allows you to run a small app atop your currently running application, making for a much more powerful multitasking interface. In fact, we’ve written about various additional Small Apps created by our community members in the past, as well as how to get the functionality back once you’ve gone to an AOSP-derived ROM.
Now, XDA Senior Member kongaz2 has figured out a way to get multiple small apps to run at the same time on the Sony Xperia T and TX, sort of similar to what we saw earlier on the Galaxy Note 3 when Senior Member soloilmeglio figured out how to get any app to work with Samsung’s Pen Window functionality.
To get started on your own Xperia T or TX, you will first need to be on a deodexed ROM. Then you simply flash the update from a custom recovery, and you’re good to go. Make sure you have a Nandroid backup handy just in case anything goes wrong, though.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
