Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers.

Sprint Galaxy Note II Gets Multi Window Mod, Adds All Apps
One of the more unique features of the Samsung Galaxy Note II is the Multi Window feature. If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s a built in part of TouchWiz where users can run two apps at once. The first takes up the top half of the screen, and the second is the bottom.
It was a nifty feature, except for one issue: The number of compatible apps was severely limited. This was solved for the international Note II. Now the Sprint Galaxy Note II has a solution too.
XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has released a similar mod on the Galaxy Note II on Sprint. Unlike the prior mod, this mod automatically adds all of your applications to the Multi Window feature automatically. No picking and choosing, it all goes in there.
Sprint has released an update to add the Multi Window function natively, but this mod actually isn’t for that. Users will need to be running a deodexed version of the VPALJC stock ROM along with the Multi Window mod. Just flash it in recovery, and you’re good to go. Users can likely expect this mod to be ported to the new update eventually.

And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
