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.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
