Increase Your Multitasking Workflow with C-Floating Windows

Increase Your Multitasking Workflow with C-Floating Windows

Technology has put life on the fast track. Lazy, relaxed days have turned into hurricanes of work and productivity, as people strive to do as much as possible in as little time as possible. As such, the tendency to do multiple things at a time, or “multitasking” has become quite popular. Most desktop operating systems offer native multitasking, but less so in mobile operating systems, due to various limitations. However, further evolving has made mobile devices more than capable of running simultaneous tasks, and while the AOSP doesn’t have windowed multitasking yet, features such as multi-window and floating apps are available in OEM-provided and custom ROMs.

To bring this feature to the masses, XDA Recognized Developer astoncheah has developed a multitasking solution that carries out its functions without needing to flash a custom ROM. The solution, titled C-Floating, allows you to open apps in “floating” windows, making them hover over the currently opened app, thus allowing you to interact with multiple apps at a time. C-Floating also allows you to add widgets to the floating panes along with statistical and monitoring tools such as RAM and battery stats.

Head over to the C-Floating application thread to get started with your multitasking workflow. The app is free to download but contains in-app purchases to unlock additional features.
