PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Oh multitasking. That staple of computing that got thrown out the window with many modern smartphones. We got some rudimentary thing in its place - but even as multitasking on phone and tablets improves, its user-visible side remains cumbersome. Windows 8 has a neat implementation, and now it's time Android follows in it footsteps.

actual application switching is still cumbersome and restrictive.


Really? Hold down home button for 2 seconds then pick the task. Wow, that's really cumbersome.

I really want proper multitasking with multi-window on Android.


On a tablet? I guess. On a phone? It's worthless, no matter the implementation.
