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.

Anything to further real multi-app multitasking on mobiles is a plus, imo. I use the CRAP out of multiwindow mode on my Galaxy Note II and it works wonderfully for all but a handful of programs. I have edited my rom so it allows any app to be used and very few ever break. Mostly games and a few poorly designed programs with set resolution limits that refuse to scale.

I REALLY wish Apple would add it for iOS. The iPads, with their ridiculously high resolution screens, would handle 2-4 apps perfectly well.
