In Android, you can easily switch in between apps but you cannot run them all at once. Now, what if you like to multitask? Is there any other way for you to use your Android to run or load two or more apps? Well, here’s a neat little trick that you might want to check out.
Method One – Make use of floating apps
For now, this is the easiest way that you can do to simultaneously run or load your Android apps. In this method, you will need to make use of floating apps instead of your native apps. Like, for example, you can use a floating calculator while working on your documents on Google Docs. You can also opt to use a floating camera instead of taking pictures using your phone or tablet’s native camera application.
The main advantage of using floating apps is that they are designed to always float on top of your other apps so you can do multiple things at once like watching a video while checking your emails. You can even take photos while browsing your feed on Instagram.
Speaking of which, here are a few good examples of floating apps that you can download and install on your Android tablet or smartphone – Floating Browser Flux, DicePlayer, Hovernote and AirCalc On-Screen Calculator.
Method Two – Use a multitasking app
The Multitasking app is a free application that you can use to perform multiple tasks on Android. This app basically flaunts a suite of tools and mini-apps that you can readily use and open in separate windows. The only downside to this method is that you cannot use your own apps. You need to use the pre-loaded tools and apps that you can find in Multitasking or else, this method won’t work.
Fortunately, this app has almost everything that you need. It has a browser, calendar, calculator, camera, currency converter, image gallery, file explorer, music player, video player, paint, note, recorder, stopwatch, map, compass and a whole lot more. You can also drag and resize your app windows. Needless to say, this method works great especially if you like to multitask.
