I have a Galaxy S4 for Sprint. I'm trying to use the multi-window function but to no avail. When I drag down the notification tab and go to hit multi-window, I can't turn it on or off. When I access the same multi-window setting through the display panel I see the check box next to multi-window is unchecked but when I try and check it I have no luck. Anyone have a similar issue?
i can enable multi window on my Sprint GS4, only problem is all checking this appears to do is enable the side toolbar with application icons. That's the only thing I notice that's different when I enable multi window. What is it supposed to do?
When it's activated you should see a little half-moon tab on the side of the screen (left or right side). I keep it disabled on my phone and have turned off a ton of stuff. I just now turned it on from the drop down and noticed the half-moon tab on the side of the screen.
One of those things that are just nice to have if you need it.... I've used it a few times, it comes in handy from time to time. I'd rather have it and not need it
same here. i actually just started using it after initially turning it off and forgetting about it. comes in handy for times when i'm doing emails and want to look at my calendar at the same time, or if i'm in the browser and want to make an s note for something, copying and pasting between two different apps is also a lot easier when you can see both apps at the same time. i don't use it a lot, but i like having the feature.
for rooted users another app that makes multi window even more useful is multi window manager. it allows you to use other apps that aren't natively supported in the multi window panel.
I notice you are on Sprint. Are others on Sprint here having problems like this? I mention the provider, because VZW likes to disable features on their phones (I don't have blocking mode, for example). So, maybe this is some odd Sprint "feature?"
