    After a recent update a little blue tab showed up on the left side of my screen.When I swipe it a blue box with different apps,email comes out.
    This tab blocks part of my screen.It makes it hard to see parts of what I am looking at.
    How can I get rid of this?

    don't know, but with the sidebar on an galaxy s4, you can either disable multi screen, or, at your launcher home page, long press the back button.

    Yeah itl be the s3. you can hide or show it at any time with the back button. When you pull the bar out you can drag two apps onto the screen so its like a split screen :thumbup:

    Its pretty limited in what apps you can use with it so its pretty much useless tbh lol. If u root the phone you can use any app :thumbup:
