LG to offer QSlide SDK so that third party apps can use the feature
The QSlide SDK allows developers to build an app with the floating window transparent underneath, so that users can view the background app. Code jockeys can also add the QSlide icon to the notification bar, allowing those using the app to quickly launch the feature.
LG has been including QSlide in many of its new models. Besides the high end LG G2 and LG G Flex models, the feature is also found in the QWERTY equipped LG Optimus F3Q.

Samsung needs to jump on that for multi-window. I would love to be able to use it with all of the apps on my phone. The concept that was shown earlier today has me drooling.

Right! But why don't you root your phone, bro?

I've tinkered with it a little in the past, but I guess I've just never had any serious interest in interacting with my phone that way.

They really should because LG's split view on their G Flex works with all third party apps.
