How to get Note Edge-like multitasking on any Android smartphone

How to get Note Edge-like multitasking on any Android smartphone
One of the big differences between Android and iOS is the different way the two systems handle multitasking. While Apple's solution will essentially freeze any app that is not currently on-screen, Android will often actually try to run the apps in the background, so long as they don't take up too much of the system's resources. In its vanilla state, Android doesn't really turn this into a full-blown multitasking advantage, but many manufacturers have made use of it in the form of split-screen functionality. In fact, Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge is probably the first phone that comes to mind when one is thinking “Android multitasking”, as its Edge panel allows users to quickly and seamlessly switch between apps.

Well, don't feel green with envy just yet! An app from the Play Store may bring you just that type of functionality, even if your phone isn't of the curved kind. Check out the slideshow below to see how you can get Edge-like multitasking in a few simple steps!

So, there you go – a fully customizable multitasking experience – have at it!

the beauty of Sammy's touchwiz get to enjoy and explore different functionalities which other OEMs "neglect " with claimants of "lag/gimmicks" but end up giving same functionality later on.. eg multitasking. . I already enjoy this natively ^note 4 user •Bm ™

Well Mr Fanboy. If Samcrap would give the possibility to uninstall all those useless features and just keep the one we want we would be happy. Try to run vannila android on any Samsung product not only your phone will be faster but you will experience less bugs. Now as i said before.. just give us the option to uninstall them whitout having to root and you will have a winner here. The S6 ( beside lots of quality problem thats make lots of return ) is an amazing piece of hardware but its the software thats not thats great. Same for the note series.
