Developers attempt to incorporate multi-window into OmniROM


A lucky few might soon be able to have the ease of use that the ‘multi-window’ feature brings along. First introduced by Samsung TouchWiz, the feature has managed to catch the fancy of many.

Fast rising on the popularity chart, 3rd party firmware OmniROM might soon have multi-window as a standard feature. With smartphone screens rapidly increasing in size, it is only practical to make use of the extra real estate that’s available. Although a select few have tried their hand at offering better usage of the entire screen area (Paranoid Android’s Halo being a prime example), none have been as widely accepted as Samsung’s multi-window feature. However, what folks at OmniROM are attempting is in a way distinct from Samsung’s version as you will see in the video below.

With extensive testing and debugging going on, it perhaps won’t be too long before OmniROM users get a taste of a stable multi-window experience. With the Find 5 being as dev-friendly as it is, it might be one of the first to get this update, which means I would be able to give this a go!
