A great tool for multitasking with open apps in floating windows.
Pros & Cons:
Floating Apps is an excellent tool to keep more apps open at the same time in floating windows and provide a real multitasking experience on Android mobile devices.
The tool comes with more than 40 floating apps, such as Notes, Calculator, Contacts, YouTube, Music Player, etc., that have been set up and ready for use. Besides this, the app allows creating your own floating apps with widgets and URLs.
You can access the floating apps from the main interface of this tool, or more conveniently from the slide-in menu on any home screen.
The beauty of this tool is that the floating apps can be resized and repositioned on the screen, with their sizes and positions saved for next opening. They can also be minimized into floating icons to save the screen space and return to its window size with just a tap.
Among the floating apps, YouTube was recently removed from this tool in order to comply with Google's terms and conditions. It has however been reinstated after its minimize button is removed from this tool by default. Understandably, Google wants you to watch ads when running YouTube without minimizing it. In any way, the tool does allow you to create your own floating apps with URLs or widgets like the examples here and here.
Since Android does not have a taskbar like Windows, Floating Apps includes an Active Windows icon that lists all open and minimized apps in one place.
The free version of this tool is supported by full-screen ads that occasionally show up when you access a floating app. The paid version does away with ads.
