Improving multitasking Android in a simple and effective way
A must for any power-user of Android.
Since its inception, one of the fundamental pillars of the Android platform has been multitasking. The Google platform allows internally, greater operational applications, regardless of user actions. This allows, for example, Spotify download new songs in a playlist automatically or Dropbox upload to their servers perform all the photographs instantly.
Android multitasking opens a world of possibilities
However, the power-users are demanding new features aimed at multitasking and multiple management applications. Some of the most demanded, for example, are floating applications and acceleration of change between applications, two functions that already incorporate some manufacturers (such as Sony or Samsung) but Google still does not natively implemented in the OS.
Fortunately, Google Play Store we can find many applications focused on improving multitasking Android. Some of them are focused on improving the fundamentals of the system (the exchange of applications, background processes, etc.), while others provide a completely new solution.
A perfect example is found in Last App Switcher , a simple utility that facilitates and enhances the exchange between different applications you have open. When Last App Switcher is active, simply tap on a floating icon, or, if configured previously, Google Now- slide up to return to the previous application. Very useful if, for example, working in a text document and need to frequently look up information in the web browser or email.
Switchr operation recalls the exchange of windows Windows 8
Another of the most popular applications for improved multitasking Android is Switchr . Like (Last App Switcher) Switchr focuses on optimizing and improving the exchange of applications, making it more accessible and convenient. Switchr operation is very simple: sliding laterally from the edge of the screen, Switchr allows us to switch between different open applications. Depending on the mode you choose, to slide laterally accede to previous application or, failing that, we will display a menu of multitasking faster. Operation very similar to lateral sliding from nine version, can be performed in iOS to access the previous application and multitasking menu (using 3D Touch).
Going beyond the exchange of applications in Google Play Store we can find two very interesting applications like Side Control and Omni Swipe . Both applications place, a slip-and distance is from the edge of the screen or from one of its Esquinas, a whole set of important applications and utilities. Preconfiguration, both applications allow access to recent notifications, recent apps, bookmarks or small preconfigured folders, in which we can add the applications we use most often for quick and easy access to them.
In addition to streamlining the application switching in Google Play Store are a large number of utilities focused on improving multitasking Android by simultaneous execution of two applications. One is C Floating , which allows small floating windows open any application that execute on our smartphone. This is useful on smartphones with large screens, where multitasking capabilities are outstanding. An example of use: perform calculations at the same time editing a text document.
Finally, a very interesting utility to improve Android’s multitasking Link Bubble Browser . In line with C Floating, this application allows small floating windows display the contents of any link we have in the main application. A practical example: we are viewing the timeline of Twitter and want access to a shared one of our followings link. Tradition would be to tap into it and open it in Chrome browser, or by default-that we set. Instead, with Link Bubble Browser, we can display a floating window-style bubble chat Facebook.
