Efficient multitasking will soon come to mobile devices as a new solution was introduced by XDA-recognized developer astoncheah. The developer made an app as a solution for Android without the need of a custom ROM.
When your Internet connection is not as fast as you’d like it to be and you’re browsing through some links but you also need to do other things on your smartphone, then you need a browser that has the capability to multi-task with you. Some lightweight browsers like Now Browser or Javelin have the ability to do that and another one that you can add to your options is Flynx, even though it is still in Beta mode.
It seems like Link Bubble's "background loading" idea is catching on, at least on non-mainstream Android browsers. Javelin Browser, the rather curious gesture-based browser we encountered last March, is just one of the few to add this functionality, boldly calling it a "true multitasking" feature.
Chris Lacy, the same developer who has brought you Action Launcher, has been a very busy body. He has just released an updated version of his new Link Bubble app, sporting a slew of interesting features. And to celebrate the occasion, he is even throwing in a limited time discount for the pro version of the app.
Here is yet another floating icon, multitasking app that shows a bit of promise. Search Now puts the ability to do web or even app searches right under your fingertips, no matter what app you're in. And it's even quite configurable.
There will always be times when you wished you had almost instant access to an app shortcut, setting, or other functionality wherever you are, without having to leave the current app. Sidebar Launcher tries to fill that need by providing some nifty multi-tasking abilities, accessible with a simple swipe from the side.
With larger devices like the LG G Flex, multi-window utility is an option many take advantage of. By splitting the screen in two (figuratively, we’re not cutting things in half, here), we can get a snippet of multiple things without having to navigate between apps. Fun and functional, some are still in the dark about how this all works, and why it’s one of the coolest features on the G Flex.
Ever since its incarnation, one of Android's crowning achievements is its ability to multitask or have multiple apps truly running at the same time. While Android does have a built-in way to switch between those apps, OmniROM believes it can do even better and has thus started work on OmniSwitch.
Just when you thought you had your fill of multitasking utilities for the day, XDA hits you again with another power tool. This time, the new APPoint (yes, that's how it's spelled) multitasking app doesn't exactly let you switch between open apps. It does, however, help you launch your favorite apps from any screen, without having to go back to the homescreen.
If the “recent tabs” button for your Android device isn't’t getting the job done for you, a new app named Switchr may be just what you need. Switchr takes the task switching functionality and moves it away from a static button and places it on the sides of the screen.
