A company called Tieto has posted a YouTube video showing their multiwindowing for Android concept.
This is the fourth entrant in what is surprisingly becoming an actual thing!
See screensnaps and video after the break.
This looks as if it’s an app. At least it’s selected from an icon in the app launcher. This makes me wonder if end users could eventually buy this at the Google Play Store.
I don’t know what hardware this is. I’ve asked at YouTube.
None of the apps demonstrated were modified:
A lot of floating buttons on the right side:
Although the ability to tile is mentioned, it’s not demonstrated.
Also not mentioned is the CPU horsepower and necessary RAM.
There are a lot of buttons there. This seems to be a mix of all other methods. This is all tending towards more complexity when what’s needed is pure simplicity.
I think Rockchip’s method is a good start. Users have to learn only two simple gestures.
But the problem is modality. Switching between live windows and actions on windows. That still seems like old thinking.
