    [APP REQ] Split-screen app for running 2 apps on screen at once.

    I often find myself switching back and forth between email and web, and wuld like to know if there is an app that would let me keep both on screen at the same time?

    I know the new dual-screen Kyocera uses something like that, but was wondering if there was anything similar for the Xoom. Especially with the size of the Xoom-screen, I really don't need apps to run the full width.

    I was thinking about something like this before I picked up my Xoom. Pretty sure there is nothing like this yet but I really hope a developer picks up the idea.

    The Android framework itself would have to be modified extensively to make this possible. It wouldn't be do-able from an app.

    The Kyocera Echo has the functionality for it, but you are right, they had to do some changes to the Android core in order for it to work. Even though both apps are visible on-screen, only one is actually "running".

    It would be cool for web browsing and email. I don't see much of a use for it other than that.

    I would dearly love to see such a thing.
