If you happen to be a fan of split-window mode in Android Nougat, there is a good chance that may find this nifty tools App that I have been working on.

What it does? 3 things as of now:

#1 Provide an onscreen shortcut to toggle split-screen
#2 Quickly launch any new App in split-screen mode through a floating mini App drawer.
#3 Mirror an App!

YES! You can run two Windows of an App, two windows of almost any App on a phone but MANY windows of an App on tablet, as seen on the screenshots.

The set of tools can be accessed by swiping from right edge of the screen.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

* The App is in 'Alpha' version, very 'experimental' in nature. Please keep that in mind while you review the App. Genuinely positive review will definitely fasten the development. ;)
* The current version of the App is designed ONLY for split-screen mode. However, there is no hard restriction placed, you can play around but expect bugs/unexpected behaviour if you use the App in 'picture-in-picture mode' or 'freeform mode'
* If you want to provide some detailed feedback or have query, consider posting onto this XDA Thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-android-7-0-nougats-split-window-t3454416

HAVE CONCERNS FOR THE ACCESSIBILITY PERMISSION?

This App requires two Accessibility Permissions, while they are sensitive, this App absolutely requires them by design to provide an balanced UX and Functionality. If you don't like/want to grant permission, please DO NOT DOWNLOAD and leave a negative review, may be some other App of mine in future will be built to your liking. :)

That being said, neither I nor the App has any interest in misusing the permissions, I am a recognized developer at xda-developers.com, I develop things out of interest and my enthusiasm towards technology. And it gives me great joy to see my App running on random users across the world, the App which took countless hours to build on my computer.

Great work team
Well even when I first got to know about split screen while I was using Samsung I wondered why not same screen on both sides and great u made it... It was like a couple of years ago. Allah version working wonders.i bet ur perfect ths app
Mersad Ghadiri review Mersad Ghadiri
Great
The way it works is better than what google did with it it's great that i can chose any app rather than running that app in recent apps. It's a bit laggy on nexus 5x but it's alpha so no complain . Great work dev.
Bradley Renaker review Bradley Renaker
Great job
Would like to see a better way of getting to split screen. But it works great. A tad laggy, but for an alpha. Wow!

Won't work
I get that "because an app is obscuring a permission request" message so it doesn't work on my Pixel C

Update Please ?

Works great for me except app drawer
The app works great except in the app drawer. I have over 600 apps and the time it takes to open is ridiculous. Not really a problem since I can just open them from the home screen, but can I suggest using a caching method to present the apps the launcher is aware of while it scans for new and removed apps? This would speed up apparent performance drastically. This app is also great for Freeform Window mode and works perfect out of the box!

Good app
Can't seem to get chrome to mirror, other apps seem to work well, but when I select Chrome as the app of choice to mirror, it it flickers, lags and jitters and just sends me to recent apps. Other than that, very nice app. Other stuff that I'm sure will be great if you can force apps like Pokemon Go to work in split screen & maybe a nicer material UI change. Great job non the less, but please fix the Chrome problem on my Nexus 6p

Edit #2: by adding the alternative ways to activate it as an option, I meant allowing the user to click on something in the app that we can toggle. How come the Play Store and Settings can't be used but they can be in multi window mode? Edit: Can you make it so it's easier/alternative ways to get the tools from this app without having to swipe from the right? Like, a floating button or a persistent notification?

Too Buggy
So, I like the interface... But the buttons require multiple taps and even then it only randomly engages. Second, there is way too much effort involved in order to quickly launch a native Nougat feature. Pass till it gets out of Alpha or just enable the feature yourself if u have Nougat.
Karlo Coronel review Karlo Coronel
Awesome but bugs understandable
Great app, good intentions. But a choice of moving the swipe detection to the left would be awesome because I have the glovebox app for my shortcut of apps so it interferes & also when in landscape the nav bar & the swipe of the app are in direct correlation with each other. Can't wait for the final product!

Great but still a bit buggy
I've given 5 stars cuz I think it's in experimental version right now and I hope u allow us to run 2 YouTube videos at the same time. If u think I'm mad then let me tell u that sometimes I view the description of a video while watching another video cuz the description might have a link I need.
