Top 5 Best Multi-Tasking Apps for Android Smartphones

The Android smartphones have given us a way to do multitasking with all the apps, and that’s it is an incredibly powerful mobile OS. However, most of these apps don’t run side-by-side, as they should be. Though, there are some of the smartphones that have optimized for these kinds of true multitasking features, like the Samsung and LG’s Multi-Window features on their flagship devices. Since, most of the Android device is capable of offering that features; it’s just the matter of software enhancements. Therefore, we have created a list of Android that offers multi-tasking features; below you can find the top 5 best multitasking apps for Android smartphones.

HoverChat

HoverChat

The app has been rebranded, which was previous known as Ninja SMS. It is a popular SMS/MMS app that applies the same usability scheme that we see on the Chat Heads in Facebook’s Messenger app. When a message comes, you’ll see a little bubble popping up on your smartphone’s screen. The Bubble would have the contact picture too, so you could identify the difference when there are many messages are opened at a time. Tap the bubble to read the message there and then, as well as a reply, or you could either drag the bubble to the corner you like and do what you were doing. And answer it later, or just dismiss it completely. What’s more interesting is that you can have the same functionality for other IMs too, including the likes of Viber and WhatsApp.

Pie Control

Pie Control

This is an app that is a default floating menu (PIE) on the custom Paranoid Android, and those who are familiar with that ROM would know that it is an intuitive and useful feature to have it. All thanks to the demand from power users all over the tech community, we now have a separate app on the Google Play Store that offers the same user experience, it’s called Pie Control. Now even if you’re not using the custom Paranoid Android ROM, you can get the PIE feature through this app. The app offers you a quick control to certain apps, although, it’s not like quick settings. With this app, you can drag out the Pie controls from any edge and access the functions like, app drawer, take notes, as well as access the supported apps. All this is done without leaving the current windows. Amazing, right!

Link Bubble

Link Bubble

This isn’t exactly a multitasking tool, but rather a great efficiency tool to make your browsing needs fulfill at times. It lets you load the hyperlinks in the background, which means you can continue the work that is going on in the window. You can get back to the link, by tapping on the floating bubble. This is very helpful in scenarios, like when you’re browsing on apps like Twitter, Facebook and Google+ and don’t want to leave your timeline, well, then Link Bubble is a must have app for you.

Edge: Quick Actions

Edge - Quick Actions

We are maybe going off the rail here, but this app is an honorable mention because of its ability to switch the apps without a sweat. It is so handy that you will feel like multitasking whenever you use it, as you save so much time and isn’t multitasking is about saving time eventually.

It would show you customizable settings and toggles on the home screen, as well as you can add up to 5 most recently used apps. So, you can call this app your ever ready sidebar.

Though, you can get these under the recent apps and Quick settings buttons separately, but the combination of both makes it very minimal.

MultiTasking

As the name suggests, this app is a multitasking tool for your Android device, available from Google Play Store. You can set up this app, as a swipeable sidebar menu, similar to the navigation drawer that appears on the screen for most of the devices. Once you open the app, you’ll have plenty of options to choice from, as the apps would appear as the floating windows.

Multitasking

Remember you can open multiple windows at once and then choose from a wide selection of a video player, browser, file explorer, calendar, and many more. Though, the only thing that it restricts is that you won’t be able to use the personal apps, only the ones that are supplied by the app. You can buy the PRO version to get rid of the pop-up ads or can install the Adblock Plus. Either way, the app is a good combination of useful app functions.
