One of the niftiest features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is its ability to run two apps side-by-side at the same time. While not everyone has been lucky enough to see the feature on their device from the get go, a firmware update has been pushed out by Samsung to enable it. For those who are wondering just which apps support the multi-window feature, here’s a list that members of XDA-Developers have compiled.

The thread starter, Lennyuk, has divided the list into Samsung Apps, Google Apps, and third-party apps. Here are the tested apps:

Samsung Apps

  • ChatON
  • E-mail
  • Gallery
  • Internet
  • Messaging
  • S Note
  • Video Player

Google Apps

  • Chrome
  • Gmail
  • Google Maps
  • Google Talk
  • YouTube

Third-party Apps

  • Facebook
  • Official Twitter app
  • Polaris Viewer

And as for a quick tip, make sure you use Samsung keyboard when you activate the multi-window feature if you don’t want the keyboard to block the bottom screen.

If you’ve been using other apps that support the multi-window feature on Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 10.1, and even the upcoming Japanese variant of the Galaxy S3, that are not listed up there yet, feel free to complete the list by dropping your comments below.
