Verizon has just started selling its own Galaxy Note 2 version, and it looks like consumers are already asking Samsung questions about the future of the device, particularly about the multi-window feature. One user who is apparently interested in seeing Gmail and YouTube in multi-window on the phablet contacted the company via Twitter asking why these two apps can’t be used in such a way.
Samsung answered his question revealing that the two apps will soon get multi-window support, without actually detailing launch plans for a software update that would bring such functionality.
In time, probably more apps will get such support from Samsung. But if you have purchased, or are planning to get a Galaxy Note 2 from Verizon you should be aware that right now there aren’t that many multi-window-friendly apps to choose from.
However, Droid-Life also points out that one particular app downloaded from the Play Store, Total Commander, already populates the list of apps that can be used with multi-window after is install. That seems to indicate that developers could offer multi-windows support in their apps, although that still remains to be confirmed by Samsung.
While you wait for more apps to support multi-window, let us know what apps you’d like to use in such a manner on the Galaxy Note 2!

I like to see every single apps on the multi-view feature. Right now!!!
I’d like on-screen multi-tasking; period… So far no news from AT&T on when they will roll the firmware upgrade.
dont get your hopes up…the tmo variant(which came out earlier) didnt even see it yet
Now if there was an easy way to get the Verizon crapware off the GN2, I would really be a happy camper
I think you can root and get rid of those things. The advantage of Android is that it can be easily rooted.
You may not actually be able to delete them, but you can hide them. Out of sight, out of mind. Like the NFL app, several Verizon apps … gone from my Note 2. Hit the menu button while viewing apps. Find HIDE on the pop up.
Any app can run in the Multi-window its not dependent on operator or Samsung just root and you can run a few addons that will give you control of what apps appear in the list.
Assistant or everfriends, Camera, camcorder, Google maps, Netflix, mobo player,
d i radio, tune in radio. That’s just a few of the most important ones for me.
korean version can add 3rd party apps on multi windows….
