Samsung Galaxy Note 2: How to use multi-window

The  Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a really cool feature called multi-window. With multi-window you can do full screen multitasking on the Note 2. A feature that was not available on many previous devices from Samsung. Once you enable multi-window on the Note 2, you have a small ticker at the bottom of your screen which you can scroll through to find the apps you want to open in full-screen mode. Not all apps are supported but works on most anyway - you can try this and see how it works on your device. It is a really cool feature since you have a list of all your apps at the bottom and you can open any one you want to view in full screen by just tapping on the app. This way you can work on many apps at once - you could be writing mail while watching a movie or playing a game. Quite a cool feature on the Galaxy Note 2.
