Split screen: taking advantage of the entire panel of your mobile
Today mobile phones offer increasingly large screens. Especially in the high-end, it seeks to offer a panel that has not only a great resolution, but more and more inches and fewer frames. It happens on Android with devices like Galaxy Note or the Huawei Mate, and on iOS with terminals like the new one iPhone XS Max. All of them are high-quality devices for consuming multimedia content. In addition, when it comes to being productive, they can be an extra, since there is more screen space to work.
But all of these devices are also well suited for a function that is rarely used and is ‘inherited’ from computers. The split screen allows you to open two applications at the same time to use them at the same time. In this way, data can be consulted on one half of the screen while filling in the other. Or you may be reading an article while listening to YouTube in the background.
Whatever the use, it is one of the functions underdog from Android. And how can it be put to more use? Speeding up the process to activate it. Specially in Android 9 Pie the process has been modified in such a way that it is much more cumbersome. What would be a better solution? Have a shortcut for which you only have to press once, as seen in this video:
How to use split screen apps with a shortcut in an instant
Split-screen creator is an application that can be downloaded for free from the application store of Google. It is used to create a shortcut that suddenly opens two applications on split screen, without having to go through the manual process. Just open it once, choose two applications, create the shortcut, and place it on your desktop. From then on, pressing it will open them instantly.
You shouldn’t even be confined to using two different apps, instead you can open the same twice. This is something that works great with Chrome and his ability to open two windows. Also, the shortcut has icon support, so the look can be customized.
