    Hi!

    I just wanna share my concept on the split-screen (snap view) feature on windows phone. I took the functionality from Windows 8.1, and it seems like a pretty neat feature to add to the windows phone as well.

    This can be accessed in the app switcher by tapping-and-holding the second app:

    With the second app on hand, you can either position it on top or bottom of the current app:
    untitled-1-2-.pnguntitled-1-3-.pnguntitled-1-4-.png

    You can drag the split-screen to adjust the size of the apps, very similar to that found in the desktop OS:
    untitled-1-5-.png

    The options bar at the bottom will be that of the last interacted app. And the apps can be dismissed/separated in the app switcher also.

    And oh, here is my concept video on how it might work:


    All comments are welcome. :)

    Apps should be responsive. Probably this is a little better (portrait and landscape):

    On a bigger display like the 1520's, there's almost no reason why a snap view implementation wouldn't be useful

    Yes, this seems better. Thanks! :D

    And btw, the split-screen slider supposedly follows the color accent of the phone. Otherwise, the images are great
