    You've got all the news you need-- there's no true multitasking on WP10 either and I dont think we need such a feature in this locked-down OS anyway :) . if you want to do everything, switch to Android. Trust me, you'll be the one happier if you can use Android to its full potential.

    Quick off-topic - does that messy cluttered status-bar on Android make anyone else want to puke?
    Seriously on every single Android phone that I had in the past, I never left more than 1 icon to remain on top, even when I was running some ram booster apps I disabled the icon so it wouldn't clutter the status bar :P

    Android is certainly one of the worst nightmares for people with OCD!

    Here's me adding up my total on a small calculator app while checking off items on Wunderlist.
    But at checkout you can see a running total as items are processed. So just put the least important items in your cart first and most important last. Then at checkout when the running total approaches your budget (or net worth if not into budgeting), just stop. [/glass is half full]

    But if I can do that before I even get to the register how much more beneficial is that? I can do my budget while I'm shopping. Don't make excuses for us not to have features that could be useful and quite frankly are a little old now. We should be able to do these types of things on WP or maybe this experimental year with Android has showed me a little more than I expected.

    But as I can see just from the few responses here you guys are fine with having things the way they are and that's fine.

    These examples of this 'great' feature look clunky and unnecessary. Either I'm watching a video or I'm doing something else. I mean how are you going to edit a Word document when a video takes half the screen.... where does the keyboard go!

    Now with Continuum with dual screens, WM10 will likely permit two apps to run in a usable way, but in 99.9% of cases with such a small screen, this is a pointless feature.

    Every other Android user complains about phone batteries that run out half way through the day. Uncontrolled multi-tasking = using lots of battery. Which is why iOS and Windows have managed ways for apps to multi-task without burning the battery. And yes, that means not having silly little floating windows!

    I was just giving an example but since you asked...here you go. Not to mention that some keyboards are even resizable and the video window can be resized. My point is that there are things that can be done simultaneously and this is on a 5.1" phone. Obviously you guys only find the negative in things. uploadfromtaptalk1440683444990.jpg

    Here's the thing. You can choose exactly what you want and don't want to show up in the status bar.You can have as clean as you want it to be.uploadfromtaptalk1440684632485.jpg

    Everything that's more cluttered than the windows phone one is bad. I couldn't live with it.

    Good thing you decide how cluttered to make it.

    Or are you suggesting a new method of suicide?

    Nope, I have the choice of knowing what all is actually going on.
