4 Mobile Apps to Use If You’re a Multitasker

Wondering how to cope with a workload and find the time to enjoy your favorite games on platforms like Vulkan Vegas? As such, you have to multitask. Although there are many people who advocate against multitasking – it cannot be helped. The good news is that there is no need to beat your brains in doing several tasks at a time — there are mobile apps that can help you get the job done if you are a multitasker. 

Split Screen Launcher

The Android platform has an app that allows you, by default, to do a split-screen phone experience. A split screen means you can split your screen into two, and each of them shows a different app. Think of it as a desktop computer where you have two applications running at the same time.

What can you do with it? Here are some examples: 

 

  • Listen to Spotify and read at the same time.
  • Watch YouTube and scroll on social media at the same time.

Essentially, you can launch two applications and make them work simultaneously without closing the other. Spit Screen Launcher is one of the most popular apps that can do this. It gained popularity because of the straightforward user interface. The app also allows you to create a shortcut. 

With the shortcut, you can easily tap on your favorite applications and launch them together. This process or feature is great if you have habits. For example, if you are used to watching Netflix and reading stuff on Reddit at the same time, you can create these shortcuts for easy access. 

Overlays

Overlays is an app that allows you to immediately switch between applications without closing the other. What it does is enable you to quickly access important lists by tapping the home key of your phone twice. The list will then appear as a small window, which you can expand. 

So, in what ways can you use it? Here are some examples: 

 

  • You are using an app and need to provide a quick answer; launch your list and copy-paste from there.
  • You are playing a game, and you have to make a decision from a list, like blackjack. Use the app and then use your blackjack cheat sheet without leaving the game.

 

The great thing about this app is that the list you launch does not completely cover the screen. The mini-screen or list also has an X button that you can tap should you want to close it. 

Lynket Browser

As the term implies, this app is a browser, and its main function is to make it easier for users to have several browser tabs open at the same time. You can use Lynket as your default browser instead of Safari or Chrome. 

 

What is special about it? Take a look at these things: 

 

  • Each link you click opens on a different browser — you will not lose the page you came from.
  • If you closed a window by accident, the browser has a record of that in your history.
  • It can load buttons in the background to avoid distraction.

The browser uses Android standard protocol. As such, it is the best match for Android users. Finally, Lynket Browser can take data from other browsers, which means you can copy your browsing history from another browser like Google Chrome. 

Floating Apps Free

Floating Apps is a similar tool to the first one we discussed. Some examples of the things it can do are: 

 

  • Watch on a small screen while searching on Google.
  • Use a calculator while surfing the net.
  • Find a contact while writing a note.

The thing with this app is that it needs some setting up. Do not worry, as the instructions are easy to follow. What you will love about this app is that it allows you to resize the windows you use for your multitasking activity.

The app offers a lot of configuration options. You can also make the apps appear like “windows” on your Android screen. We can say that this is one of the best multitasking apps, if not the best, out there.

Multitasking is the process of doing several tasks at the same time. Although there is data proving that it can be inefficient, it depends on what things you are doing simultaneously. For example, there is nothing wrong with watching a movie and playing a slot machine simultaneously. 

Similarly, you can speak to your boss while working on an Excel sheet. There are also other things you can do, like uploading products on your dropshipping store and then researching about something while the upload process is going on. At the end of the day, multitasking works as long as the tasks you select do not interfere with each other.
