Most mobile operating systems and even desktop operating systems are gradually moving away from the windowed model. Yet, constantly bobbing between applications doesn’t really fit every scenario, especially with the screen real estate of tablets. However, it’s possible to have floating apps that could sit on top whatever full screen work you’re doing, though not officially supported by Google. Thus, floating calculators, web browsers and even a video player have been cooked up, but there was no simple notepad application. Given the tablet’s rise in educational settings, and Android’s popularity with the more computer oriented, that felt like quite an omission. Not being able to take notes about an e-book without bouncing to another full screen app feels weird.
