Google designs Android N for tablets

We are already seeing with the preview of Android N in which direction the new version of our beloved Android will go, with varied changes for a few things among which the multiventana stands out.

And the truth is that it is appreciated. Google made the leap to tablets with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, exclusive version for this platform and later on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwitch The development of mobile phones was combined with that of tablets. Since then it seems that little attention has been paid to tablets, something that may be about to change.

When manufacturers get ahead

<p>It is not the first time it happens, nor the first time we named it, but the multiventana on Android did not start being a thing of Google but manufacturers such as Samsung or LG began to allow the screen to be divided into two applications that were running at the same time. Anyway, <strong>Android is the union of all manufacturers</strong>, not just pure Android. Be together, not the same.</p>
<p>This was undoubtedly a great advantage for their tablets compared to others such as even the Nexus could be <strong>for those looking to work</strong> With their devices, they could be searching for things on Google or chatting while writing in a Word document.</p><div class='code-block code-block-4' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

One of the features of the recent iPad Pro by Apple is the ability to have this window divided and before those terminals with Windows had this option that exists from Windows 7 and came to tablets with Windows 8.

Since Google did not see the opportunity until recently that they started to include the multi-window in Android M and now it seems that it will reach everyone for mobile phones and tablets during this 2016 by the hand of Android N.

The multiventana finally official

It's time for Android N and with this version, for now still in development, the multiventana comes to Android phones and tablets so you can split the screen into two to place two applications allowing you to watch a video while doing other things, find things and chat, play and watch your favorite series …

Although it is logically more profitable it is in the field of tablets to improve productivity, although Google still lacks enough to achieve a well adapted system for tablets.

In the multi-window of Samsung we can also see the usefulness of shrink an application in what is properly a window like the ones we are used in desktop operating systems. Precisely this custom with the desktop as it can be with Windows, Linux or Mac OS leads us to be more productive in terminals with these systems.

Android, behind the rest on tablets

Let's be frank, an Android tablet goes pearls to to play to some game beyond Candy Crash where a short screen stays small and is also perfect for watch multimedia content which was what the Galaxy View of 18.4 ″ tried to succeed, a portable television. Can't you be productive? Yes, you can, but there are better applications dedicated to it.

Instead iOS has a clear differentiation between mobile and tablet applications so developers take advantage of it to create applications dedicated to tablets of much better quality than one whose responsive design should look good on both a small 4.5 "mobile and a 10" tablet.
