Use small apps to have 2 or more apps open on the same screen for multitasking on Sony Xperia Z3
Small apps are miniature apps that run on top of other applications on the same screen so you can have two apps live and running at the same time. This enables multitasking and its really easy to do two or more jobs at the same time.
For example, you can have a webpage open showing details of currency exchange rates and then open the Calculator small app on top of it and perform calculations.
You can access your small apps via the favourites bar. Not every app is a small app. You have to download more small apps from Google Play.
