    Samsung and LG have already implemented methods of multi-tasking into their custom android skins. Samsung has a traditional multi-window method, which would be ideal on the One Plus One because of it's large 5.5" screen. It allows the user to run two apps simultaneously and easily share data between the two (similar to Microsoft's Courier Tablet). Q slide acts as an overlay for certain apps, running on top of the main interface. Each app's transparency can be controlled to ensure that the user can still use the main interface. For example, a small calculator or messaging window might appear that "floats" over the main interface. With Android 4.2 Multi-User support was created (specifically for tablets), however some developers have carried this over to phones, and for example, the G2 has a guest mode so people can get into your phone and use it (if you give them the password) without accessing personal information. I was wondering which of these approaches the community would prefer and whether you would like to see multitasking and multi-user support integrated into the next Cyangenmod update

    I wish multi window was on the OPO but has the look of stock android and not touchwiz with some extra CM features integrated in the multi window
