OneUI multitasking

SOLVED
Apprentice

Greetings. So OneUI, it's amazing and I like it - especially the gesture controls BUT I need to point out that the multitasking capabilites went down after this update. It takes too many actions to open an app in pop-up or split screen mode - Swipe to Recents > Swipe to the app (usually right) > Click on the Icon > Select the pop-up or split screen option. While I understand why it's imposibile to keep using "Hold Recents to go to split screen" with gesture controls, I don't understand the removal of "Swipe from a top corner to open the app in pop-up" this gesture was my bread and butter for using the Note 9 and now it's gone and instead of a single Swipe now I need to to the agirementioned procedure. Do you plan on returning this options or changing the way multitasking works in OneUI?

"Swipe from a top corner to open the app in pop-up" functionality has been restored via Samsung's own Good Lock app (Woohoo! ...although why they removed it from their stock UI in the first place is beyond me!)

 

Galaxy Store > Good Lock app > Multi Star > Pop-up View Action

I cannot speak behalf of Samsung but I agree that it is wrong change.

I agree on this one. Usually, when I'm in YouTube and I open the internet app using the Edge, the YouTube screen automatically becomes  pop-up to the lower right corner without interrupting the video I was watching. This was my FAVORITE feature. Please bring this back.

Totally agree. I loved the feature where you could just hold the app switcher button and your current app would go into split screen on the top half of the screen. Please bring this back.

Agreed this is a ***** up by Samsung.. I can only imagine that they don't want people like us to but their phones anymore.

I can't find it in the Galaxy Store, it says the app is no longer available, is this only for me?

And downloading it from ApkMirror doesn't work either: http://imgur.com/a/MU58LoK

*****.

Maybe some countries can't get Good Lock?

I'm UK and the YouTuber I mentioned is Canadian so I'm pretty sure those two are OK.

Where are you?

It's ridiculous that Samsung is making us jump through all these hoops to get back functionality that we paid big money for and that they just...REMOVED!
