    Small apps

    Small apps are miniature apps that can run on top of other applications on the same screen, to enable multi-tasking. 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 open the small apps window from the recently used applications screen. To download more small apps, go to Google Play™.
