Switching From iPhone to Android: How To Multi-Task in Android

February 13, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

In Android 4.0 and above Multi-tasking is a bit different. It also works a bit better. Today we are going to show you how you can easily switch between apps on your Android device. Now we’ve got a video below for you, but there is something I forgot to mention in there. On stock Android devices, like the Nexus, you use the recents button which is on the right side to get to your recent apps. On the Galaxy S3 in the video, I just held down the home button to get there.


So it’s pretty easy to multi-task in Android 4.0 and above, I might even say its better. Although there is that slight lag with multi-tasking on Sense 4+ devices, unfortunately. This completes our Guide for Switching from iPhone to Android. If there’s anything we forgot or should add to the guide, please let us know in the comments below and we’ll be sure to add it.
