One of the multitasking features of the Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 Edition is called the Multi-Window. Though the feature has been available in Samsung devices for nearly a year; on the new tablet, it works with a number of additional apps --- presently around 18 apps in all, including Facebook and a several Google and Samsung apps.

The Multi-Window feature enables the users of the new Note to run two apps side by side; like YouTube video on one side and Facebook on the other.

The Multi-Window has also been supplemented with a feature called Pen Window, which allows the users to merely draw a box on the screen with the stylus that comes with the new tablet, and select one of seven apps - YouTube, the calculator, your contacts list, the Web browser, the alarm clock, Google's Hangouts, and Samsung's ChatOn - for opening in a new window.

Other than multitasking, the new Note also comes with a My Magazine mode which gives the users personalized highlights, such as news topics of interest, content from their social media feeds, and suggestions on things they can do and see, depending on their present location.
