Multi-window mode in "lollipop" Android

  WARNING : from Kitkat (4.) don't upgrade to Lollipop Android (5.) ! I've done it and my "flash"  browsers on my smartphone don't work as well as they did before...don't try now to go back to Kitkat : too dangerous.

follow the steps...

SUBJECT : ANDROID UPDATE / smartphones galaxy note 3 and 4

Lollipop Androïd is going to replace Kitkat Androïd...

and I want to make use of the multi-window mode when visiting Justlearnchinese.com website...

1 - Enable the multi-window mode : press the "back" key at least one second ( below the screen, bottom of your device, at the right of the central button )

2 - Open two same windows ( both of them in Internet Explorer browser, the same lesson ! )

how ?
move the Internet Explorer icon
from the side bar to the main screen.
do it twice.
Copy and paste this justlearnchinese.com address
into each address bar
(2 address bars because 2 windows)
Go to your lesson, twice.

3 -  to make the popup floating (third) window appear, click quickly the icon of another browser in the multi-window mode side bar ( Chrome browser for instance )

   in this third window, you could insert       http://ce.linedict.com/dict.html#/cnen/search

     reduce this third floating window -><-
     (click the round handle of this window ○ ,
      it remains just a floating new icon)

4 - click the mp3 link in the top window


5 - select Open with Internet Explorer
     select Android system
     select Google Play music
    (then adjust the size of this player window)

6 - re-open the third floating window ( click the floating icon )

7 - it's ok
( click to zoom in )

      old version (Kitkat) : see posts 31 and 32

Android/ The screen has been locked in vertical (portrait) position.
Go to your play store and install a "rotation app".
+ placing the mp3 player at the top is more convenient.

At the beginning, you could go to your lesson on Justlearnchinese.com in Internet Explorer before taking care of the multi-window mode side bar so you would move the Internet Explorer icon only once !
[ and no more copy and paste...
if you also go in Chrome and choose the Line Chinese dictionary from the very beginning, first of all. ]
