image How to use


            1. When an app is pinned, it will not be removed with Clear All, swiping, or the X button.


            2. Dual window, Pin, and Close buttons may appear slower when you open Recent Apps. 
                Please be assured that it is a sign of normal operation due to Android OS.


            3. Use Clear All to remove apps (except pinned ones) to make free space.
