    If you open up a second app while multitasking, there doesn't seem to be a way to expand it to take up more than 50% of the screen. Is there a way around this?

    No, you only have the option of splitting the screen in half.

    you do the juggle - quit both apps and load the right app up as the left app, then bring in the left app as the new right app.

    They need better controls generally for multitasking. A 'swap sides' option would be good, and a better way to select the app on the right instead of the growing 'long vertical list'

    ^^^^^thats what i do, or if i know ahead of time that i need one to fave more screen then the other, i will load it up first.

    so yeah its possible to have one favor more over the other

    agree on the "swap sides" option or something to that nature...

    The better workaround is to drag the split screen separator all the way across the screen from the opened second app, where it take up the whole screen and closes Split Screen. Then drag from the right side and open the first app.
