Steps to reproduce:

The Application-Manager for switching between open apps has a bad usability, because it always shows only one app and you have to swipe repeatedly until you find the desired app.

Expected results:

I think, it would be better to have a grid-view of all open apps (2x2 on smartphones, 3x3 on tablets). And only if more than 4 (9) apps are open a second page appears, if this is full a third page, and so on. That would decrease the need for swiping significantly. (The closing can still be done as today: with a close button or with swiping the thumb out of the edge.)

You would have a better overview of all open apps and switching between them would be easier and faster.

I'd like to get this feature too. And if possible, I'd like to be assigned to work with it.

It should be great to have that as an option so that you can choose if you want the traditional or the grid multitasking-view.
