I find that if I open Android apps like Foursquare, Facebook or AccuWeather etc and when I minimise them to Tiles they do not do so like the native sailfish apps, they overwrite each other. I am using the latest firmware. If jolla is expounding the virtue of being able to use Android apps on the Jolla devices then we should expect them to behave as one would expect them to behave. Can this be looked at for the future?

This is a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/322/android-applications-should-not-be-grouped-in-the-same-window/ (with >150 votes, so you're not alone!).

In short: It's not a bug, but a natural consequence of how Android support works in Sailfish. Different "tiles" (they are called covers in Sailfish) for different Android apps might be possible to do, but it's probably not Jolla's highest-priority job now.
