Active Frames allows users to quickly access up to eight open apps on one screen. The feature works by letting users minimize open apps, shrinking them to thumbnail-sized Active Frames, similar to the Live Tiles found in Microsoft's Windows Phone 8. Like Live Tiles, first-party BB10 apps running as Active Frames, such as the native calendar and weather apps, will also receive live updates. Not every app will have an Active Frame, however. When minimized, some third-party apps will simply shrink down to the size of an ordinary thumbnail.
