    I need to open a same app twice, e.g. I want to open 2 maps (or 2 gallery images), so I can use the switch task button (long press home key) to quickly switch between 2 maps (or 2 images).

    How to open the same app twice?

    Thanks

    Re-opened do to me misunderstanding what's being asked. :)

    And to answer the question in this thread, no that can't be done. Two instances of the same app being open simultaneously isn't possible (at least on unrooted and/or stock software).
