    Are they actually running simultaneously? Keeping apps running for an absent user seems that a luxury that a resource-limited phone can't afford (or shouldn't if you want your battery to last more than an hour). – Matthew Read Nov 23 '14 at 4:53
  • If the app supports continuing in the background, then yes. Look at the running apps and there will be an entry for each other user. (currently, my Nexus7 only shows google services, but the secondary users have no apps) – Ricky Mar 7 '15 at 6:24
