Welcome to Vodafone Community
The S4 has a sidebar/tray tool thingy - (not found out what its actually called) - which looks handy, but how do you add new Apps to it? I can drag them off and on when editing, but I cant seem to find a way of actually adding those Apps that I might find useful on it! If anyone has any clues that might be useful!
Just in case anyone hasn't found it yet, do a long press on the BACK key (bottom right) and a small arrow appears on the left hand of the screen. Touch the arrow, and a few shortcuts appear.
I have just found that its called the Multi Window Panel. so perhaps only Apps that can run in Multi window mode are available?
Have a look at this article on Android Central and it will tell you how to use the multi window
I’ve done some searching for you and it would appear that not all apps are compatible with the Multi-window function.
I’d suggest a quick Google search may show which apps you can use.
If you have the time, would you be able to complete a short feedback survey for me? You can find it here and it’ll go to ensuring I’m offering the best service I can.

Thanks, that was the conclusion I'd come to.
I'm tending to use it as a shortcut for some of the Apps I use most, not for multi windows!
There isn't any ambiguity about it. The Side Bar comes pre populated with apps that can use multi view and the edit button lets you add more that aren't there already. It isn't designed to be a shortcut bar. That's the job of the home screens and the icons that can be anchored at the bottom of every home screen.
