10.7: Dual Monitor full-screen app trick
Authored by: jpalten on Sep 30, '11 02:05:31PM

This is how it works for me:
- make an app full screen
- user 3-finger swipe to start moving the full screen space to the left a little bit
- keep the 3 fingers there, and use the spotlight keys to open spotlight (or use QuickSilver as I do)
- enter the name of the app that you want to add to the full screen space (must not be running) and press enter
- wait until that app appear, then release the 3 fingers.

Note: I had to keep my 3 fingers still, otherwise spotlight or QuickSilver wouldn't respond to my typing. Also, moving the added app around might make it jump to a 'regular' space.

Unfortunately, the iPhone Simulator does not behave this way, so I still can't have Xcode full screen for debugging and run the simulator on the second display. Boohoo.
