I want Half View in Windows 8

Windows 8 has this mode that they call "Snap View" where an app takes 10% of the screen and another one takes the other 90%. This is cool because it allows me to work with two apps at the same time (sort of). However I sometimes like to compare things where one app isn’t that much more important than the other. For this I would request half screen where each app would get 50%.

This may be an edge case, but I like to compare the WinRT version of common apps like Kindle and Evernote with their Classic Windows versions. With two monitors I could do this, but if with just my laptop, no way. I would also like to compare two WinRT apps or even compare the data of two different apps.
