Chat Heads let you message within any app. You can view incoming message from friends in any app, and reply with a click. It does no matter what app you're already in. checking email, playing games, browsing the web or any other app.

When an incoming chat message arrives, a bubble with the picture of the sender and the text appears on the screen with the sender's photo. Tap the photo to open a message window, swipe to remove.

* Incoming messages do not break your flow, they appear whereever you are
* Seeing faces instead of names is faster to recognize
* The bubble appears long enough and has a large enough text that you can read it (unlike notifications)
* When you turn your phone on, you see the last few messages

Chat Heads provides similar functionality to Facebook's Chat Heads (not the entire Facebook Home product), but runs on every phone model and supports also non-Facebook messages

Current version supports :
* Facebook Messenger
* Whatsapp

We are working to add support for:
* Viber
* Line

By using an Android option called "Accessibility Service", this app captures notifications, and checks if it is a chat message. The app draws chat bubbles on top of any running apps. Clicking the chat bubble opens the originating app in the appropriate screen.

Network - Connect to Facebook and download friends images
Write external storage - save cache of friends images
Draw on other apps - draw the bubble on the running app
Accessibility service - Receive incoming notifications
Read Contacts - Resolve phone number to name on incoming SMS
Receive SMS - Get notified on incoming SMS messages
