    Description

    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.

    MAIN BENEFITS
    * 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
    * SMS
    * Whatsapp

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

    HOW IT WORKS
    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.
