OverSkreen (floating browser)
10,000 - 50,000 downloads
- Floating windows
- Simple and good-looking layout
- Bookmarks & Favorites
- Only paid version
Not so much in smartphones because of its size, but in tablets we miss multi-tasking that windows provided in desktop devices. For example, when you're writing a post with your write app and you need to open the browser to search something, you have to turn between these windows. Why if we could use floating windows and distribute them through the screen? That would be actual multi-tasking, wouldn't it? Well, that's precisely what OverSkreen does, an idea that comes from AirCalc developers (MBFG).
Although the floating windows is its main feature, OverSkreen is a comprehensive browser. It supports Flash by default and it works smoothly. What's more, it includes some other interesting features as User-Agents to "navigate as" other devices. If you cannot live without bookmarks, here you have a good bookmark manager as well as favorites tab. One of the features we liked most is that it suggests you while typing in the address bar. Finally, it's set in simple but good-looking layout that eases navigation.
Without shadows of a doubt, this is an innovative browser which is meant to become an interesting choice, specially for tablets. The only catch is that there isn't lite version, only paid (€1.49). High recommendable.

But too slowness when open it and no more updates
It allows me to easily check out multiple links without leaving an original page.
Maybe its your machine he said! Well maybe it's the Developer. This app is slow is doesn't load video's properly inside web pages. The buttons don't minimixe the just shut the brouser down. No side arrows to control screen like in windows app sucks big f
I own several new android devices and cant download this on any of them
Needs a way to dock on the side off the screen like some of the floating note apps
Great app! I love it!
Would be 5stars but don't work on my pipo tablet
