Floating Notifications shows chat-head-like notifications on top of any app
We are now used to status bar notifications. However, that's not the only (or the best) way to display notifications on your smartphones. Rob J proposes a new way to do it, inspired by Facebook chat-heads and Paranoid Android: floating notifications that pop up on top of any app and can be moved anywhere you like in the screen (hold and drag), show its content and launch the app (tap and tap again content) or dismiss it (double-tap).
Floating notifications support almost any app with notifications installed in your device, except Kik Messenger and Google Now so far. However, users can set which apps they want to see floating notifications for by selecting them from the app notifications list. In addition, floating notifications appearances is fully customizable (size, color, content text font size, width,...), as well as its behavior.
An original and highly useful app that makes easier interacting with your mobile device.

a must have for any android particularly who run everything with expanded mode on.
I like this better than halo because it gives me more simple but clearer UX
Once you have the hang of setting it up and figuring out what is what, its great and very useful
This is definitely a great app if you're switching over from Apple. Gives you the option to set your notification with privacy option. Only reason I'm giving it a 4 star is because it has some glitches. Ex: when I open my email and refresh for new email my notifications stop working and I would have to restart my phone. Hope that gets fix soon.
Be aware that root users can install the Xposed framework and the Xposed module named "XHaloFloatingWindow" to get a nearly exact replica of ParanoidAndroid's Halo functionality, when using this app. Works like a charm! :)
