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.

It takes my 5 minutes to decide buying the paid version. Really useful. With the setting for how the apps notifications will interact with you, makes the app so useful and avoids unnecessary notifications. Hopefully smart watch makers can take look at this app to learn the best way of notifying the user.
This app is brilliant, although there could be a few adjustments made, particularly to the physics of the notification bubbles. They can be quite difficult to move, and you can't throw them around the screen like the Facebook chat heads. If this change is ever made, it will be a 5 star app in my opinion.
An amazing app very useful
Used to work well, now nothing show up
