Overlays - Float Everywhere

Overlays - Float Everywhere


Overlays is an advanced multitasking tool that floats your widgets everywhere.
Try it, it'll float your boat!

Add and organize your Overlays in Global profiles and use them whenever you want, regardless to what application you're currently using.
You can control your profiles in multiple ways:
1. Sidebar - swipe the left or right side of your screen to reveal our sidebar and toggle your profiles.
2. Application - show your profiles only when a specific application is running.
3. Events* - trigger your profiles on event occurrence, for example - automatically float your music player widget when you plug your headset.
4. Shortcuts - add Overlays shortcuts to your home launcher to spare some room!
5. Always On - If you wish to float a Global profile everywhere and all the time, just set it to Always On (tap its row to toggle).

* 8 Events are currently supported - Incoming and Outgoing call, WiFi and Bluetooth state, Device docked, Headset plugged, USB connected and Airplane mode.

Global profiles contains Overlays, but what are Overlays?
Basically, everything that floats. Your widgets, shortcuts and our in-app unique overlays (Battery, Weather, Clock, Missed calls and Unread messages).
- Long press any overlay, anywhere, to enter edit mode, where you'll be able to move, delete, re-size and configure the overlay.
- Set a different size and position for each overlay per screen orientation, portrait and landscape.
- Change any overlay's background color, visibility and other settings.
- Show the overlay only in required orientation.

Thanks Update solved the problem :). Although whenever i go out of the app (that has one overlay), it has kind of some lag for the overlay to go away.. What im telling is the overlay reactivity during app killing, not during app launch (which is actually in the settings)

Its alright but I would go pro but the only issue is that the screen has to be unlocked to see the overlay was going to use this to have multiple widgets and such on my Lockscreen that can be toggled

Fantastic Overlays is actually how the whole UI ideas in computing started out way back in my Amiga, Atari ST and Apple Macintosh days..

Does what it says Fantastic for reading all my feeds while multitasking, or for writing notes, the possibilities are endless! I would love to be able to lock widgets so I can't accidentally delete, the setting may exist somewhere, additionally, if widgets could snap to each other and if I could have a default starting position and if the widgets would move out of the keyboard's way automatically, it would be perfect!
