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.

Great app, but needs more improvements this app is great as it enable users to create and personalize their own overlays screen to their liking. however, i am looking forward to more improvements, such as ability to change the icon of any widgets/shortcuts created with any icon packs, adding background image on created overlays screen, and improvements on smoothness of the app itself, because sometimes there is still a slight lag upon initiating an overlays screen, even when it is already set to appear 1 second upon initiation

Nice App Really a Nice App, but if apps can be opened directly then it will be more beneficial

Great app I have a g2 and bought the pro version. This is a great clever app to give you access to things like widgets on an overlay to the open app. Saves a lot of time. My only problem is that I use the slider to trigger the overlay and I have to push the overlay button 4 or 5 times before it works. Very frustrating. Not sure if it is my phone or the app but the button sensitivity on the sidebar needs to be increased. I currently have it on maximum sensitivity but still no luck.
