Floatifications (Trial)

Floatifications (Trial)


Floatifications is a new and intuitive way to view your notifications. It can take a notification from any app and present it to you as a floating icon, similar to Facebook chat heads, but for any application. It even works in fullscreen mode (in Games, Youtube etc) and is fully customizable.

This is a full 14 day trial to give you plenty of time to get to grips with everything Floatifications has to offer :)

Ticker
For this to show you need to enable it per app, long press the last icon in the app list to see how.
Then in Settings choose if it should show in fullscreen, or non fullscreen apps. Or both :)

Themes
Themes for FN can be found both on the Play Store (search "FN Theme") or on XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2283623)

App integration - Android 4.2 or Lower
FN is not able to make notifications disappear from your status bar. An app cannot dismiss another apps notification.
However, if you want any of your favourite apps to either make their status bar notification disappear when you dismiss the corresponding Floating Notification, or vica versa, you can point them to this page where they can add Floatifications integration:

Halo
This is NOT Halo. There are no popups of full apps and nor will there ever be. If that is what you are after unfortunately you will not find it here.
HOWEVER, if you are running a custom ROM which supports Halo then you there is a setting to open any notifications from FN in a Halo window.

Samsung Owners
- Some Samsung devices might start reading aloud, this is a known Samsung bug, it is not something I can fix however a number of possible fixes can be found here: http://goo.gl/mnzjI And you can see Samsung's response to the issue here http://goo.gl/l1E3d
- Swipe keyboard input on some Samsung devices might stop working (typing only), again, this is a known Samsung bug, it is not something I can fix

If you receive no notifications
Do you have other accessibility services enabled? If so disable them, enable Floatifications, then re enable them. If this fails to work please email me and I'll help you set it up.

Known issues (not caused by this app)
- If you are on 4.2 and using the screen on option, when you phone is locked, instead of the usual screen timeout of 10 - 40 seconds (depending on device) it'll instead use your normal display timeout (the one you set in your display settings) - this could result in battery drain is your normal timeout is long ( >1 min)
- If you are on Sense 5 and using the lock screen option, any touch can unlock the phone, this is a known Sense issue

Needs works. Over time multiple sets of the chathead notification bubbles appear on the screen. (Not a notification for a single app like some have suggested, but the whole set of buttons duplicate).

Chat Head Persistence Bug I'm on 5.0.2 and within the bubbles and ticker I get duplicate messages from apps like WhatsApp. A person will send me one message and I see it appear in the same bubble or on the ticker twice. In the ticker I even see old messages that aren't in my notification shade anymore mixed in with new messages from the same app.

Sometimes crashes on my n910t It worked well with my note 2 on 4.3 but not so much on my note 4 running 4.4.4. Oddly enough it crashes from time to time but only when I use Google Hangouts.

Idea Make it so you can respond to them in that bubble. Like facebook messenger
