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.

I use to help my daughter. Pro user. My 4 year old loves mobile games, however even kids games come packed with inappropriate banner ads, many with no paid option, that she often clicks by accident and she is too young to avoid this or return to game alone. The overlay in certain apps protects her from viewing or being able to unintentionally click without preventing the devs ad from being downloaded. As for any "per click" revenue lost Id find anyone using this revenue model in an app for young kids very immoral to child & advertiser anyway.

Question I like the idea of an overlay. What I need is an overlay stopwatch does the pro version have a stopwatch option? Or can it make an overlay of other app stopwatch? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :-) so far seems like a cool app. If/when I get a reply ill likely download pro version and give a stronger review. Have a great day app developers. In Reply to the developers thanks for your timely response :-) ill be downloading pro shortly and ill give a more in depth review shortly
