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. Partially supported on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
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.

If some widgets are no longer updating after the upgrade - recreate them.

Android 5.0 Lollipop - Application profiles & Blacklist are now partially supported since Google deprecated (for security reasons) the method that returned the current foreground application.

Please allow Overlays to get usage access, in order to retrieve current foreground application data.

Oh I *really* like this thing So... I've got this (moderately non-trivial) homescreen widget I made in the Play Store, and I was wondering about how to go about making it appear on the display all the time, so I did a little searching and found Overlays. Wow. Color me impressed. This saved me a fantastic amount of bother, and it's ridiculously easy to set up. It does precisely what it says on the tin, and does it cleanly.

This app exceeds my expectations. It's Awesome !!! I really enjoy what this app does when combined with both tasker & zooper widget, it allows me to do things I never thought I could. It works quite well and is very responsive and after weeks of searching & downloading disappointing apps, I am finally Pleased with using my Phone as it is now smarter than I thought it could be :)

User Beware I have this application installed and does what it says but it also does screw my wifi with bluetooth connection. ->Everytime I use my wifi and stream music via bluetooth my wifi hangs / stops. I did try this with several test with the same result. I have uninstalled this app but the damage has been done. Hope the developer will help me to return back my wifi + bluetooth to the original state where I can use them both at the same time without wifi hang.
