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. Not 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.

Android 5.0 Lollipop - Application profiles & Blacklist are not supported since Google deprecated (for security reasons) the method that returned the current foreground application.

I'm looking into a possible solution - will update soon.

Really useful if you are creative enough I love this app. Ive been evolving my uses as I've found interesting ways to customize my ui and use apps. My only gripe is I can't get the swipe area to register. Do I need to start and stop within the zone? Does it have to be precise and swipe the entire area I designated?
