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.

Thanks.

Consuming lot of battery after using the app, while using app it does not show any tremendous decrease ...... For example Battery directly go down to 25% from 70%, while it was 70% after the using the app.... Dont understand how app is consuming battery even after i close and off it
