Floatify Brings Stacked, Android L Style Notifications to Your Lock Screen

Over the past year, we’ve talked quite a bit about SideControl by XDA Senior Member Jawomo. For those who don’t remember, this app started out as a sidebar launcher, but it has grown into a much larger project capable of delivering your notifications and allowing you to perform up to 45 custom activities. Now, Jawomo is back with a new app called Floatify.

Floatify is essentially a floating notification center. When a notification is received, you are shown a translucent popup menu with stacked notifications. These notifications are interactive, just like they would be in your notification tray, and you are also able to open or dismiss the incoming messages. You are even able to open the app in xHalo and stay within the currently running application. And of particular interest to those longing for some Android L-like goodness, Floatify is also able to display these stacked notifications on your lock screen.

Just like Jawomo’s other app, Floatify is a very well polished utility. This polish shows through in features such as smart blacklist,which allows you to prevent popups while running certain apps. And once the blacklisted app is closed, the notifications will pop up like normal. In addition, there is an option that automatically shows you all pending notifications as soon as you unlock your device.

If you’ve been looking for a better way of handling your notifications or you want to get some of L’s benefits today, you may want to give Floatify a shot. Head over to the application thread to get started.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
