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.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
