Change Your WhatsApp Notification Style with Seebye Chat Heads

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps, and it’s widely available on various mobile platforms. It allows users to contact friends in many countries cheaply. However, many are unhappy with its default UI, hence the dozens of themes spread across the forum.

A great idea was presented by XDA Forum Member seebye, who decided to combine WhatsApp with some of the good originally seen in Facebook. As a result, Seebye Chat Heads was created. In short, this application uses the WhatsApp messaging system, and displays messages in a manner similar to Facebook’s chat heads.

The notifications can be freely moved around the screen and used while in other applications, just like Facebook messages. Despite the relatively early stage of development, as this app is beta, the overall experience is impressive and the application very easy to use. To be fully functional, WhatsApp needs to be installed and root access granted. And if you experience issues, good old reboot may be required.

So if you can’t live without WhatsApp and find your current client boring, visit the application thread and enjoy the HALO-like experience.

[Thanks to Forum Moderator GermainZ for the tip!]
