Access Your Widgets in Any App with Flippr
Almost all of us use widgets on daily basis. We use them to change the track in our favorite music player, read Emails, check our calendar, or check the weather forecast. It’s really hard to imagine Android without widget support.
Widgets with all their pros, have some cons as well. For example, they can typically be accessed only from the home screen. XDA Forum Member sreenisatish decided to change that. Inspired by Paranoid Android’s Halo, he made an app that allows the use of widgets in every app. Widgets can be accessed even in apps running in full screen mode. The most interesting part of Flippr is that you don’t have to exit any applications to use a widget. For example, you can change your music track while browsing the Internet with Chrome or playing Flappy Birds. Flippr uses a small bubble as a trigger, so all widgets are only one swipe away. Widgets can be organized into groups, so you can organize them to suit you best.
Manufacturer-specific widgets (Sony, Samsung, LG, HTC etc.) will not work properly with Flippr. You need to keep that in mind before deciding to try this application out.
You can enhance your Android functionality with Flippr. The Flippr application thread is the perfect place to get started.
