Floata Lets You Tweet from Any App

When talking about social networks, three major players come to mind. For most people, these are Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. Facebook’s official messaging client includes floating chat heads, and the result is quite nice looking and easy to use. This allows you to stay apprised of notifications while you have your main client hidden away in the background. If you’d like to have a similar effect with Twitter, Floata by XDA Senior Member mohamedrashad might be useful for you.

Floata is a Twitter client that uses floating technology. You may recall that a few weeks ago we talked about Tweet Balloon. Floata is quite similar, but instead of running on Android 4.0 and up, it works with Android 2.3 or higher. Using Floata, you can Tweet while browsing the Internet, playing games, watching videos, or listening to music. And of course, you don’t have to leave your currently running application to launch your Twitter client.

Floata is very simple to use. All you need to do is start the client, sign in to Twitter, and turn on the Floata trigger. The application is still in early stage, so there might be some bugs present, as well as some missing functionality.

If you can’t live without Twitter, give Floata a try by visiting the application thread.
