Floatify Goes Beyond Android L-Style Notifications with Direct Actions and More

Recently. we talked about Floatify, a handy app by XDA Senior Member Jawomo that brings Android L-style floating notifications to your pre-L device. While the original release was already packed with a bunch of features like interactive notifications, the ability to open in xHalo, and lockscreen placement, there is always room for improvement in any product. Jawomo realized this and updated Floatify with a bunch of new features.

The latest release brings direct actions such as Reply, Call Back, and so on, and allows the user to respond to the notification from the lockscreen, without the need to open the app. In addition to direct actions, Jawomo has also added favorite actions, which allows you to link actions to a gesture, for example, expanding the notification with a single tap and opening it in xHalo with a long press. Lastly, status bar gestures have been added, which allows you to open the notification popup or dimiss notifications by just swiping down on the status bar, even if it isn’t visible.

Regardless of whether you’re an existing Floatify user, or someone who’s not yet tried it out, the latest Floatify update is full of promise. Head over to the Floatify app thread to get started.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
