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.

Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...
Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
