Increase Productivity while YouTubing with Popup Player
Over the years, we’ve featured various floating apps of different kinds on the XDA Portal. We’ve even featured a library to help developers incorporate floating app functionality into their own creations. After all, one need only try a floating app to realize that this class of app enables a far greater degree of multitasking than the traditional full screen approach. If the next application you were hoping to add to your floating app arsenal is a floating YouTube player, XDA Forum Member digitalportal has an interesting solution with his new app Popup Player.
The app’s core functionality is (obviously) to allow users to watch YouTube videos in a window that hovers over all other running applications. Much more than simply a video viewer, the app also integrates YouTube video search results within the app. Furthermore, it listens for YouTube links that you click, and it allows you to open videos in the player directly from websites and even Google’s own YouTube app (with a simple click of the share button). Popup Player allows windows to be resized by simply using the pinch-zoom gesture. And there’s even a continuous playback mode, which plays the entire search list back-to-back.
To get started, simply head over to the application thread and give it a whirl. This may be exactly what you need to sneak in some diversion while doing an otherwise tedious task.

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
