Move Your Apps as Windows with Flying Android

As we are all probably quite familiar by now, Paranoid Android’s Halo feature enables you to move fully fledged apps around the screen, much like floating mini apps. For those who haven’t seen it in action, once the mode has been activated, the app appears as a resizable and movable window on the screen. There’s already been an Xposed module available to any Android user with the Xposed Framework installed that emulates this function. But if you’re looking for an alternative take on this concept, you may want to check out Flying Android.

Developed by XDA Forum Member tkgktyk, Flying Android is an Xposed module that allows you to drag elements of your device’s interface anywhere, without limits. It works a little bit different that Halo, as it is not strictly limited to only apps. Rather, it can move other UI elements as well, such as the recent apps interface and the status bar. Another difference is that it does not reduce these elements into moveable windows. In ways, Flying Android is a lot less complicated, as rather than being designed to enable easier multitasking, it allows you to use the phone with one hand more comfortably by simply letting you drag elements to where your hand can reach.

If Flying Android sounds like something you would like to check out, be sure to visit the module thread for more information.

We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
