Multitask with Floating Stickies App

The Android operating system is renowned for its multitasking capabilities and its flexibility to cater to any user’s personal preferences and requirements. Since the introduction of ‘floating’ applications from big names such as Sony and Samsung, users have access to a whole niche of applications that attempt to emulate the same experiences of these apps.

Floating Stickies by XDA Senior Member Mohammed_Adib is a notes application very similar to Sony’s Note small app, allowing users to jot down quick notes on a miniature notepad that hover over other applications. With the function to have multiple colored notepads floating around at the same time, they’re also conveniently dockable on the left side of the screen meaning notes are easily hidden when not in use. Other features include copying written words to clipboard, and pasting copied words onto the notepad. A app notification also appear in the drop-down notification area, which when pressed, saves, and closes all notepads.

Credit must be given to the developer for making this app available for free on the Play store and that Floating Stickies supports Android version 2.3 and above, allowing access to a very wide range of users. Floating Stickies is simple, practical, and fun. It’s great to use when you don’t have pen and paper lying around, or when you realize the impracticality and annoyance of exiting an app just to jot down something quickly. Visit the application thread to learn more.
