Tiny Apps Suite of Five Useful Floating Utilities

A large number of so-called floating apps have been popping up on the Google Play store of late. Even some smartphone manufacturers have been busy creating their own takes on these apps, most notably Sony with their Small Apps.

XDA Forum Member wutk3ksHD has come up with his own floating app creation. Tiny Apps is a suite of 5 useful floating apps that stay on top of anything else on the screen. Each Tiny Apps window can be moved around anywhere on the screen. They can also easily be resized on the fly by simply grabbing the bottom corner and dragging it out.

The 5 apps included in the suite are:

  • Tiny Notes
    • save notes to storage
    • open saved notes
    • share text directly from the app
    • copy and paste support
  • Tiny Recorder
    • start a new recording and save it to storage
    • delete and share recordings
  • Tiny Paint
    • draw anything on screen
    • save and open drawings
    • 36 colours available
    • undo and clear option
  • Tiny Music Player
    • list all audio files on your device
    • display artist, title and album cover
    • play/pause, next, previous
    • random/repeat functions
  • Tiny Calculator
    • switch between basic and scientific with a simple swipe
    • copy results to clipboard

There’s also a handy widget that can be placed on your home screen, which lets you launch any individual Tiny App.

If you want to try out Tiny Apps, head on over to the application thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
