Version 4.4: Bubbles & floating normal apps

The Christmas present is here! The new version, Floating Apps 4.4, brings several overall improvements and some new features.

1. Bubbles – It’s now possible to minimize the floating window into a floating bubble which is very similar to, for example, Facebook’s Chatheads. Of course, there is still an option to switch back to the single floating icon for minimized windows.

2. Floating of installed apps – From Android 7+, there is a hidden feature called free-form mode that allows floating installed apps. It’s not enabled by default, but Floating Apps will help to enable and use it. We’ve also created and published a guide how to enable free-form mode on your phone.

3. Completely new Applications – “Applications” which is a special fullscreen floating app has been completely rewritten and allows to access more features including notes, todo lists, counters, bookmarks and even files now.
