Cool [APP][4.0+] Overlays v1.8.1 - float your widgets ANYWHERE!


Overlays allows you to float your home screen widgets ANYWHERE!

• Show your favorite music widget on top of your navigation application!
• Float a calculator while writing documents.
• Make sure you still have battery when playing a game.
• And many more options...

With Overlays, you can create unlimited number of profiles and switch between them easily.
The Pro version will allow you to create Overlays profiles by applications - the profile will show up only when the defined application is running in foreground and disappear the second you close it.

Except the option to float any widget you have, we've added some in-house overlays - Missed calls count, Unread SMS count, Battery, Weather , Clock and system shortcuts!
We're working on many more in-house overlays, soon to come!

Would love I'd you guys can tell me which in house overlays you'd like to see.
In house overlays are not widget dependent so it saves you the trouble to install additional applications.

Thanks!
