Phone [APP][4.0+] HoverChat (formerly Ninja SMS): Alternative to Facebook ChatHeads for SMS

Featured in Time Magazine "50 Best Android Apps for 2013" Must-have Android apps for newbies and enthusiasts alike.


HoverChat (formerly Ninja SMS) enables true multitasking by allowing you to read and reply to incoming messages without ever leaving your current screen, dealing with in-your-face social feeds, or having to change your favorite launcher. On the plus side, it works on all Android phones 2.3+.

Features:
★ Multiple floating windows at the same time
★ Drag and drop windows anywhere with ease
★ Collapse mode helps minimize popups for easy access anytime
★ Anti-NSA mode: Encrypt messages while sending to contacts so your phone carrier or government cannot read it... Ninja Style!
★ Emoji Support
★ Notification animation for new incoming messages in minimized chat windows
★ Maximize mode allows you to switch to full texting mode in an instant
★ Transparency mode to help you view other windows in the background as you read and reply to messages
★ Settings panel lets you control which contacts the app will show popups for
★ 1 easy switch to enable and disable anytime
★ Efficient battery usage so you can keep the popups open as long as you want
★ Elegant design and graphics

I purchased this app not long after you initially released it. I have to say I love it. Works great and keeps getting better. Fantastic job!

Any plans to include Whatsapp notifications? Like the app and Whatsapp would improve its usefulness a ton

+1 for what's app compatibility.I'm having some issues right now.screen wakes up with every notification even if this option is disabled.although this happens only when phone is on silent. Another problem I had sometimes the pop-up would turn almost transparent for no reason making it unusable.generally applications seems unstable atm.some times it just doesn't want to show my messages...like it's getting auto disabled....anyhow still waiting for lightflow support and for some fixes which that are quite important...potential is great whatsoever...

We have plans to support other apps in future updates, Whatsapp is a bit tricky though because they do not have any developer APIs.

Using paid version now. Like so far, have a few requests/suggestions. Can you make it possible to switch to sms app of your choice from ppopup? And I would love to see semi transparent"chat heads". And can this be themed easily? ie can we use images to make rounded corners and such or is this all drawn by system? If it will be themable can we get a guide somewhere?
Thanks

Nice, it would be great if it integrates with Floating Notifications, just a thought.
