Floatify Version 10 Adds Android N-Themed Notifications And Swipe Actions

Android's notification system has gone through some pretty intense work since the start of the platform, but that doesn't mean that third-party developers can't improve it even more. Case in point: Floatify, a customization app that's been floating around (sorry) for the better part of two years. The latest version is number ten, and it adds a couple of features from the new Android N Developer Preview. If your device isn't invited to play with the Nexus crowd (or you just don't want to deal with the instability), you can back-port some of those neat touches.

Floatifications (Formerly Floating Notifications) Gets Updated To v1.7 With New Ticker Notifications And More

The status bar is a fine way to see your notifications as they come in, but Floatifications offers a different route.

Floating Notifications Updated To v1.5 - New Card Style UI, Android 4.3 Notification Listener Support

Double tapping dismisses the notification, but there's a catch - before now, removing the floating notification hasn't also removed it from the status bar. Thanks to the latest update, devices running Android 4.3 will sync these actions due to integration with the new Notification Listener Service.

The basic premise of Floating Notifications is that it displays a subset of your notifications in a floating icon on the screen. It's a little bit like Facebook's Chat Heads feature. Floating Notifications has a plethora of settings for deep configuration, which is a definite improvement over the old version. There are a few known issues, some of which are simply Android restrictions.
