Floating Notifications earned a place in our roundup of top apps from May even though it wasn't even in the Play Store yet. Well, now it is and it comes with a ton of improvements over the beta version from XDA.

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.

Today has become Facebook day, whether we like it or not, it seems. If you're sick of the social network, but still like the idea of having a floating app to message your friends, Ninja SMS may be what you need. This app commandeers your text messages when you receive them, hovers over whatever you're doing, and lets you roll up the conversation when you're not in the midst of a message.

Finally! Since the dawn of floating apps (which was like, what, three months ago?) this is the one that I've hoped for: a chat client! Brought to us by the Tablified dev team, LilyPad HD finally makes it possible to rid yourself of the full-screen chat client on your tablet for something far more practical.

Like other floating apps, LilyPad offers basic features needed for an always-on-top app, like quick-hide mode, resizable windows, and even tabs for chatting with multiple people without having a slew of small windows taking over the entire screen.

The mind behind Stick It! and AirCalc has released another innovative app, introducing OverSkreen to the Android Market today. OverSkreen is a floating browser app, allowing users to browse the web on top of just about any app and move, resize, or close browser panes at will.

OverSkreen may seem too good to be true, but the browser has a robust set of functions. OverSkreen supports Adobe Flash (on devices running Android 3.0+), system-wide bookmarks, multiple instances (panes), various user agents, and "suggest-while-typing" URL bar.
