About this app

Widgets are no longer only for your homescreen!

Floating Widget lets you interact with any homescreen widget while you’re using any app on your device.
Ever wish you could:
- Control your local or streaming music without leaving your current app?
- Have a sports scoreboard up while using your e-book reader?
- View a data usage widget in real time while using the app you’re testing?
- Have a clock on the screen while playing a full screen game?
- View CPU usage while you’re interacting with an app?
- Have the a traffic indicator widget always up while commuting?

With Floating Widget, you can do all of these and more! Check the screenshots and embedded video for setup and examples.

Features include:
-Choose from any widget you have installed designed for Android’s home screen
-Position the widget anywhere on your screen
-Resize the widget to as big or small as you’d like
-Save up to 5 different floating widget profiles
-Have multiple widgets floating at once
-Create custom shortcuts to quickly launch any of the 5 profiles
-Control widget transparency
-Notification quick actions
-Tasker plugin support

Permissions explained:
- this app can appear on top of other apps : the magic permission that makes the whole thing possible

- run foreground service : needed for the service to continue running and not abruptly close because Android thinks its actually in the background

- have network access & view network connections : crash reporting, this is a very non-standard app, so when something breaks I want to be able to fix it

- control vibration : for touch feedback

(5/2022) This is an AWESOME app. It does what it says, and in multiple instances. It also has Tasker integration. The reason for the lower rating is that it appears that support for this app has discontinued and the app hasn't been updated since 2018.

Way better than expected. Float my Google Notes widget for super quick access to record ideas and take notes.

I cannot position and invisible widget on the home screen unless it's floating but I don't want it floating just to be on the home screen. I can't get rid of the ugly green color outline on top of the widget and I can't make the ugly widget completely invisible to hide on my home screen.
