    Has anyone been using any floating apps?

    My Galaxy Tab has a few built in apps that float over the screen while other things are open but Samsung decided which ones.
    I've gotten a couple on my phone that have been very handy and really enjoy this new step in true multi task ability Android is going in. Though not free, Overskreen browser has become my default and Aircalc is my default calculator, and it was free. Both can be resized while using from a very small area to full screen or even minimized like desktop programs.
    There are more available but I haven't tried any others yet.
    Has anyone else started making use of floating apps on their Rezound yet?

    Can you copy things from another open window into the "floating" window? If not I can't really see the point.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    It's not a floating app per se, but I highly recommend swypepad. It lets you choose a target area of your screen (mine is where the clock is). Any time you touch and hold that part of the screen for a second, it brings up a menu of apps that you set so you can open any of them from anywhere, with ease. I love it.

    Sign is sort of like that. Tap the icon and the entire top and bottom halves of the screen become a place to do a user set gesture for contacts to either call or message. You can set what each half initiates as well. It overlays the wallpaper and remains transparent except for the translucent part for showing what is what.
