Paranoid Android Says Hello To Halo – 'This Is How You Do Multi Windowing On Android'


Posted Image


It was yesterday we showed you what the developers behind the Paranoid Android custom ROM had been hard at work on — a new feature for Android dubbed “Halo” notifications. Similar to Facebook Messenger’s Chat Heads, Halo notifications work system-wide, forwarding all notifications from the notification bar to the Halo bubble. There, the notification can be clicked, and opened up in a tiny applet (again, similar to the way Facebook Messenger handles messages).

It’s all quite genius really, and one of the best implementations of a multi-window user interface I’ve seen on Android to date. Today, one lucky fella from YouTube got his hands on an early build of Paranoid Android — Halo notifications and all — demoing the new feature for the world to see. He sounds almost as excited as I would be to try ‘em out. Check out the video below.

HOPE THIS COMES TO HAWEI ASCEND G300!!!! :D

I doubt PA + Halo would even work well on our device, our device is only a single core 1Ghz, and it only has about 350 mb of accessible ram.

Awesome!! but on g300, no way -- dual core, 1 GB RAM should be a must

Ubuntu doesn't require as much processing power as PA, or even just stock android. Ubuntu could probably run well on even a 500 MHz device with 250 MB ram.

PA is very power hungry as it offers so many features, CM10.1 'sometimes' struggles on our hardware, so PA would just be a pain in the ass :P

Right. Even if this feature from PA is ported, it would be unusable or extremely jarring on G300.
