Paranoid Android HALO notification support shown on video
The Paranoid Android team have been on a roll recently, we’ve already seen some of the new features being implemented in one of Android’s most popular custom ROMs, and now we get a glimpse at how it plans to cope with multiple notifications.
The latest improvements to HALO allow users to scroll through various notifications waiting for a response and interact with other apps, without having to go back and forth between bothersome app draws or menus.
It’s quite a neat way of seeing all your notifications quickly without interrupting whatever you’re currently doing, and it doesn’t take up a lot of screen real-estate. This is definitely a video that you’ll want to check out.[embed, width=”645″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ODo4nIm8Osw[/embed]
Perhaps most impressively, you can still access the little HALO notification from within any other app, even a full screen game, without having to exit or return to the home screen. Changing music tracks, replying to texts, checking Facebook, it all works seamlessly.
This looks like the much sought-after multi-tasking functionality that Android has always needed, I can’t wait to try it out. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
