The new Portal beta app brings Paranoid Android style Halo multitasking to virtually every Android device, and it’s now available for download from the Google Play Store.
The first Paranoid Android ROM based on Android 4.3 is available for the Nexus 4 (mako), although there are still some root-related issues with it.
Picking the best custom Android ROM can be a tricky business, so we tear-down two of the most popular Jelly Bean ROMs to try and figure out which is the best.
Intrigued in HALO but not exactly interested in moving over to the Paranoid Android ROM? We have good news for you, HALO is now open source!
Their Halo theme is one we’ve been excited for, and have kept track of throughout. There is a lot of cool stuff about Paranoid Android ROMs, but Halo brings the Chathead feature to us on a wider scale. Rather than being focussed on Facebook Messenger, as Home was, Halo brings those cool little pop-ups to just about every app you have. Now that’s exciting!
The latest video of Paranoid Android, a custom Android ROM, shows off how the HALO feature copes with numerous notifications and improves multi-tasking.
For those not aware, HALO is a whole lot like chat heads for Facebook Home, except it works with just about any app. The goal for HALO is to be your all inclusive notification center, and I must say I’m impressed with it.

It’s a brilliant function. Read on for more!
Paranoid Android hasn’t said anything official in advance of it, or since, but there is an icon… reminiscent of a chat head… sitting there, waiting for us.
What could it be for?
Multi-tasking on small devices can be a pain, but Paranoid Android aims to change all that with its new approach to multi-tasking which it has shown off in a new video.
