Pops for Android brings a new style of customization to your notifications with themes. Each theme includes different animations and videos to signal a notification on your Android device. Pops is constantly updating their gallery of notifications, but users can also create their own from personal photo or video galleries. This may be a gimmick app whose charm will wear off, but I’m interested to see where this app will go. One good thing going for it is that the “pops” only come up when the screen is off, though this could be a battery killer (unless it could be configured to fire only for certain contacts). It’s also a refreshing change from just a sound and notification light blinking. Yeah, I’ll probably get sick of it, but for now I’m having fun playing around with the Space Invaders theme.
Pops currently supports Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and text massages notifications and is planning to expand to more services soon. Be sure to check out the video after the break and grab the app for free over at our apps database here. Gimmick or interesting? Hit us up in the comments.
