Developers have been getting more and more creative with how they look at widgets, constantly thinking up new functions and designs. A couple months back we told you about a slick new app called Overlays that brings widgets front-and-center no matter what application you are running. An excellent idea, Overlays is only available for Android 4.0 and above. Thanks to XDA Senior Member sak-venom1997, an alternative to Overlays called Widgets Everywhere has been released.
Currently in public beta version 2.32, Widgets Everywhere is a very useful application with some innovative features. Incorporating XDA Senior Member pingpongboss’s StandOut libraries, users are able to float and move widgets over any running application using pinch-to-zoom gestures to resize. Widgets can overlap each other, and users can float as many widgets as they can fit on their screen.
Planned features for the future include a custom widget-picker, independent of Android’s built-in tool and enhanced resizing options. Widgets Everywhere is compatible with any device running Android 2.1 or newer and is ad-free and free to download at the link below.
