I never became an app fan with persistent notifications or floating icons. I may have to reconsider that attitude though because fooView - Float Viewer is just so good. It aims to use your smartphone as simply as possible. With semi-transparent semi-transparent semi on the edge of your screen, fooView lets you simplify all sorts of things. These include but are not limited to: accessing your files, translating text screens, navigation, sharing some of your screen as images, launching certain apps with gestures and more. Some users may be burdened with everything that can be done, which is ironic. But any app with so many features takes time to get used to.
How to Install fooView - Float Viewer
Grant permissions for access
Before you can start using fooView, you need to grant some special permissions to the app. Launch the app and you'll be given a guide you can now skip. On the next page you will be asked to give permission. Toggle on Enable Accessibility and you will be redirected to the respective Settings page. Find fooView in the list and tap on it, then switch to the service. Similarly, grant notification access by Toggling Enable Notifications in the app.
No other setup is required and you can start using this app as soon as you allow the necessary permissions. You will see fooView similar to Facebook chat head, just in view, however. Instead of chatting, fooView opens a world of gestures and easy actions to be completed from within any app. This is an app that will appeal to those who have large phones and not so great hands. Also for those who want to be able to do more with their phones
fooView can completely replace your Android navigation bar. If you'd rather have a floating ball than a software navigation button, fooView is the best choice. It can do everything that can be done with Assistive touch or similar app. A quick flick of the fooView icon registeres as a swipe and there are actually two types of swipe. Swipe briefly and swipe long. Swipe briefly down opening the receiver screen, a short film goes into simulating the back button while swiping again in the same direction will mimic the home press button.
If you are not satisfied with the default settings, you can flick up from the fooView icon to launch the app. Go to Settings from the side drawer menu and select Gestures. Here, you can adjust what moves do what as well as the short friction length. By default, there is no Tap action set so you can set it as Home. It's much easier than a long swipe and it also feels natural. Similarly, you may want to set up Double Tap to return.
Press and hold
The first thing you might want to learn when satisfied with navigation is the press and hold method. This will open a number of quick links to other parts of the fooView app, as well as other functions and apps on your device. From the left circular menu, you can launch newly opened apps, or even apps installed in your phone. Or just choose to show a line on the edge of your screen instead of a visually pleasing, functionally functional little piece. The linear menu on the right has icons to let you move fooView circles / lines, take single or multiple screenshots, and record the entire screen or screen section.
Translate and Partial Screenshot
If you simply touch and drag the fooView / bar circle into your screen, you will see the + red icon. Once you stop dragging and holding the circle still in any place, the icon becomes yellow. After this, if you drag a circle you can select your screen area so you can take a screenshot. Pretty neat, but would be better. If you point the + icon to some text, or if the selected area contains some text, fooView will recognize and offer you to copy, save or translate text. It's never been so easy and I've used a lot of apps.
We've flown over the similar floating app icon boundaries here and this scarcely scratches the surface. fooView has more stores and all of this is absolutely free. That's right, not even an ad here. Applications like this can not be completely detailed in a single post. By the way, it has a built-in media viewer and you can view your saved images, listen to music and watch videos inside the floating window. Dope.
fooView is definitely worth your time and will definitely worth your money if it is a paid app.
