Paranoid Android‘s new headlining feature, called Hover, has made its way into their latest beta for all to try. Hover is the replacement notification management system for the previously much-talked-about Halo, in case you were trying to keep up with ROM features these days.
So what is Hover? Well, it reminds me a bit of the way iOS handles notifications in that as they arrive, you will see them displayed at the top of your screen, on top of your current task for a few seconds before going into hiding. Notifications show in a semi-transparent black box with some contents, minimal imagery, and will even let you interact with them in a variety of ways. If you tap and hold, you can see more of their contents, but if you do a simple tap on one, the connected app will open as a pop-up for you to take care of business and then get back to your previous task.
