Have you ever been playing a game or watching a video when an important message comes in? You want to respond, but you also don’t want to leave what you were doing. Notifly is an app that allows you to respond to messages on the fly (get it?). It provides a handy pop-up text window so you can respond to messages without leaving your current app.
Notifly works with most of the popular messaging apps, including Hangouts, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Google Messenger, Twitter, and more. Messages appear as bubbles on the side of the screen, similar to Facebook chat heads. The bubbles expand to show the contents of the message, and a text box allows you to type a response and send it. All without leaving your current app or lock screen.
Customization and design is where Notifly sets itself apart from similar apps. You can choose the color for each messaging app and enable a badge for unread message count. The bubbles can also work in tandem with the regular system notifications. You can choose to bind the bubble to the notification in the status bar (dismissing one dismisses the other), or have the original status bar notification removed altogether.
Notifly is a beautifully material designed app that can improve your messaging experience. There are other apps that can do this type of thing, and Android N is even building it into the notification shade, but Notifly has more options and better control. The app is completely free, but you can remove ads and get more bubble customization options with an in-app purchase.
