actsoftreason: It's a floating instant messaging app. it stays on top of any apps you run. it has support for a lot of IM protocols but I mostly use hangouts and facebook. i must say, it's nice having both hangouts and facebook together and chatting from one app. its perfect for my nexus 10 or even my nexus 7. i use it on my phone as a quick reply for facebook and hangouts. i wish it had SMS though. it lets me watch youtube or browse reddit while still having conversations with people.
This is the LITE version of LilyPad. "LilyPad HD finally makes it possible to rid yourself of the full-screen chat client on your tablet for something far more practical." – AndroidPolice.com
Originally coining the idea of 'chat heads' back in 2012, LilyPad HD is the first floating instant messaging/chatting app for your Android tablet and phone! Or how about those Samsung popup apps? Yup, LilyPad HD was there before that too. But unlike Facebook's Chat Head (chatheads) messenger, which limits you to only Facebook Messenger, LilyPad HD brings the floating chat/popup app idea to ALL of your favorite instant messaging services. That means you can now watch a YouTube video, surf the internet, or use any of your other apps while simultaneously chatting with your AIM, Yahoo, Jabber, Google Talk/Hangouts, MSN and yes, of course, Facebook friends!
With LilyPad HD, you can now have powerful multitasking capabilities just like on your desktop computer. LilyPad HD was designed to 'float' over all of your running applications!.
