    Update1: keeps crashing Update2: The "mark as read" ✅ no longer works with WhatsApp... This has been the case for a while. It renders the app half as useful : ( This is the best app I've tried for Instant Messaging Notifications. Very comfortable. I love the Pro features. But recently the double V (✅✅) button to mark as read on demand, disappeared (even on WhatsApp, where it 100% existed before). This takes the value of the app down and makes it much less comfortable. I hope it gets fixed soon.

    apk download If you keep losing notification access, make sure that Android is not managing the app automatically. You can control this on huawei, xiaomi and vernee phones in the battery settings. I'm not too sure about other devices.

  3. Luke Keevy-avatar

    apk The app is good... But it's kinda hard to use when your keyboard covers your type box, as you can't see what you've typed so far. Fix this, and I'll buy the app again.

  4. Alan Stewart-avatar

    download Really helpful, especially if you're playing a game and can respond to messages like those from Discord!

  5. Ashish Tyagi-avatar

    It was great but now I'm facing a problem either chat head is totally transparent i can't even see where it is and if it's visible then instead of their profile its shows name of that person Please fix this

  6. Kewl Brees-avatar

    I love the app but there are a few things that annoy me. I think this app should have a way it pops up near my thumb. Also, I always hear my notification sound when I send a message. All in all great app. Thanks.

  7. A Google user-avatar

    Well...needs work, my messages aren't shown when I enter via bubble, but that isn't much of a problem. The only nuisance is that even though I set the bubble to close when I enter the app (WhatsApp) but it won't close :-| Hope you work that out. Also the settings need a better explanation of what they dude, at least those are my thoughts. Keep up the good work.

  8. darrick bouman-avatar

    It works good other than the fact that it keeps deleting my messages. If the same person texts me an hour later, whatever we talked about before is gone and I have to open up google messages to see what our conversation was about. Not happy about that as I opted for the paid version. I have the clear chat history on closed unchecked and it is still deleting

  9. A Google user-avatar

    It's quite good but it started showing me two chatheads left and right. Although only one side is active. So if right is active and I move it up and down, the left chathead will move at the same time. It will reunite when I throw it to the left and do the bugs again on the right. Hope you understand what I mean. Please fix. I'm on android 8.1

  10. LifeWithJuan-avatar

    The app is good in concept. But I'm not getting proper notifications for any of my apps. I keep having to disable and reenable notifications. Even then, sometimes the messages come out as, "1 new message," rather than the message proper. I'm not getting any messages for Viber, Telegram, or any of the other apps that are essential for my work. If the interface were more like FB messenger's, I'd consider repurchasing this app. But for this version, it's not worth the price, even at a discount.

  11. Jason Randolph-avatar

    Loved this app for the past 1-2 years, but since updating to Android 9 (Pie), the chat-head won't go away when you open the app. I've made sure the permission is granted and have uninstalled and reinstalled 2 times with no change. Must be something to do with Android Pie?? On a side note, this app does see to consume a little more battery than I thought it did. When I uninstalled it, I gained about 2% more battery per hour... But, it was worth the trade off for the chat-head IMO. But, not sure I like having to remove the chat-head each time I open the app now. :(

  12. James Horan-avatar

    The app itself is very good, it adds decent functionally to apps I was expecting (WhatsApp) as well as those I wasn't expecting (it was great for keeping track of my uber eats delivery without opening the app). The customisation is decent enough for something you just quickly open and close. The main reason I give it 3 stars as of writing this is simply I have to periodically reset the permissions for it to draw over apps, which often kills the convenience of it. Fix that & it'll get 5 stars

  13. Davis Silverman-avatar

    Davis Silverman


    Definitely a much worse user experience than FB chatheads. The app also hasn't gotten an update in over a year, so it seems dead. Lots of promise in this app, but the poor usability destroys it's usefulness.

  14. Timothy Williams-avatar

    Timothy Williams


    Only issue is that it does not track the whole comversation often cutting out my responses in the chat bubble. when i open the full chat i will see the entire conversation as normal. This seems like a glitch to be patched. I wish i could see previews of pictures via the bubble also. minor issues really as the app otherwise works consistently.

  15. Tejas Anand Srivastava-avatar

    Tejas Anand Srivastava


    Great concept Hope you this app is under development yet because there is a lot of potential in this idea and many things that need to be addressed. I haven't used other apps but WhatsApp does not show the chat history, it just shows the chat from where you started chatting in the bubble. Also the media does not load in the chat head. Most of the people would use this app for WhatsApp or Instagram, so the loading if media and chat history is important. Please fix this asap as I want to use this.

  16. gzyp gzypowski-avatar

    Hey the app is great but one thing that bothers mi is the history incompatibility between chat head and actual chat in the app. E.g. when I go into whatsapp and send my message from there, it doesn't appear in a chat head with this contact, even when I have this bubble open. Also sometimes happens that few messages from the contact just don't appear bubble but they're present in app. Do You plan on fixing this or something?

  17. Azzy-avatar

    I love this app. I've wanted such a thing to exist and now it does! Unfortunately it's not without issue. In Discord you cant send pictures without opening the full app, and any messages sent not using the app cant be seen. It could be fixed with an update and I'm pleased with the result thus far

  18. Moreno Srebovt-avatar

    Works flawlessly. I do expect more options to be added. Thank you.

  19. A Google user-avatar

    The app itself worked great and did all it said however it had a massive impact on my battery life on my OP5T usually 50% could get me through about 7-8 hours but once i installed this app i went from 50% - 10% in the space of a couple hours. Edit - a uninstall reinstall of the app fixed the issue works great now with minimal to no impact on battery life

  20. FallenProdigy-avatar

    sorry forgot to rate. having an issue tho. need to be able to get chat heads for 3c battery monitor to stop popping up each time it refreshes even when using filters. what do I do?

  21. Nursal 802-avatar

    For android 7.0+ we need to allow the program read notification manually, everytime wee need them.

  22. Carlos Torres-avatar

    I downloaded the pro version for the extra functionality and I also believe in supporting independent developers and so far it's an awesome tool! The only thing lacking at this point is support for group messaging- all the messages come in individually and I can't reply to an entire group only to each person. If group messages were supported this would be a perfect 5/5 app!

  23. Sharif Salah-avatar

    Great app. Is this app still being developed? If so, I was just wondering whether I could make a feature request please? When I receive a photo through Viber or WhatsApp, it would be good to be able to preview the picture within the chat. Would this be possible please?

  24. Paddy O'Reilly-avatar

    So your saying don't pay for the Pro when the Free app version is good enough? It's a bit late telling me now! Feel like I've been Robbed! Developer Will Not implement quick reply functionality, in order to reply to messages. Only good for reading Messages. You still have to go into the app that the message came from in order to reply. What's the point of this app then? Waste of time.

  25. Omar Khattab-avatar

    The idea behind the app is good but it's implementation is poor (at least for what's app). The chat heads don't show incoming media (even when auto downloads are on in what's app) and you have to keep the chat head open if you what it to show the chat history. The actual experience can't be compared to that of FB's stock chat heads. Eventually, I have to turn off the app as it's useless (as I end up opening what's up to see the media and/or chat history).

  26. Tian Z-avatar

    Works great, but need updates. The chat head is not properly working in android10 as the user image no longer show up but only the name of the user.

  27. Artificial Music-avatar

    Artificial Music


    Does what it implies can you guys allow me to start a conversation with the app too? I get why that might not be the easiest, but maybe if you stored the information of whomever contacts me to sorta save it for when I wanna start one. It helps when I'm binge watching videos on WhatsApp and want to message about them but that requires that I scroll all the way back down

  28. Manuja Gunasena-avatar

    Manuja Gunasena


    Good and useful app. But when you clear cache notification access turns off automatically and have to turn it on evrytime.. Also sometimes duplicate messages are shown in da chat head.. Still I will use it as it allows to read and reply incoming messages without being online or getting marked as seen

  29. John Last Name-avatar

    absolute garbage. it works for like a day, then the chat bubbles stop working. or if you change and settings, it stops working correctly. when you reply, it opens a 2nd chat bubble from yourself, if you block or ignore that, it stops working correctly. if i can figure out how to get a refund i will.

  30. Call Me Awesome-avatar

    Call Me Awesome


    Great app nice job. Got pro. All the apps (but one) i use are unsupported ones and its working quite well. Few minor thing but thats expected. Looking forward to future updates **update** after using it for quite q long time now, this is a must have app. amazing. couldnt imagine not having it. nicely done

  31. A Google user-avatar

    Near perfect experience. App does what it says. The suggestion I have is to have an option to open directly into the calling app instead of DirectChat. A sort of just a floating notification instead of direct communication.

  32. Satya Viknesraj Rajendran-avatar

    Satya Viknesraj Rajendran


    Very good app. The only downfall is that the service ends by itself every single time and we have to reactivate it by going to settings. It's kind of annoying, but the benefits still outweighs. Good one dev team.

  33. Alexzander Owen-Jones-avatar

    Alexzander Owen-Jones


    If this was just for messages it'd be fine but as it's for every single notification it end up just being irritating and getting in way. Please implement a for messages only feature and make sure it doesn't tell you when you're say receiving a call in Whats App etc.

  34. Wilmar Drilon-avatar

    i had this app few years back but then there were bugs, i installed it again yesterday and dang is it perfect now. i guess my money never got wasted afterall. PS i didnt write a review that time cause i was hoping it would eventually get better and it did

  35. Stefan W-avatar

    buggy mess, keeps keyboard open, over lock screen and the navigation bar isn't visible(eventho I told it to not be hidden ever), no way to close it. And it is opening two messenger heads on from messenger and on from chathead. total. mess.

  36. Nen X-avatar

    Seriously love this program, seems to have a small issue keeping the full conversation between you and others you talk with, but thats not what this is for anyhow so wont deduct a star. it does what its supposed do and does it better than expected.

  37. Brett Parker-avatar

    this app really does change the way I use my mobile phone. it is so easy to click on different communication apps. It does not work with the email app that I use, but may change email app to accommodate using this!

  38. Paolo Constantino-avatar

    Paolo Constantino


    Great app but when using Android Messages, the profile pictures don't show up on the chat head. Attachments such as images or videos shows up as profile pictures. Please fix and will rate 5 stars.

  39. Omran Bin Mohammad-avatar

    Omran Bin Mohammad


    Awesome app! I love it. I got all the notifications right without coming online. It's great work, recommended to everyone. Just do the proper settings, give authorisations to work this app properly and believe me you'll love it.

  40. Richard Carpenter-avatar

    Richard Carpenter


    I don't want the message window opened on screen permanently displayed, so if there was an option to close it after messaging I would be happy to continue using, but until such time as there is I am stopping using this app.

  41. Daymon Hwang-avatar

    Good app, wish there is quick way to close pop-up iron. Like slide up to close. It make me feel bad when I move it from top to bottom to close it.

  42. Biswajit nayak-avatar

    It's good app. But sometimes it says to permit again for it's normal work. Please fix this bug. Otherwise it's not worth the money.

  43. A Google user-avatar

    Always missing notifications even when the phone is not idle, regardless the chat head is open (notifications too often) or not. Uninstalled. Not worth it.

  44. Paul Anthony de Leon-avatar

    Paul Anthony de Leon


    The app working properly since last year but after updating my phone Huawei P20 Pro to android 9.0, the bubble doesnt appear properly and i always have to reset the notification permission of the app every now and then

  45. Taufik Hidayatullah-avatar

    Taufik Hidayatullah


    Using this app on EMUI 9.0 based Huawei Mate 20x, I had locked this app to be running on the background but the service was occasionally stopped and i had to disable and re-enable the permission every time it happened. Please update or give options to make this app more persistent.

  46. Ameera Ali-avatar

    There should be a option of setting the chat window size. The existing one is too big. Although it has msg preview option but still resizing of chat window should be there.

  47. Jerome Meehan-avatar

    app often misses messages sent to me so i dont see other peoples messages. also the time stamp on the messages is in a horroble position and under text making both hard to read. on the one plus 6 so

  48. Jaluna Rolik-avatar

    It's a good app, but I'm not getting anything for Discord or Instagram when set to do so. Great for my texting apps, but not social media it seems.

  49. David Taing-avatar

    Like others said, its a decent implementation but in WhatsApp, a contact messaged me twice...but the chat head is only showing the last message.

  50. Michael Hand-avatar

    works really well. very happy. im a person who gets overwhelmed by notifications. this helps me keep better track of ky important ones.

  51. Jay P-avatar

    It started off with a great promise. It drops it's connection about twice a day though. All settings are correct so it's some kind of glitch with this app.

  52. ChigzaTHEreturneD-avatar



    This app is great, used the free version first and bought the pro a while later. It's so convenient and no need to open up your texting app. Now get me WhatsApp gif & sticker support and we'll reach Nirvana 🙌🏾🤩

  53. Jacinth Samuel-avatar

    not able to contact developer or give feedback. There is no way bugs are going to be fixed. Do not download this app.

    Give option to filter not only just title of a notification but also text of a notification. No update for a long time. Please add new features.

  55. A Google user-avatar

    ... message bubble pops up but the verbiage of the message is not displayed, which makes the app useless. I had the pro version too... uninstall. I use Textra.

  56. Okay Mandeep-avatar

    Fraud App using mobile data for stealing our data this app used almost 6 gb data from my phone in background which is very disappointing So Guys don't even think about using this app this is 100% Fraud app.

    works great. only wish it was possible to separate the chatheads!

  66. RITESH KUMAR-avatar
