Lilbits (5-06-2013): Paranoid Android launches Halo

Drawing inspiration from Facebook’s chat heads feature, Paranoid Android developers have completely overhauled Android’s notification and multitasking system with support for always-visible notifications which let you quickly open and close an app without minimizing the app you were using.

The Paranoid Android team started showing off the software a week ago, and now there are builds of the custom version of Android available for a few phones and tablets, with support for additional devices in the works.
