Pops is a new and exciting way to receive your Android device’s notifications. Instead of the classic (read: boring) ringtones and notification bar icons, you now have the option to use rich multimedia instead.
You can set Pops for your SMS, Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter notifications. Currently there are over 80 different Pops to choose from with more being added all of the time. A few examples include the Nyan Cat, Android parachutist, or PiggyPop (check out the screenshots below for some visual examples). Or if none of those fit your fancy, you can even customize Pops from your own pictures or videos. Then, when you receive a text message or new @mention on Twitter, Pop!
Note: the settings let you disable Pops at specified times (e.g. 10pm to 7am) or while you’re in meetings. Pops are only activated when your Android device’s screen is off, so you don’t have to worry about being overwhelmed or burdened by constant multimedia notifications.
- Pop-up multimedia notifications for SMS, Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter
- 80+ downloadable Pops or create your own from an image or video
- Pops only activate when your Android device’s screen is off
- Awesome concept with huge potential
Areas for improvement:
- Customizing Pops for individual contacts (at least for SMS) would be a nice feature
Conclusion: Pops is a fresh, unique, entertaining way to receive notifications on your Android device.
