Tiny Apps joins the cohort of floating app suites for Android
Well, Android's versatility is here to help. There are solutions out there that allow you to "float" videos, a note list, calculator, even browser and whatnot, above anything else you are doing underneath, and Tiny Apps is the newest entrant in the floating apps category. It offers Tiny Notes, Recorder, Paint, Music Player and Calculator.
Needless to say this aids significantly with multitasking on your handset or tablet as it lets you see and do more things at once. While not exactly a multi-window mode, "floating" apps can certainly come in handy at various situations, so check out some of the best in the slideshow below.
Best floating popup window apps for Android to aid your multitasking
You can have up to four windows open at once, and there is even a widget to help you open them quickly from your homescreen. In addition, the app shares your musings with many services, including Dropbox, and can also insert them directly into an email or text message. There is also the first Floating Notes app, which is $1.26, but is not dressed up in the ICS-ish theme of the newer edition.
LilyPad HD works with the Facebook and MSN/Live messengers, as well as Google Talk, and more IM clients suppor is on the way. After the trial period, you are left with only GTalk support for free, and have to shell out for the rest via an in-app purchase, but there is a 50% off promo going on right now.
OverSkreen offers precisely this functionality, letting you float your stock browser in a window or more above all else, and have Wikipedia on while doing your homework - come on, we know you do it all the time.

I'm pretty sure this app will make any phones laggy, not because of their hardware though

It would be nice to see links to these apps in plain text instead of the flash preview window.
