Extreme multitasking: the best floating apps for Android

Envious that some Samsung Android device owners with the Nature UX can detach the video playback in a hovering window? Looking with interest to Sony's Small Apps suite, or those devices that have the Pop-up View app mode, letting you pin notes or a calculator on top of everything else?

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.
