Pops app makes notifications cool again, swaps boring ringtones for GIFs and videos

There's only so much fun you can have with farting or motorcycle revving ringtones, before everyone around you starts getting suspicious about your mental capacity.

The Pops Ringtones & Notifications app saves the day in precisely those situations, granting you a way to spice up your notifications and ringtones game, without annoying too many people in the process. Pops lets you use short videos, GIFs, and even animated memes, in the place of, or in addition to, call ringtones. Even better, you can use those as notifications for Facebook, WhatsApp, SMS, Gmail, Twitter, Yahoo Messenger, Google+, Instagram, Skype or Hangouts events, and many more.

You can edit the so-called "Pops" notifications via a built-in image or video editor, or use your own footage to create custom Pops. There are thousands of videos, memes, and GIFs to choose from, so you are very likely to spot one for each of your important contacts. Furthermore, you can even assign different Pops for the same contact in the different messaging apps, so the fun can last even more.

Everything has a downside, and with the Pops up it is the in-app purchasing. The best ready-made Pops in the most popular categories, like "Cats", for example, are going to cost you. Still, there's plenty of free stuff inside that will make you laugh each time that particular person calls you, or sends you a message, so hit the download link below, if you are interested in spicing up your Android phone notifications set.

Symbian used to have the ability to assign videos as ringtones as I used to do that on my Nokia N82. Unfortunately, Nokia removed that ability with newer versions of Symbian.

It is nice to see Pops fill the gap.

Um, no thanks.
I suspect this is geared towards those 20 and under.
