Pops for Android makes notifications cool with jazzy animations and music
Pops for Android has popped up on the Android Market and it promises to make your boring Android notifications cool again. Who said they were boring? Pops did. Well, they are not the most visually exciting experience, we’d admit that, but they’re useful. Pops on the other hand makes them fun while trying to preserve the usefulness.

First, let’s mention that the app is free on the Market and brings a number of packages including music and some kind of animation together, which you can assign to SMS, emails, Facebook, Twitter messages and other notifications. It only works when your device is on standby, though, which actually makes sense. 

Then, when you receive a message your phone screen lights up and music starts playing to liven you up. Hopefully, the message you’ve received matches that cheerful mood.


The best thing? You can add your own videos, which will play whenever you get a new message. For customization addicts, that’s definitely a welcome addition. For the rest - just check out the video below to make up your mind.

i want Nyan Cat to be a part of giving me notifications but not while i'm in the middle of doing something...it's worth trying though.

Pops will be playing ONLY when the mobile device is on idle (the screen is off)
