Overlay on Android based devices


#1

Hi,

How does overlay work on modern android based devices?
I’m using IFLY GPS and I’d like to be able to overlay a checklist in a similar way to how it is demoed in your videos with IOS. The change log claims feature parity, so I’m assuming it’s possible (and I know it’s possible in android as the features is known as ‘Draw On Top’).
I have tried it in split screen mode, that’s not particular useful, as you lose a lot of screen real estate.

Thanks,

Sorry. That is not a feature supported on Android. In theory it could work if the device manufacturer supports it. Apple has made that a feature as part of their multitasking push. There is nothing we can do as developers to have an app overlay another app unless the manufacturer supports. Our app is designed to work at any resolution so it potentially would work if the manufacturer does support.
