Sure, you can have just about any custom sound you can think of for notifications on your device, but one thing you can't easily do is make the alerts themselves a bit more fun to receive. Pops, a new style of alerts for your Android device, does just this by allowing users to have different themes of notifications, they are cool animations that make it a bit more fun. They have a constantly expanding gallery of notifications that can be accessed, and users have the ability to create their own as well, making your phone even more personal. Be sure to hop in the market, and check this application out if you want to take your device to the next level. Download information available after the break.

So we are going back to the days of everything stopping when you get an email or text? Apple finally comes into the modern age of notifications and this thing is trying to take us back in time

I installed it just to see. I had the same idea as you. But the app is only ''active'' when the screen is locked. When you play a game or type a SMS you have regular notifications.

Seems like a good practical joke to put that on someones phone.. or to torture someone.. Reminds me of those damn animated smiley crap things people used to download on their PC's and would install adware.

Great, so now I can now turn my Epic 4G into an effing iPhone? Sign me up!!!!11 Can I have their autocorrect-hell keyboard, too? Purty pleeze?

Do not download this app is you like to use your keyboard, even after uninstalling I'm still having issues with my keyboard, I had to completely uninstall my keyboard and then reinstall it.

it's a cool idea. cute app. however, it messes up my keyboard and had to uninstall and restart phone to be able to use key board again
