A new app has been developed for Android that allows users to send messages without switching screens.


HoverChat, the first Egyptian Y Combinator startup and makers of an SMS replacement application currently available for Android smartphones, is focused on making messaging more of a multi-tasking experience.

The app also has a familiar look: its avatars, called "hoverheads," are a lot like Facebook's "chat heads," but HoverChat was actually released the week before Facebook Home's debut, Tech Crunch reported.

To date, the app has seen over 200,000 downloads on Google Play, and is averaging around 8,000 new downloads per day. The majority of its users are under 25, according to data from Google Analytics.
