ohmsford94: miss u

munir amlani: Hey; great, comprehensive video. Very helpful! Thanks for the video.

Insiya Poonawala: It will be difficult to get used to life without Halo again :-)

saintjoestrummer: Great demo - thanks!

Pete B: I have it on my tablet, but didn't know what it was for. Will be activating now, thx

StarGateTech: Halo is DEAD!

Fourz Ell: Excellent video Chris. Thorough, clear, addressing all aspects of the app, stating it's compatibility, great editing, crisp sound.

Fernando Pena: Olha aí o que vem na V11!!! :D

Vikhyat Rawla: +Pranav Mistry new kind of smartphone multitasking, somthing that might interest you.

sheek1982: Whats the RAM & CPU usage?

joyork: Stay-tus, not stattus!

Sourabh Roddey: Paranoid Android 3 is freezing on GS3. Any advise.?

Pham Phuong: The Nexus 7 with +Carbonrom has this feature :-D :-D Watch the video.. Very interesting 

Paranoid Android: *HALO goes open source* *Non PA users:* If you dislike this rom, or us for that matter, make sure to tell your developer to take a look at these two links: 1: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/android_frameworks_base/commit/518c329e8c67fa96b8a8fc22e1962ddb8497c333 2: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/android_packages_apps_Settings/commit/7c739a86e7a02451a63615d71f1b6c846caacdc6 3: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/android_frameworks_base/commit/4f4dd8dceaeafa182d75606f7c3adf59b37d973d Commits are streamlined and squashed, should be merged in a few minutes easily. *HALO is still in beta, code has not been cleaned, support for TabletUI and PIE is unfinished, among other minor things.* But it's ready enough for release. As for the feature itself, we can honestly say it's been the most exciting Android project we've been involved in. We can think of absolutely no reason why anyone would dislike it in its current state. We sincerely hope you enjoy it, whatever rom you run it on. *Facebook:* Again, we would like to thank Facebook’s clever engineers for this idea. We've had a blast bringing expanding to new levels and making it entirely and creatively our own. This isn't just a random carbon copy. We've tried hard to make it adapt to Android as best as we can, starting by extending the basic functionality to cover all apps, of course, and ending with the sort of integration which you would expect from any native feature. *Google:* As for threats to Android’s Ecosystem, until now apps have reacted nicely to our changes. Apps adapt, & simply assume a smaller screen size. We do have some remaining issues to clear & it should be safe enough when we are done. Should *any* doubt come up as to our integrity, we are prepared to do whatever we can to lessen negative impact. We have created HALO white & black lists, we have flagged this feature beta and instructed our users of their responsibility to respect app developers should any issue arise. We earn nothing from our feature and do this solely because we enjoy Android and the freedom of Nexus/AOSP platform. Our goal is not to spread and hack, we simply want to demonstrate the powerful potentials of AOSP platform and its compliant devices as already being the one of the most creative & effective breeding ground that anyone could wish for. *PA users:* There seem to be no crashes or spontaneous reboots that we know of and we have observed and measured it long enough to know it poses no danger to your battery and general performance. Therefore, the code has been merged into our main branch. You'll get all the features and changes that happened outside of HALO's scope. We will try to sum up what we see on Git: - HALO has white & blacklists now. Blacklists prevent apps from pinging through HALO. Whitelists do the same but only allow pinging when you explicitly allow it for individual apps. - Everything is silenced - Dismissal of notifications has been improved - PA Wallpapers has been taken out of the rom and can be downloaded for free on Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paranoid.wallpapers - DCHSPA symbol when the DCHSPA network is being used. - Dirk Rettschlag's Quick unlock - PIE option for empty angle (the start gap) - Brightness dialog updates - StatusBar Date/Time layout changes - Option to use volume keys to control media volume anytime - Launcher does not need to be started when you go in and out of full screen (no more black flicker) Oh, & we took out GooManager since we will soon replace it with a custom solution that will make updating many times more convenient, with full context awareness (Hybrid Properties, Backups, Kernel updates, PA-gapps, etc.). *Downloads* GAPPS: https://mega.co.nz/#!AAwTnbwT!ytb--6GwdLNkVYG49HEjApwqC2IAxaot0Zzs0F-sJYo MAKO: http://www.muel.us/Mako/ Grouper: http://www.muel.us/Grouper/ Tilapia: http://www.muel.us/Tilapia/ FInd5: http://www.muel.us/Find5/ Enjoy!

lv phuc: Hello , I got trouble with arrangement the icon inside the menu . Can you show me how to move them or swap the position of these icon ? Your menu look nice !

Paul M Edwards: +Paranoid Android's #HALO is pretty darn cool! I had no desire to switch from +Android Open Kang Project ROM prior to this, but now I'm going to check out the +Paranoid Android ROM to see what else it offers and perhaps I'll switch.

Gavin lee: Absolutely love this feature on my gs3. 

Ben Leonard: Just added this mod to my phone....pretty innovative

Mark Ashworth: HALO is finally in the latest rom build for my phone and it is as amazing as this video makes it out to be

Mats Estensen: I'm going to try to install the newest +Paranoid Android beta with the all-new HALO multitasking feature, which is inspired by Facebook's Messenger App (which actually is pretty good..). Pretty different from .. everything else, even on Android. It's also open source, so other devs may include it in other ROMs. What do you think of the HALO project? #nexus #paranoidandroid #hellohalo #android 

Warren Kang: Paranoid HALO 가 어떻게 작동하는지 보여주는 비디오. 간만에 롬 바꿔야하나 고민 중.

Ŝâbểř ßåĎãwŷ: استعراض ميزة Halo على #اندرويد بالفيديو Paranoid Android's HALO - Overview

Pankaja Withanachchi: +Udara Jayawardena +Minesh Fernando 

Magnus Bergmark: I wish Google would add this in Android 5. Should I install a new ROM on my Nexus 4, perhaps?

Lichi Wu: This is just too damn cool. Chat head isn't all that interesting but what was inspired from it, overlaying multitasking. That's why I love Android and genuinely think it's good for humanity (no hyperbole). Ideas and implementations are free flowing and consumers like you and I get to enjoy them, no strings attached. http://androidandme.com/2013/06/news/paranoid-androids-halo-multi-tasking-feature-open-sourced/ 

Jeroen de Jong: Are you guys going to include HALO into the rom? I know you think it has been released to early and it is a little rough. But i have been using PAC-rom, and it is litteraly the best feature since expanded notifications and pie. would love to see this implemented. or just dump it in a weekly build or a flashable addon, just to see the reaction that the comunity has!

Mohamed Sehsah: WOW ! 

Keven Gélinas: J'ai bien aimer le concept mais le premier beta m'as pas impressionné mais les tweak ajouté a cette version me redonne le gout de l'essayer vraiment intéressant en plus qu'il le sorte en open source

João Pardinha: Paranoid Android's HALO

Ahmed Saber: Can I Add HALO To TO Cyanogenmod ?

Miguel Silva: É por isto que gosto do android, qualquer coisa é possível e não é necessário esperar que uma apple ou microsoft decida que algo é bom o suficiente para fazer parte da framework, os developers vão fazê-lo e em open-source!

José Roberto Nuñez: Vídeo review de paranoidandroid halo. 

John Prime: #HALO #ParanoidAndroid

Bernhard Strilka: Halo - real cool stuff. Works also on my +OPPO Find5 running +XenonHD . Thank you +Paranoid Android . http://youtu.be/d5WljHcOyXs

Chris Quinn: With all this iOS 7 news. I thought I would bring it back to Android. The Paranoid Android team has released it's open source code for Halo. Man I can't wait for this to become stock one day in Android. I just can't see how this can be passed up. Check out the video Below!

Riinav Gangar: #Halo is OpenSourced and it's pretty Cool #ParanoidAndroid is a real muscle in #AOSP World ;) http://youtu.be/d5WljHcOyXs

Alex Cruz: Just in case someone has questions about Halo and/or how to activate it.....

Oscar Barrios: This is the kind of stuff you can do in #android and makes is more interesting than #ios or #winpo for someone like me

Francesco Pira: best +Paranoid Android review till today. great feature! thank you devs!

International Code Design, Incorporated: International Code Design Incorporated is always fascinated by new implementations of mobile technologies. Expanding an existing (and still new) feature to be open source - allowing for new means of notification management and multitasking for relevant applications - is an example of the kind of innovation that we strive for in our own technology endeavors. Plenty of applications already support HALO with more to be expected. Kudos to the Paranoid Android Team for exemplifying exactly what systems like Android were built for, open source innovation. For more stories like this one, be sure to follow our blog at http://i-codedesign.tumblr.com!

Naveed M: I just realized my android phone has this HALO feature. It's pretty freaking cool.

Akio Yosida: paranoid androidのhaloのソースコードが公表されました すでにUKGではhaloが実装されたようです

Neil Oosthuizen: Had a field day with the stock rom on my S3... perhaps one of the apps or the fact that it is rooted but it was slow and buggy... time to see what all the fuss about HALO is ;) 

Matt Graves: This is a phenomenal! I have had it as part of RootBox all along and didn't know what it did! This is one reason I love Android. The multitasking is great but this is multitasking AwesomeSauce
