    Hello everyone, I am very new to this forum.

    I wanted to ask you:
    do you know if ICS is supporting modal window? I am referring to what in iPad is something like this: [​IMG]
    It's quite nice because you can perform not so complex tasks within the modal.

    If this kind of element/interaction exists, can anyone provide me an example/screenshot and possibly where I could find stencils (like psd, png, ai, omnigraffle, etc) for it? That would be absolutely fantastic.

    Thank you so much everyone beforehand.

    Cheers!

    This is definitely possible, now my Galaxy Tab 7 plus, although Honeycomb, has a number of apps Samsung has included including Calander, a notes app, calculator etc that run on top of any open application. This is also possible in ICS although I haven't seen a lot of apps that take advantage of it. You should look into OverScreen or Stick It! that seem to allow running an app in a window on top of another app.

    Hi Tom, thanks for the answer. Although I was referring more to performing a task within the same app. For example, writing a new email from the email app, or change some settings within a section of an app. Nevertheless I will take a look at OverScreen and Stick It! as soon as I can.
    Thanks!
