"Android App Of The Week"
"Pops – Themes For Your Alerts, is a completely original and new way to look at your notifications...Choose any one of the many different animations or videos available to download and instead of that boring little icon, get a delicious blast of notification delight across your screen!"
"If you're looking to spice up your mobile notifications a bit, you might just want to check out a new Android application called Pops. Pops is a full rework of your Android notifications, and it provides a neat little animation (or user uploaded video) instead of just a ringtone and a new icon in your notification bar. Though this may sound extremely intrusive and annoying, it's really not. That's because Pops only enables these video notifications when your device's screen is off. "
Phil Esposito, www.AndroidGuys.com
"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."
Jared DiPane, www.AndroidCentral.com
"If you’re the kind of person who likes to personalize your ringtones based on who is calling you, you’ll probably love having the ability to add a little bit of pizzazz to your message notifications too."
Nancy Messieh, www.thenextweb.com

Really great idea but I've uninstalled it because the overall experience is just too fiddly and the results aren't worth the effort.

SMS pop always shows "7 hours ago", rather than the exact time the text was received. Bring in some more pops too! Other than that I really like it!

They reply fast to mail. =) the app supports only gmail at the moment, no other providers. Facebook is still buggy no google+ implementation, but they've told me that all of this is being taken care of soon. Looking forward
