One of the things that makes the HiOS 4.1 on the Camon 11 and Camon 11 Pro unique and different from other custom UIs is the way it is able to embed some useful apps into the OS so you don’t have to download such apps again. On of such apps is the FooView. FooView is a floating app.
What Are Floating Apps?
Floating apps are apps that are used to quickly access other apps on a device at any time regardless of what you are doing or what page you are on. Floating apps remain on the screen and in some cases can be slightly hidden but do not completely disappear.
Why Is Foo View Different?
The FooView was formally named T-Point and it was later modified and upgraded. FooView is a carefully designed to work with the HiOS and therefore, you won’t experience the frequent crashing experienced on a lot of 3rdparty apps. This doesn’t mean it doesn’t work with other devices or another custom OS. It does work and works well too.
Also, the FooView comes with a lot more functionality than other floating apps and is more fluid. The navigation is so fluid and efficient, you would really get addicted to it once you start using it.
How To Use The FooView?
The FooView is quite easy to use since it is pre-installed on the Camon 11 Pro. Just swipe down the navigation panel and click on FooView icon to activate it. Once it is activated, you would see the FooView app floating on the side of the screen.
How does FooView Work?
Once activated, you click and hold the floating icon to use it. Once you click and hold it, the full menu would appear. Still holding down, navigate various shortcuts by sliding across the screen. Please note that once you click and hold, you have to slide across the screen to navigate. The moment you take your hands off the screen, the menu closes.
