Floating Counter is an Android application that allows you to perform counts using floating balloons. Available free of charge on the Google Play Store, the tool can help users who need to register the number of items in an online purchase, clicks made on buttons or access to a specific page. The app saves the shares and allows you to start the amount at any time from the point you stopped.

Step 1. Open the application and tap on the "OK" button in the "Request Permission" window. It will be necessary to authorize on Android that the Floating Counter can overlay on the screen of other apps. To do this, activate the feature "Allow overlapping other apps". Then go back to the counter's home screen;

Step 5. Tap and drag the ball to change its location on the mobile screen. If you no longer want it to appear, drag it to the "X" icon at the bottom of the screen. To view other boats, keep your finger pressed on the ball. In addition to the quick touch to add a number, use the "-" buttons to decrease the count and the arrow icon to reset everything.
