The previous Facebook was responsible for inspiring many different open source sliding view controls.

Here’s a new open source control from Matthias called ChatHeads that is inspired by the chat heads that appear when you receive a message in the latest Facebook app.

The ChatHeads control provides dragging functionality with the chat heads sticking to the sides, and also act as buttons – all complete with popping and bouncing animations.

Here are a couple of images from the included example application showing a chat head before and after being pressed:

You can find ChatHeads on Github here.

A nice implementation of chat heads into an open source control.
