    I think we'll start to see more and more apps (mobile and web) use the floating circle buttons. They seem to be cropping up all over Google's examples.

      I just launched a build that includes a "hanging button" just like this, so that makes me feel pretty sweet.

      Yes, one can definitely see the pattern there, but they don't really say what are the use cases for that circular button or when should/could it be used. Or do they? I am curious of how they decided it was a good design pattern to go with.

      EDIT: I found this video snippet which explains "the FAB button"
