This app uses Accessibility services. This app will only use Accessibility services to detect the current active app, so it can show the overlay with the apps chosen by you in the configuration.

Note: Android Auto is not supported. Unfortunately Google doesn't allow to show an overlay on Android Auto.

I really like the floating widget when using Google maps. But it doesn't always work. If I reboot my phone it works fine when I launch Google maps. But then later when I go to use Google maps again and the altimeter widget appears, it just shows zero for altitude. I have to reboot the phone to get it to work again. Not good for a paid app.

Takes forever to get the altitude and then it works for less than a minute. Installed another altimeter app which shows the altitude accurately all the time, so the problem is not with the phone. Waste of money! Edit: The old Navmeter app does the same, FOR FREE.

Shuts down periodically, and requires uninstall/reinstall. Edit: it still shuts down, and no response from developer. Edit: Seems to be fine after the update about a week ago. I still like this app because it is unobtrusive when using Google Maps.
