Review from Rodolfo Martinez
ONE OF THE BEST!! I've been looking for an app like this for some time now. Premium features are worth paying for.
Great app! Motion sensor doesn't seem to work though This app is great. There are a lot of options to get the look perfect. I had a little trouble with the settings (my fault), so I emailed the developer. He was really quick to respond and sort things out. However, the motion sensor still does not work. But this app is still perfect for all of my notification needs! Thank you!
As others have mentioned, "Use as lockscreen" must be selected to use "Auto-wake", and "Use motion sensor" does not work (at least on Moto X 2013). The "Switch off + dismiss" swipe action does not turn off screen unless "Switch off screen on dismiss" is selected (it instead just does the "Unlock device" action). Also, it would be nice to have a root screen off option so that the screen does not immediately lock. When "Use thin clock" is selected (Advanced appearance options | Clock options) the date day is rendered as a strange subscript.
Can't use with finger print reader. The phone goes to administrative unlock which requires my passcode. Very irritating. Also the notifications display in the same area every time so that I worry about screen burn in on AMOLED Displays. Other than that I love this app.
Great Active Display alternative Came from a Motorola phone with Active Display to the GS7, and was very disappointed with the functionality of Samsung's Always on Display. This app has given me back the functionality that I'd grown accustomed to. My only complaint is that occasionally a notification will remain active after the email that prompted it has been deleted, in which case you have to swipe right to manually dismiss the notification.
Can't keep it enabled & no reply from developer The functionally that's supposed to come with this app is exactly what I want. Unfortunately it will not stay enabled even after whitelisting and setting as a startup app with full access. Switched to Notific, which isnt as good, but at least it works.
Almost there, fingerprint scanner iffy Was looking for a replacement for Motorola Display since switching to the Pixel. This almost fully emulates the experience. A few more options to customize positions of the lock, fonts and sizes would be nice. I'm also running into an issue where the screen turns back on after the timeout and doesn't shut off. The fingerprint scanner is hit or miss to unlock.
- Compatibility with Android Nougat
- Fixes a display error in a settings dialog
- Support for fingerprint-lockscreen-security for Marshmallow-devices (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, and Nexus devices)! To activate fingerprint support, select a secure secondary unlock method from within the app ("Use as lockscreen" -> "Settings" -> "Lockscreen Security" -> PIN or Pattern) and the fingerprint reader will work
Great Bytes Software
Simulates a reboot and thus frees up memory - your phone will be much snappier!
