On Android 4.2+ you need to enable the "DayDream" in the Android display settings to use & configure the app! Note that the system won't start the daydream if you're display is kept awake! Make sure to disable the "Keep awake while charging" option in the Android developer settings (if you have enabled that before). On Samsung devices, make sure to disable the "keep display on while eye contact is detected" option (or how they call that)
You can use the identifiers here http://developer.android.com/reference/java/text/SimpleDateFormat.html to change the time and date format
ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION - show weather information
ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE & INTERNET - downloading RSS feed/weather/slideshow images
CAMERA - turn camera flashlight on
GET_ACCOUNTS & USE_CREDENTIALS - load RSS feeds from Google account
READ_CALENDAR - display upcoming events

READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - load custom fonts
READ_SMS & RECEIVE_SMS - display unread SMS count
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - cache RSS feeds
Just open the app, drag and drop your widgets, pick your favorite color, and you just made a new custom screensaver.
When your device is docked and charging your widgets will cycle and show right next to each other, or one after another.
Tired of no apps having cool Daydreams? Make your own and include your weather widgets, your photo gallery, email, and clock and moreto make your own screensaver. If you leave your tablet propped up or your android hooked up to a TV, you need to have this app.
Please note that this is limited to using your current wallpaper. This is an Android limitation, and is for security reasons. Apps cannot start live wallpapers that are not part of the same package, because live wallpapers are technically background services.
Each individual live wallpaper can be made compatible with daydreams by its own developer. I plan to do this with the Cypher Cove ones soon. Thanks for your patience.
There are two animation style:
- Old ane "X" animation from Android 4.2
- New one colored dots animation from Android 4.4 KitKat
- Why the animation constantly disappears?
- It is done to prevent screen damage.
Now, there is an easier way simply to launch Daydream, right from your home screen, no matter if you are docked, charging, or neither. Just press the icon, and Daydream will start.
I have heard a few people ask for such a shortcut, so I made this; if you have any suggestions or problems to report, please email me. Also, this is ad-free and requires no permissions.
Ad are displayed only in the configuration screen.
