Hello XDA!!

I am here with my very own creation, Always On Display. A true mimic of Samsung's exclusive feature known as Always On Display. This app brings the always on display feature to our current samsung smartphone (must be running on Android N) . This app doesn't require a root access. Just allow some necessary permissions and you are ready to rock. This app is only for testing purpose now, a stable version will be released in near future with more features. Check this link for downloads.

Downloaded & installed, version 1.4.02

First impressions:
- Basic functionality is ok
- Show Notifications option keeps reverting back to disabled
- Costs some battery life. Too soon to tell how much.
