Arc Lighting adds a highly customizable ring of light around the camera cutout of your phone. You can use this light with various indicators such as audio visualization, notification lighting, critical or low battery warnings, as well as a charge indicator. The ring can also appear on your Always-On display. (to make aod work you need to make sure you have downloaded always on amoled and activated it, you also need to make sure samsung stock aod and samsung edge lighting is disabled under samsung display settings you also need to make sure that aod is enabled under arclighting with override set to off)

Features:

- Highly customizable lighting for the Galaxy S20, S20 ultra, S10e, and Note 10 and noteplus devices. Select a variety of colors, animations, and styles.
- Always show ring with various gradient effects (add multiple colors and make them spin for a visual experience)
- An adjustable glow effect that can be turned on or off (sometimes this can cause the light to freeze to a white glow this will be fixed)
- Notification lighting both when the display is on or off (update planned for only the lockscreen or only inapp)
- Music lighting that syncs the light to your music (does not work together with other indicators so other indicators will stop working if you enable music lighting this will be fixed)
- Battery indicator lighting for charging, low and critical battery states. (note it will not work until you configure the zones you want the colors to appearm, not configuring zones can freeze the light entirely this will be fixed)
- Device overheating indicator for gamers and power users (note it will not work until you configure the zones you want the colors to appear, not configuring zones can freeze the light entirely this will be fixed)
- Arc Lighting can be configured to match the color of your wallpaper, the app you're currently in, or both! (this only works for the only show ring and only when you set it to a solid color the option is not available for gradient colors which will be added later)

This app requires certain permissions to function correctly.

Accessibility: This permission is used for the ring to appear over your lock screen, always-on display, and for accessing the color of the current app you're in. This permission is required for the app to function properly.

Draw Over Other Apps: This permission allows the ring to show on top of other apps. This permission is required for the app to function properly.

Microphone Access: This permission is used to analyze the internal device audio for the music lighting. You will not be asked for this permission unless you choose to enable the Audio Visualizer indicator for the ring.

Storage Access: This permission is used to get the color of your wallpaper. You will not be asked for this permission unless you choose to use the color of your wallpaper for the ring.

Notification access: This permission is used to change the color of the ring after notifications

Burn-in concerns: Some Android displays may suffer from mild burn-in if a single item is displayed on the screen for an extremely significant amount of time. If you are concerned about this, feel free to enable the rotation animation in ring settings. That will ensure the display is constantly changing. Alternately, you can disable the default effect to only show the ring while an indicator is being triggered. Note: Samsung Galaxy devices come with burn-in protection that moves the pixels a little each time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

how do i disable individual notifications: currently this is a planned update, you can go into custom colors and set each app you don't want notifying to 100% transparent

light is constantly flashing even if i cleared all notifications: sometimes theres forced notifications such as when you're charging it will force a notification that says you're fast charging, the light will pick up on these you need to hold on these notifications and turn them off to stop the light there should be nothing at all in the notificationpanel, if you still have a flashing light with nothing in the panel contact me.

frozen light: music lighting will disable all other indicators same with battery indicator or battery temp indicator, you need to set custom zones otherwise the light will be frozen, glow also tends to freeze the light so turn that off if it's frozen (this will be fixed in a coming update)

How does it work if the front display is set so the camera is above the top of the display (as the OnePlus 8 can do)

Doesn't work on OP8 Pro with 'Hide the front camera' set in phone settings

Just tried it, and it doesn't work as you'd hope - the ring moves down with the adjusted screen position so it's no longer around the camera. I don't use my phone in that mode so it's not an issue for me.
On a happier note it's quite a cute app. Takes a bit of getting used to though.

One to watch out for: If the 'Enabled' switch is turned off (during the test process) then it drops the 'Accessibility Service' permission. Unfortunately the app doesn't realise that (seems to only test on app startup), so when you re-enable it the app then doesn't work (cos the Accessibility Service permission has dropped). To get around I 'force stopped' the app then started it again. It then does the service check and comes up with the pop-up.

Look forward to having a default 'Off' setting so I can enable only for a few specific apps - I have a lot of apps on there and setting them all to 100% transparent is more work than I fancy.
Cheers, Dave

On my Oneplus 8 IN2013 your ring stays a little bit outside the camera hole.
The camera is a little bit lower and to the left.

DM me if you need help.

This is a great idea. I miss the LED indicator so much after I bought oneplue 8. The position of the ring is not accurate, however, it locates a little up-right of the camera. Hope you can fix it and I will definitly give it a try. Thanks.

Awesome app, like it a lot - is there a way to send some money your way to get rid of the ads, too?

Registered for the Beta, hope it fixes the position issue on the OnePlus 8

Update: Just paid for the full version, got the beta, but none of the cutout settings have any effect on my OnePlus 8, cutout stays in the wrong position.

it seems, the developer was not accounting for the oneplus 8 and 8 pro being different screen sizes please try this file and tell me if it works
