Dot View Mods is a collection of modifications for the HTC One (M8)'s Dot View cover.

This module requires an unlock key for most features: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cmateunlockkey

Features include:
  • Control your music playback and see what's playing right from the Dot View cover.
  • Add gestures to the case and customise them.
  • See notifications at a glance, with support for all Android notifications. (enable the listener in Settings -> Security -> Notifications access)
    * See the full notification when it first comes in: your notifications scroll across the screen.
  • Quick dial contacts right from the cover, with support for up to 9 shortcuts spread across 3 pages.
  • Don't have a contact and still want to dial them quickly? Open up a full dialer right from the cover.

And if you're bored:
  • Play a quick game of Snake, retro-style!

Compatibility:
  • This module was coded with the stock DotMatrix application set to 480DPI, the developer cannot guarantee it'll work fine with other DPIs.
  • If you have other modifications installed, support cannot be guaranteed.

Usage:
Dialer:
Swipe up to call the number, swipe down to close the dialer. If no numbers are input, a swipe up redials the last person called.
Swipe from right to left to delete a number, tap and hold the numbers at the top to delete all.
A future update may add speed dial from the stock dialer.
Snake:
Tap the HTC logo on your cover to pause the game, tap it again to save progress and quit the game.
Shortcuts:
Swipe left and right to change between shortcut pages.

Great collection of m mods for the dot view. I bought the unlock key shortly after I installed it, great work.
Will you be posting future work here @MohammadAG?

Yep, I realised email was bad for this kind of stuff since a lot of it is repeated.

I'm done with exams, so there should be more updates now. I've already added a torch feature.

Awesome, looking forward to it!
I have a couple of suggestions:
- Is it possible to make it so that none of the apps are turned on by default for notifications? So that people have to add the ones they want rather than untick the rest that aren't really useful?
- Is it possible to disable gesture controls completely? so no menu or music control etc?

This module will be perfect for me if it is as close to stock as possible, with the addition of custom notifications of course

Anyway, keep up the awesome work

New version is out:

Major features:
  • Custom gradient support, pick the top and bottom colors from the settings app. Non scrolling text now uses this gradient.
  • Torch feature, either using gestures or menu items

For everything else, see the change log on Xposed.

Reboot immediately after installation.

If it sticks on the screen, that's actually a crash, I'd need a logcat to debug that, but you need to use adb to get that.

The new version, however, has some bug fixes that will should reduce (or prevent) crashes. Try seeing if it still happens there.

I just downloaded the module, tried and purchased the unlock key in less than a minute. Also I wrote a positive comment at Play Store. Great idea @MohammadAG! I hope to see more functions soon!

Best regards.
