I wonder if would be possible set the background shortcut panel showed in the lockscreen.
I see it white and you can change to dark and black but I would like set it 100% transparent.
On the other hand would be great and option to show in the lockscreen but hide the status bar notification and keep it on the top of the notification always (even when a new notification appears)
Thanks in advance
Hey man, thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you're still enjoying the app.
To answer your questions, you can't make notifications transparent. Android will force the white background regardless.
As for the status bar icon, hiding it while keeping the notification top priority was only possible in Android L. Since then, there have been changes in every version of Android.
M got rid of the ability to hide the icon unless you put the app low priority. N made it so low priority apps were hidden from the lockscreen.
It's definitely frustrating and at this point I plan on sending feature requests to some of the more popular ROMS to add a toggle to let users hide the status bar icon on a per-app basis. That way at least I can let hangar users know there's a way and that the restrictions we face right now are Google's doing.
