[Daydream][4.0+] Lucid - DayDream Screensaver

As I couldn't find any Daydream for my finally arrived Nexus 7 Dock which fulfills all my needs, I started developing my own one. I'm quite happy with the result and present you:
Lucid - DayDream Screensaver


The main screen of the screensaver is the clock view, which you can see in the 1st attached screenshot. Besides the moving clock & date it can also show:
  • battery level
  • weather
  • unread GMails
  • missed calls
  • new SMS texts
  • next alarm

Also, you get buttons at the bottom to:
  • toggle night-mode (dim the screen)
  • start RSS view (3rd screenshot)
  • start Slideshow view
  • play/pause music (not every music app is supported)

You can change nearly every color/text size from the configuration screen. On Android 4.2, you'll find the Daydream in the Android settings app -> Display -> Daydream. For older versions, there is a launcher icon in your app drawer and the app can automatically start when the device is connected to a power source or placed in a dock.

The app comes as a trial version, in which the use of the daydream is limited to 30 minutes. You can purchase the full version from an in-app option for a fair 0.50 EUR / 0.99 USD.


Download: Play Store

The screensaver should work with every 4.0+ device, however I could only test it on my Nexus 4 & 7. So if you have any issues, let me know

Hi j4velin,

I purchased your app.

Just 2 things :

When i purchase, the only thing that changed is "Purchase App" disappeared.
Is this correct / ok ?

Secondly, if i want to change date format, can i make it into
dd.MMM, YYYY or something like that ?

thanks
greg

it also removed the 30 min limit on the daydream, but that's currently all. and i'll maybe implement some premium-only features in the future

yes, but use small "y" for the year. you can find all available identifiers here: http://developer.android.com/referen...ateFormat.html

Edit also when phone has finished charging it stops daydream doesn't happen with other daydream apps

Hi, thanks for the build.
- first good news. After installing new apk, When going to the modules - night mode, everything is working fine.
- now the bad news - when i selected checkbox (checkbox was hidden behind text darken to 0%" ), screen went off. Now i'm not able to disable checkbox ;-(. When i'm going again to the night mode plugin - screen is going off.

- how to delete application settings without loosing license data?

okay, i'll change that again in the next version. you should be able to delete the apps data in the Android settings, it should restore your license automatically

edit: attached another version which gives you a 3 seconds countdown before actually turning the brightness to 0%

perfect. 3 seconds is quite short time.. but i can handle it.

Thanks very much for support.
T.

P.S. automatic dimming based on the light in Lux is nice feature. i like that.
P.S.S. When changing value of a Lux and i'll put 5.0 and after that delete, delete, delete (to have empty value). Application stops responding.

I just started using this last night. One thing I noticed is that it doesn't seem to update notifications when they come in while the daydream is opened. It only shows the one's it knows about when launched. Is it just me? If not, is there any way to change this?
