Bought the premium version, but even with all permissions enabled it doesn't work. Only the charging LED seems to work, I don't get any notification LEDs sadly.
You didn't mention your device. The idea is, though, to test the free version first, then buy premium when you're satisfied. Did it work on the free version? Look for contact details on the Play Store page to ask for a refund if needed.

Hey, is there a way to disable the text and logo shown when fingerprint is enabled? Way too much text that could cause a burn in.

There's a problem with this for me too. You have to disable the charging LED. Otherwise it will not work for notification.

Also, I would like some response from the dev before I buy. It seems like he abandoned this app. The edge and buddy are by far the most potentially amazing app on this area. I would love to support further development.

I really miss the Moto Display. There were absolutely no settings in that app and worked perfectly. This app is the one that mostly resembles that. It's really a great app.

I would add to the edge multiple apps to notification, instead of showing one by one.

I would add the buddy the fix for charging light, and specially the ability to center notifications on the middle of the screen. Also, maybe touching the icon to open the app. That would be great.

This app would be very good if it didn't eat up the battery with tremendous force. I have apps that work in the background, but they don't affect battery consumption. The phone goes into a deep sleep when the screen is turned off. This app does not let the phone sleep at all. Why is it needed at all then?

I have a Oneplus 7T running Android 11. I installed this app, and when I use the test button in the app it seems work as expected. It will work as expected exactly once without a reboot. After the second notification comes in the phone turns on the whole screen, and then times out in the normal fashion . No notification dot/led appears at all after the first time. :-(

I have tried the force enable option, but that didn't seem to make any difference.
Can anyone help with this, or suggest another app that works like this?
I want it to work, but if I only get a notification once per boot cycle I am going to have to try something else.

    So I was annoyed not having an LED notification light on oneplus 6t so I tried to make one of my own;).
    As OP6T has amoled display whenever a desired notification comes the app brings in a black screen with notification LED looking animation.

    Though this is tested on OP6T, it should be working for most Android Oreo and later phones.
    If not working for your phone, I'll suggest you to send me logs at [email protected]

    To use it:
    Install App.
    Disable any battery optimisation for the app.
    Give notification access permission.
    Give full screen permission(if any required for your phone)
    Select apps you want notifications for, by choosing a color (Only apps you set a color to enables LEDs).
    Note: On successfully selecting a color for an app the text in which the App name is written should change to that color
    Thats it.

    For MIUI 11 devices make sure that AutoStart is enabled in App Info. Also check "Show on lock screen" permission in other settings.

    Note: To turn off the LED and to unlock phone double tap anywhere on the screen or use power button.

    App now available on Play Store, please rate and share if you liked the app.

    6. Do not post or request warez.

    If a piece of software requires you to pay to use it, then pay for it. We do not accept warez nor do we permit members to request, post, promote or describe ways in which warez, cracks, serial codes or other means of avoiding payment, can be obtained or used.

    Please keep the conversation respectful and constructive. Your €1.3($1.5?) contribution does not entitle you to spread discredit about a developer or their work. If we encounter apps that obviously violate our terms we will step in but NotifyBuddy has a 4.0 ⭐ rating with 1M+ installs on the Play Store. We should all keep in mind that the amount of work and love put into an application like this is tremendous. Not to mention the headaches it brings to devs to make something compatible with the hundreds of Android powered devices out there. In return of all the amazing development shared on these grounds (with all core functionality free!) we expect at least some humility and basic respect from our members towards our most invaluable assets: the developers.

    Something not working? Do your research, provide logs, full technical details and anything that may be relevant to development. Stating something like "boohoo it doesn't work so fix it!" doesn't help anyone. We're a community, help one another. Detail any issue to the developer when needed. Thank you for your kindness.

    If you have any questions or comments about this, please feel free to PM me.

    Have a great day!

    Same here. Also, an off switch for each app would be more convenient instead of picking white colour.
    This is just what I needed, works great on my phone. Thank you!
    Added an on/off switch, thanks for feedback
