The bug I reported about connecting the charger and the notification appears after unlocking with the percentage out of date, it is happening with common notifications, I get a WhatsApp notification, after some time I unlock the cell phone and the pill appears and then disappears.

Regarding the battery bug after unlocking the cell phone, it resolved, thanks for the effort in leaving the app 100%

I love this app and it is amazing. I have my phone in dark mode and like the gray border around it. But I also have the pill showing and there is a gray border around the pill when there isn't anything in it (eg. Music) Could you add an option to hide the gray border when it's not in use like the iPhone 14 pro on dark mode??

Hey!! Thank you for the great app!!

I noticed, in the Behavior menu, when toggling on Show always (Live Activities), even when the Show on lockscreen option is off, the Island will show on Lockscreen.

It ends up covering my unlock animation, that's why I would like it not to show on the Lockscreen.

1. Is this intended behavior?
2. Is it possible to be changed?

3. And also, less importantly, one more thing, when music is playing on my Google Nest devices, the music animation will appear still and will only react to any sound from my device (games, system, etc). I am still able to control the YT Music app thorough the Island and the song information is indeed still accurate. It's just the animation that will not detect the music from the YT Music app whether it's playing on any different device.

Thank you and once again, thank you for the amazing app! I've enabled the Pro version since the release day and I've been recommending it to everyone!

1. Thats intended as it simulates a big camera. Some people want to turn their phone into an iphone, so its always visible.

3. The app cant see if you stream or play locally. If i find a way this will be changed

Just want to renew my suggestion to know if it is possible: Can you add the Option "Music Album Covers" as a single option? I would like to set "Use app Icons" and "Use Album Covers" - i dont need to see "Contact Photos".
A few Versions before it was set automatically (without any option for that) - could be a coincidence.

I see! Thank you Jawomo!

Well, so you may treat this as a feedback/request to be able to hide the Show always menu from the Lockscreen.

Or also even better, if you manage to get that sweet sweet unlock animation, then I'd like to keep the Island on my Lockscreen instead. 🥰

mais tarde after the last two updates it left my whatsapp without notification sound, check this out. A suggestion: try to put a dynamic color in the notifications for each app, like, green whatsapp, blue Facebook, red Instagram, etc..Your app is a show!

Should be possible and makes sense.

Hello there, I wanted to thank you so much for the app - I was using it for some time now and bought the premium version, which made it even better - it's so exciting to see its updates! I wanted to ask, if it would be please possible to add the option to change the colour of the grey border (dark theme) to a custom one as it is with the pill? I'd like to make it the same colour as my wallpaper? And if you're planning a dark theme for the app itself? - thank you very much! I love the way it looks ✨

    I just love this app. There are many others now and somehow, they're just not as good as this one, even it being still in beta.
    I do have some ideas and suggestions after using the premium version almost since it was released on the playstore:

    - Progress bar/circle would be useful. Copying files shows the app icon and a message icon on the right. Instead of having the message icon, a progress circle that turns into a bar upon expanding the island, would be very useful.
    - Adding some bounce to the animation when closing the island would improve looks and remeble iOS even more.
    - Silent and mute events animations would be a nice addition, since Android has a shortcut to silence instead of using a physical switch as the iPhone.
    - Track name on music collapsed island next to the album art, as an option, would be useful and dope. Perhaps not permanent, but only when the song changes and displaying its name for a few seconss. And it would be the perfect way of showcasing the island animations, just for the flex.
    - A toggle for switching output media device would be top. Not even iOS has one. It could be located on the expanded music island.
    - As a suggestion, a higher refresh rate/sample rate for the music visualizer would look very dope. Somewhere along 40 to 60 fps just to have a smoother animation, or even better, let the user choose said rate according to its preference. 24, 45 or 60 would be a nice range of options.

    Of course everything is easier said than done, but this is by far one of my favourite apps and I've been using it non stop for months. I'll love to see it keep that #1 spot.

    I have a suggestion for the app. Regarding the music visualizer, the animation should be smoother and add a spinning animation to the album cover. That would be quite similar to the original :)

    Dear devs,
    I absolutely adore your app and have bought the full version. Could you please add a feature? Sliding the small popup to clear the notification, would be great.
    Thanks for your time! :)
    Thanks for the input. This may get added in a future release.

    For now you can clear notif on single tap or long press if you like.

    Hi, first of all thanks for this awesome app.
    Since the 1.55, it won't launch anymore it seems the accessibility services force crash the app.

    I'm on Nothing Phone (1) and restarted twice and reinstall the app on playstore.
    fix is on the way

    Got this text issue when adjusting the spot to the same size as the camera hole, is text kinda broken when adjusting to small sizes? Or is a problem in my end?

    Hi there,

    with the release of iPhone 14 Pro Apple introduced Dynamic Island.

    As i already created a notification light app for Samsung or Pixel phones (aodNotify) i tried to port the app to something like Dynamic Island.

    In android we have no camera islands, but camera spots / cutouts. So that's when dynamicSpot was born :)


    With dynamicSpot you can easily get the iPhone 14 Pro Dynamic Island feature on your device! dynamicSpot gives you Dynamic Island's mini multitasking feature, making it easier to access recent notifications or phone events.

    Just tap on the little black popup to open the displayed app, long press the popup to expand it and view more details.

    iPhone's Dynamic Island is not customizable, but dynamicSpot is! You can change interaction settings, select when to show or hide the popup or which apps should appear.

    As dynamicSpot uses Android's notification system it is compatible with almost all apps, like messaging notification, timer apps and even music apps!
    So if you e.g. start a timer, dynamicSpot will show you the running time.


    The app is in a public beta currently and will be further optimized. Animations may not be super smooth and not all apps be compatible currently.
    But im working on it :)

    • iPhone 14 Pro Dynamic Island feature
