Hi @Jawomo ,

Some notifications like 'uploading video' and 'creating backup' (of Signal Private Messenger for instance) keeps on popping up (both pill sized and expanded pop-ups) even after clearing it multiple times which ultimately forced me to disable 'auto expand' feature.

Not sure if it's just my device that has this issue - Vivo iQOO 7 5G [Android 13]

Do let me know your thoughts on the matter.
Seems signal doesn't use googles notification api correctly...
Recommend disabling auto expand for signal for now. Dont know if i can fix this without infuencing other app negatively

Oh...
Ok I understand.
Thanks for your time and consideration.

I understand it's not the issue of Dynamic Spot, but still, if by any chance it could be troubleshot from your side, please do try if possible.

I'll let you know if anything changes.

Hey I'm having a bit of trouble with live activities. The little version of the pop up that is always on is too big. If change the size of the whole popup it's fine, but I like the normal popup a bit bigger.
I'm on the s21 fe with android 13/one ui 5.

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 :)


MAIN FEATURES
• iPhone 14 Pro Dynamic Island feature
• Mini multitasking for your phone
• Support for timer apps
• Support for music apps
• Customizable interaction


MUSIC CONTROLS
• Play / Pause
• Next / Prev
• Touchable seekbar


SPECIAL EVENTS
• Timer aps: Show running timer
• Battery: Show percentage

• Music apps: Music controls
• More to come soon!

You are using an illegal copy of my app, asking for support here? Are you serious?
No, are you serious? Where do you think you can go with that!? I can use whatever app I want and whichever way I want, this is my right. You'd better focus on making a worth to buy app with no bug or something and then judge me for not buying your app, no offence! I bought alot of apps, just so you know! Peace bro ;)

Uploaded dynamicSpot 1.54 beta #1

Change log:
Added high resolution music visualizer option! On Pixel devices its recommended to disable the adaptive sound setting to use the visualizer!

You can now choose a small version of the "show always" popup, which grows when you get a notification (reselect setting to change)

• Hi-res visualizer
• Visualizer more reactive
• Translations updated
• Fixes & optimizations

The new visualizer option has the same problem as the default one unfortunately, on my device at least (a53 5G). The animation itself seems like it's running at like 10 fps which is not very visually appealing.

An option to customize the visualizer fps could be good, so the default doesnt mess with the adaptive refresh rate some phones have when not touching the screen and also doesnt mess with battery consumption

    Hello, is there any solution so the dynamic spot can stay at the camera hole when the phone is in horizontally?
    If there isn't, can you make it possible?
    Like, keep the dynamic spot in the camera place and rotate icons and so depending on which side of the phone is facing to the ground or something. Nice work by the way :)

    here's some feture request.!


    I didn't write most of these and they are copy paste from the requests you missed, i i edited the copy pastes for easier to understand. 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14 are writen by me


    1) when playing music, a waveform animation would be great.

    2) Ignore silent notifications

    3) a mix between your style of notification and classic One Ui popup, to keep a preview of the message.

    4) Snooze Button for notifications in expanded view.

    5) Option to automatically disable Dynamic Island when an app is in full screen, e.g. YouTube.

    6) tapping opens the app and holding expands, dobule tapping should hide or live activites or more...

    7) silent/vibrate/sound event.

    8) visualization like you did for music, for voice recording, waveform better

    9) i want small circle smaller because it's still a little big for me

    10) support for Monet (Material You) for the background and perhaps background that changes based on Dark and Light mode

    11) Dark mode, i really want it, light mode hurts my eyes on dark places...

    12) tapping on Live Activites opens apps list and holding screen shot, what about if we double tap it shows the shutdown options?

    13) when power saving mode is enabled then animations should be disabled, would be better if we choose when it should enable (must be an option because some people don't want animations to stop)

    14) animations on visualizer are way too smooth, it looks like visualizer is 1 second away from the song (correct me if it doesn't make any sense because i'm bad at english)

    15) camera hole should stay aligned when the phone is horizontal (top liked request in this past 30 days {today is 2023 14 mars} )


    FIXES :

    1) i want to switch apps to another app with live activites but apps that are on SD Card cannot be on the list and it causes bugs, would be better if fixed in the future.

    2) Show as notch still expands and unexpands like the circle front camera, fixing that makes this app better for notch users.

    Edit: I edited this post to fix my mistakes SORRY. because two of these requests was the same thing.

    EDIT: New requests added (2023 Mar 14)

    EDIT: One more request added literally 35 minutes later😂

    Add this feature please
    In case of multiple notification and/or events
    Add option:-
    * Show letest
    *Show them all
    Swipe left or right will remove the preview of notification . and in case there is more notifications next one will be displayed
    multi notification support may get added in a future release, but as the app is used on the fly you will normally no have too many paralles notification
    3
    POLL:
    1. Should notifications of all apps be enabled by default in dynamic spot?
    2. Or should it stay like now, when all apps are disabled by default?
    Or 3. All apps enabled by default but with a toggle to select all/select none.
    3
    When will the app have an option to have the gradient version of the sound virtualizer? Also the expanded pop-up's Roundness should be seperated from the Normal pop-up.
