I have a Samsung s22 and a galaxy watch 4. Dynamic spot is often given me notifications about the watch connecting via Bluetooth even when I have the phone in my hand and I'm wearing the watch.
Not sure if indeed the watch is disconnecting and reconnecting like a maniac, not that I can tell or something in the Bluetooth connection makes dynamic spot it's a new connection and raise a notification

Any way to optimize app battery useage...uses low of 2 percent per hour to up to 9. Not using persistent notch or even opening app. Pixel 6 on Android 13. Appears keeping awake in background could be cause??

Hey, bought the pro version for a while now and gotta say it's really useful and cool. I do have some minor suggestions

  • An option to offset the expanded notification from the popup would be useful, that way people can have it below the status bar if they want it to
  • In OneUI's brief notifications, you can have the pop-up emit an effect like having a small pulse emit from the popup. If you could implement that for this version that'd be cool.
  • I'd like to reorder the live activities tiles, so I can group them

I too face the same issue.
And no I don't think it's like the watch is disconnecting and reconnecting. It's more like the app goes idle when phone is idle for some time and when the screen is turned on again the app runs again and thereby detects the BT connection again.
Probably because phone is restricting the running app in background.

The watch may disconnect to save energy. When theres a phone event, the phone connects to the watch to update its data.

dynamicSpot only listenes to Bluetooth connected or disconnected state.

Will investigate if theres a workaround

Why is the music notification persistent? I have tried both PowerAMP and Spotify apps and the notification never goes away even if I have set it up to make the notifiacation dissapear after 5 seconds. Is it intended? Restarting does not fix the problem.

Live Activities Look like this most of the time. restart fixes it but after few hours it looks like this again. i didn't put dynamic spot in the live activites. i had this bug from version 1.55

This happens if the app icon cannot be loaded. what apps do have the dynamicSpot icon?
when you replied i was checking what app was those. but live activites didn't open for my first time. restarted and got it back, and dynamicspot icons change randomly. also i got my apps on live activities disabled. i will reselect them and after i got that problem again i will reply what apps are these.

Anyone else noticed the auto-hide when in foreground function doesn't work properly since v1.56? 9/10 times the small equalizer keeps being displayed when I'm in the Spotify app.

    Honestly, this is a really good app. My current issue is just increasing the status bar height for OneUI 5 as it cuts off right on the edge of the camera cutout and it kinda interferes with some content.

    you can fix that in position settings.

    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😂

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
