Hi there,

with the release of iPhone 14 Pro Apple introduced Dynamic Island. Some call the feature ingenious, some useless.

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
• Maps: Show distance
• Music apps: Music controls
• More to come soon!

MOD Edit:
Hello, the application is very good, I bought the full version but I activate the time that the notifications are seen but nothing happens anyway, the notifications do not disappear

Can you add an option to set the offset position X into the settings? For phone with notch/camera on the edge of the screen, thanks in advance

The basics work great but :
1) When I open and close the dynamic spot app itself, the pop-up bar closes on its own. I have to stop and start the music again to retain it (Even though battery optimisation is turned off.)
2) Please add an option to always show the "Dynamic Spot" on the same spot (pun intended) just for the feel.
3) Add the ability for the notch to adjust itself when 2 notifications arrive because everytime a second notification arrives, it overlaps with the status bar icons.
3) When I set a timer and exit the clock app the timer starts in the pop-up. But when I change the tracks using the dynamic spot and exit the pop-up the timer stops but in system notification it's still running.
4) [Feature Request] when playing music, a waveform animation would be great.
5) [Feature Request] A method to prioritise certain apps notification because definitely you want to see the new text message and other important notifications rather than seeing that your incognito tab is running.

These are just for your kind information just to help you make the app more polished. Loved all your other apps and loving this one as well. Keep up the great work. Love and peace ❤️☮️

Thanks for the application, it works successfully and I bought the pro version. I share it on our country's forum sites. Could you please add Turkish language support?

Loving this app and I bought pro! Just some questions and feature requests.

1. Does it not support google clock yet? Here is what it looks like with an active timer on the clock app on my Pixel 6 Pro.

Feature requests:

1. Auto expand notification option.- Since it blocks popup from notifications this option would make it better to be able to see full notification content automatically like the popup.
2. Hide silent notifications - I currently have a constant silent notification from home assistant app on my phone and that means it always shows it on the island, would love to be able to hide that.
3. More customization options

Installed this on my S22 Ultra! Works great but it I start a timer on the Google clock app instead of the Samsung clock app I don't see how much is left in the popup, is there a way to fix that?

    Hey guys, great app/tweak! Has anyone tried it on Galaxy S10 / S10e? Since the hole punch is on the right side of the screen, i'm guessing it would not work properly? Thanks
    you can move the popup left / right as you like

    Fantastic app.

    The latest version that I have (v1.05) has resolved some of the common complaints.

    Here are some additional suggestions:

    1. App should only activate Dynamic Island ONLY for NEW notifications. Currently, it keeps showing old notifications everytime there is some activity in the notification area. I think you need to use a time-based check to limit the island view for only new notifications, i.e. ignore notifications that are older (earlier) than current time.

    2. Per-app Expanded pop-up option: By default, notifications should appear in small pop-up for all (selected) apps. However, there should be an option to choose expanded pop-up option for user selected apps, so notifications from those apps automatically show up in an expanded form.

    3. Snooze button for notifications in expanded view.

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

    5. Hide button: if user wants to hide an app such as music player from showing continuously on the Dynamic Island. Such apps will show up again only if they are launched again.


    Why does this app need accessibility service permission? It isn't performing any clicking activity on behalf of the user. Is 'Draw over other apps' permission not sufficient?

    Great app and I bought pro

    Feature request:

    1. On new notifications, make able to see full content automatically like the popup.

    2. Make the design language more "Android", mainly in the music controls.
