How many of you are noticing unusual battery drain since installing this app?

My battery stats doesn't show unusual usage for this app. But I'm seeing the battery go down significantly faster than before. I'm using both this app as well as AODnotify from the same developer. I installed both apps at the same time. Not sure which one (or both) is causing battery drain.
I had it with 1.05 from 0% to 3% so I'm back to 1.02 till now. I'm fine with the free version at the moment and I will try the next version when it's not a beta anymore. I don't like to be a beta tester. Don't waste my time 😁 But then maybe I gonna buy it.

I use a amazfit watch for notifications, so it's not that important for me. It's more a gimmick for me at the moment.

I'm also on v1.05 only. But this version is much improved over the initial builds, so I'll stick with it for now. Let's hope the developer finds the cause and fixes it.

As with gimmick, i would say it is only a matter of preference. The Dynamic Island is an invention of sort in a long time from Apple. It does make the notch much more useful and attractive. This app, in trying to replicate it and improve upon it, is a welcome addition to the phone features.

@TheMystic
No front. I know that but it's just my personal opinion. I'm fine with my pocof3 with the little hole and the form I get the notifications. The nice thing is to open notifications directly from the mainscreen without open the notificationpanel from the statusbar

Try to use betterbatterystats to figure it out...

Long time user of all your apps. One of the few apps that I always blindly buy to support (already bought this without testing) :D

The issue that I am facing is that I can see all green ticks for "Select Apps", "Notification Access" & "Draw on screen" plus the testing works flawlessly. However, when a notification does arrive it does absolutely nothing, no pop ups etc. Tested with screen off, screen on, lock screen, home screen etc. but nothing works. Any and all help will be highly appreciated.

P.S: I have aodNotify installed but it is currently disabled both in the "Installed App" section and from the app as well.

I have a Galaxy Z Fold 4 with the following info:

I have the same phone with the exact same software. I was just on the outer screen & have no issue seeing or changing the radio buttons in the Selected Apps in Notifications.

Its not the radio button that is the issue. All radio buttons work fine and everything is set. the issue is when a notification arrives there is no dynamicspot notification on the top.

And I see that you allowed all necessary access. Hmm...I dunno what else would be blocking it. I have AOD Notify on my Fold 4 & it's enabled & they both work fine together. I know that I do not enable the "Block System Popups". "Screen Off" is also disabled on mine. I am on the latest version that came out this morning - 1.07. I would suggest clearing the cache & storage for this app & then uninstall, reboot the phone & reinstall. It could be something with the installation.

Thanks for the quick reply. Just did what you suggested to no avail :(

Block system and Screen off are also disabled for me. Still didn't work. No idea where it is going wrong. weird.

I'm sorry that it's not working for you, especially me being on the same phone with all the same software & I'm not seeing any issues with this. It has to be something else that you have installed that is affecting it.

Do you consider a downgrade just for not having a player "dancing bar"? Cmon...
At the moment this dynamic island is a great ideia, but honestly one must admit that it's all eye candy. Just another way of showing notifications. So why not have it all shining and visualy attractive?? :cool:
I really don't like that static play button at all!!! But that's just me.
Still don't regret buying the Pro version!! And can't wait to see what @Jawomo will com up with in new updates.

Ok, I got your point of view. The way you wrote the other post, I found it a little rude, just that.
I really think an animation would be super welcome. The only thing for now that bugs me is the design language on the player.

No, wasn't meant to be rude!!! Maybe it's just because I haven't had any issues with Dynamicspot like other users unfortunatly have and that was my only downgrade. I was really anxious for the music app animation and then I saw it became a basic play button.
Anyways, I know (I hope) it'll be there sometime soon:giggle:

Thanks....just figured out the issue. Dumb mistake at my end. When I went to apps only Dynamic was allowed to show notification. Changed it to all and worked like a charm.

    Some feedback about the new visualizer would be nice. Thanks!
    Normal and high resolution visualizer both have fps issue.

    Bruhh it went from nearly perfect to deep ****. Earlier version was smooth like flowing water but now more like a ****ing earthquake reading seismograph.

    Normal and high resolution visualizer both are ****ed up.
    Please watch your voice.
    Be kind an polite.

    If you experience any issue, just report and they will be fixed.

    New update is online which should improve the visualizer speed issues.

    Will try to improve further in next releases.

    I have an issue that whenever I slide down from the top of my phone screen or whenever I accidentally touches the dynamic island bar or press and hold on it. It takes screenshots of my phone. Which I didn't set it. And now my phone has lots of unwanted screenshots .. is there any way to stop this?

    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.

    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.
    2
    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 :)

    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 :)


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