How can I downgrade? This new update has screwed up my system. The screen on the phone turns to 50%. everything is small and not workable. Then sometimes it pops up to normal view for a couple seconds but then shrinks again.
Had no issues on the previous version

[BUG REPORT]
1.- Many apps swiping the big notification doesn't remove the little one (and the button mark doesn't work either). The same behavior happens with other apps with "temporary" notifications (obviously not the static ones as music player or timers).
2.- Some apps when the notification first appears is rendered partially, kind of cut sharp at the left end (sorry, didn't take screenshot).
3.- Idk why, but some apps cannot use the scroll through an audio playing. In Poweramp works great, same in Spotify, but Smart Audio Book player doesn't work, you cannot move forward or backwards in the audio. The render works fine, but the audio doesn't move and when you release the "point" with the position, it comes back to where it was.

[FEATURE REQUEST]
Please, please add the reply option in the chat apps (whatsapp, telegram, intagram, etc).

Thanks for amazing app, I bought the pro version because I see the potential, and I know it's in beta, but it's pretty buggy right now.
I see frequently updates, and surely it will become even better than the iPhone one :)

There is a problem while animating in applications, it wasn't there before. WhatsApp, textra. The problem is on the left side when opening the notification.

i dont think this is releated to an app. Apps cant modify system in this way. Android restrictions

Ok. Rolled back to v 1.07 found on APK mirror.
Gonna skip v.1.10 since it's buggy for me and wait for next update.

1. which app do you mean? need this for testing
2. never had this problem, what phone do you use?
3. Apps have to implement media notifications properly, other wise it may not work of course

Direct reply may follow in the future :)

  • Does the system notification get removed?
  • You mean the small popup from dynamicSpot stays visible?
  • Which apps does this happen? Like WhatsApp, Email or similar?

  • Does the system notification get removed? - Yes.
  • You mean the small popup from dynamicSpot stays visible? Yes.
  • Which apps does this happen? Like WhatsApp, Email or similar? I forgot which apps I saw it with but I will watch for it in the new 1.10 & see if it still happens. I haven't seen it yet since the update.
Keep up the great work. You are much appreciated here in the US!

@Jawomo Can you make the swipe for the larger pill box to be less sticky. When I try to swipe to the right, it hesitates & seems like it's sticky. I can even see it in your demo video above. Or at least put an option in there to be a smooth or sticky swipe to remove the pill notification?

1.- WhatsApp, Gmail and Telegram are the ones I remember now.
2.- Samsung Galaxy S21 (the small regular one, exynos processor).
3.- In the regular notification, with Smart Audiobook the scrolling through audio works fine... that's why it was a surprise it didn't work on your app "large notification" given that other audio apps works lawlessly.

About the reply on the notification... bravo sir... you know your user base.

I don't know if you have to code the render of the notifications both small and large per app, or if an api take care of it, but there are a lot of apps that would get awesome features with your app. It has unlimited potential (maybe limited by android notifications), I freaking love it!! (ok, right now I kindda hate it a little when it bugs out, but I'm looking towards where it's going, and it'll be amazeballs!).

Also, kudos for rolling out updates so fast... this is crucial for retaining and increasing user adoption, and show us (the ones who paid for the app), that you really care for it.
Thanks again man, great work. I'll keep in touch as I notice bugs or see potential useful features :)

    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

    The app works great but it still sends me pop-ups from apps when focus mode is on (digital well-being), and also a major bug that's discouraging me from going pro is that it keeps stopping. I've turned on auto start and also turned off the battery optimization, but it still stops. I want to buy you a coffee but the fact it's stopping all the time, discourages me.
    Will check crash reports for miui.
    Miui is also known for killing apps in background, so its a general issue

    Are you on 1.54 101132?

    thanks. mine fixed too. but another bug happend after restarting... now it looks like this. i reselected my apps but still the same

    Edit: After 2 RESTARTS now it's fixed. no need help

    samsung users can already disable notification popups without this. just go to settings then go to apps, from there disable notification popup for every app one by one. works on one ui 4 and one ui 5. didn't test it on older versions.
    Sure but its much more complicated and time consuming

    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.

    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


    MUSIC CONTROLS

    • Next / Prev
