[BUG REPORT]
I had an issue since installing the app that didn't happen before. I didn't install any other app or touch any config, nor security patches or anything.
The only thing different before and after the issue started is the installation of dynamicSpot.
The issue is: When I turn on Do not distub, the exceptions are reseted to "none" instead of alarm and media as I have it set up.
Idk how this might be related to dynamicSpot, but since is the only thing changed, maybe it got something to do with it?
I'm on a Samsung S21 Android 12 and v 1.11 of dynamicSpot.|
I attach a picture of how I have it set up, but without any discernable pattern, it resets to "none".
Could this be related to the app???
Thanks in advanced :)

EDIT: It's definitively the app, I can reproduce it every time just by pressing the "play" button on the app screen, it resets the configuration on the Do Not Disturb set up screen.
This is a serious bug, if I didn't noticed it, I could miss my alarm, therefor not arriving to work on time. This fix must be a priority Mr. Dev (@Jawomo) .

Attached a video showing behavior, more useful than a screenshot.

Is auto expand notification option still on the roadmap - since I am not able to see full the content automatically like the popup similar to native behavior in some apps.

Instead, it redirects me to opening the actual app [CNN] instead of just showing the notification.
Auto expand is still on the roadmap, but i cant give you an eta.

You can change interaction settings to expand on click btw.

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 definitely am on my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. And like you, dS doesn't show up in any stats. Was at 11% this morning and usually around 55%. :/

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.
Negative battery drain on the OnePlus 8 OOS11 running both AOD Notify and dynamic Spot.

What you might be experiencing is Android runtime (ART) which includes a just-in-time (JIT) compiler with code profiling continually improving the performance of Android apps as they run even for freshly installed 3rd party apps such as dynamic Spot.

ART is equipped with an Ahead-of-Time [AOT] compiler. During the app’s installation phase, it statically translates the DEX bytecode into machine code and stores in the device’s storage. This is a one-time event which happens when the app is first installed on the device which might cause the drain [maybe not].

Allow 24 - 72 hours to determine whether or not battery drain is really the culprit.

I have been using this app (and AODnotify) for about a week now. I can say with certainty that my battery is about 20% less than what I was normally seeing, i.e. if I was seeing the battery to be around 70% before installing these apps, I'm now seeing it is just about 50%. This has been happening pretty consistently.

Today, I have disabled AODnotify. I'll watch the battery drain for next few days. If the drain continues, then this app would be the culprit. If not, then it is either AODnotify or the fact that both should not be running together.

I'm using Samsung S22 Ultra (Snapdragon) on OneUI 4.1.

Power off your Sammie while dynamic Spot is installed and running [do not restart] for a minute or 2 and power back on.
-- Monitor battery usage on an hourly basis.

    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?

    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?

    Will be optimized in next beta

    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 :)
