After the latest update, "Hide when foreground" option works wrong.

Popup notification of the foreground app isn't shown if I turn back to home screen via home screen button/gesture. To see the popup, I have to open another app or lock and unlock screen.

In short, DynamicSpot sees the app as if it's still running on foreground even if I've turned back to home screen.


1) Open YouTube Music > Play music (or maps, or clock, or phone call etc.)
2) Turn back to home/main screen of the phone. Music player/clock/navigation/phone etc. popups aren't shown.
3) Open another app or lock/unlock screen, then popup notification is shown as it should be.
Thanks for reporting. Working normally here on test devices. What phone do you have?

Thing goes worst now, app is not able to use anymore after clearing data & restart and re-setup the app.
1. Unable to position the pill in the way like I did earlier, phone is pixel4a, camera punch is on left corner, iy can't superimpose live activities pill on camera area and dynamic pill will show the activity on left side of camera punch like it was doing earlier.
2. Dynamic pill is no longer showing the timer for phone, music visualizer also not works as it was working before data wipe and moreover that disappearing in 5sec is still there.

Everything destroyed for me now 😀.
Really strange. Guess uninstall, restart phone and reinstall should fix all problems then.

No thanks, i already have an idea how i can fix it
Also one more thing which can be helpful:

If I turn back to home screen using "back" button/gesture, notification popup (for example music visualizer) just pops without any problem. The issue only occurs when I turn back to main screen via "Home" button/gesture. Weird but it's what it is.

This happens to me when I use Neutron music player. The pill will not go away & has the last song displayed in it. The Neutron app is closed at this point. I have to enlarge the pill & swipe it away & then repeat these steps like 3 or 4 times before it goes away.
For me it is happening with Spotify. Audible does not behave the same way. Doesn't disappear even if I close the app. Have to keep swiping away (after expanding) or close the app and then open DynamicSpot to clear out the island.

Latest beta has separate colors for timer and calls now.

The figma mockups are not accurate unfortunately. Maybe ill have to buy an iPhone :LOL:


I did some more thorough research within the Figma mockup and the actual iPhone UI, and I found little to zero differences..

@Jawomo awesome app, keep going.

2 thing:

1. Will it be possible to hear voice messages from the island?

2. When changing my display resolution on my pixel 7 pro from FHD+ to QHD+ text in the island becomes really small. Would it be possible to add a text size slider?

First of all, thank you for making this amazing apps available to us. This apps have been a must have in my Samsung S22 ultra.

The only problem I observed is with poweramp. The notification remain even when the apps has been closed. The is no way I can clear the notification. I will have to activate the Dynamicspot apps to close it.
Not really sure I follow what you are talking about. I also use Poweramp on my S22 Ultra. If I press on the pill to expand and press the pause button, the pop-up and pill close.

    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.
    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.
    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
    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 :)

    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 :)

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

    • Play / Pause
    • Next / Prev
    • Touchable seekbar

    • Timer aps: Show running timer
    • Battery: Show percentage
    • Maps: Show distance
    • Music apps: Music controls
    • More to come soon!

    Coming soon...

    Like? Did you spot the new feature?
    Thanks for all the feedback! Will take all feature requests into consideration. Have a long roadmap already :)
    Will do my best to fix all the bugs asap.

    If you have any question or suggestions just let me know.

    Just pushed another update dynamicSpot 1.10
    Recoded the whole animation system. No it looks way better.
