[APP] dynamicSpot - iPhone 14 Pro Dynamic Island notifications for android!

Search This thread
Really strange. Guess uninstall, restart phone and reinstall should fix all problems then.
Uninstalled, restarted the phone, reinstalled the app.

Pill orientation and everything is fixed including music play pill disappeared when gide time is 5secs.

But now phone app (calling pill) is not at all working, I mean it appear once the call is placed and disappear in just 1 or 2 secs.

Hi,

Uninstalled the app, restart the device and reinstall and reconfigured the app.
{App ver: 1.36
Device: Google Pixel 4a
Android Ver: 13}

Now,
Pill placement and everything is working fine except,
1. Google Phone dialer still works with 5 sec hide duration (whatever will be the hide duration calling pill will appear for that time period only), while music app stays as long as music is playing irrespective of the hide duration setting.
2. Calling timer is not at all working (stays on 00:00 or some random value).
3. During a working/live pill if we open the dynamic island app then pill will reappear (no problem) but once that app get minimize then pill should reappear as earlier, but it won't unless from inside dynamic island app I force a notification from the top right notification button.

I really appreciate your responses and effort to make app more and more efficient and useful for the users.

I'm iqoo 9 pro user. I love this app and I'm purchased it's pro version. But I'm facing one issue, all the time dynamicSpot option is automatically off inside accessibility settings that's why app is not working . All the time i have to go and on the settings after working this app again some time it's automatically off. Experience is not good.

Give auto start permission, and do not optimize the settings in the battery (or it is better to convert to system application)

When I'm open the notification and choose the apps option and trying to scroll down to select the apps, the app i shut down automatically..



My device Is : samsung galaxy s22 ultra
This already happened once. Theres an app installed on your phone which causes the list to crash.

If you scroll slowly you will see it crashes at the same app at bottom of list.

The next app after the app you see is causing the crash. Its sorted alphabetically.

Please disable battery optimization in your phone. Seems the system is killing the app.

Will investigate google dialer.

When you open dynamicSpot all pill notifications get cleared. Thats by purpose.

Here are 2 little wishes for a future update:

1. Possibility to choose "Album Covers" standalone alltough Contact Photos is disabled (Example: I dont want to see whatsapp profile Pictures - but music album covers from YouTube Music - was possible in former Version).

2. On my Device (Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite) messages from example WhatsApp are in "wrong" order, if there are more than one in a Chat. Oldest Message should be on top, so you dont have to read from bottom to top.

Nevertheless one of the Greatest Apps i have ever used. Thank you.

I agree with point 2.

I configured a vertical size of -41 so that the small popup stays within the black area of the status bar, however, the application icons are very small.

This issue does not affect music animation, it only affects application icons.

Purpose of the app is to see new messages. So the lastest message is always on top. Otherwise you would not see the latest message if text reaches a specific lenth.
I imagine that an option in which we could choose to toggle (in a loop) the display of small pop-ups that have not yet been seen would be interesting. If I selected (for example) a 24-hour time for "Auto-hide small popup", the app would display all unread notifications in the small popup alternately until 24 hours had passed.
In this case, it would be nice to have an option to select the interval time between showing small pop-ups.

Working on different concepts here. Will take some time though.. will post updates here when possible.

Strange, no problems here. Please try restarting phone once.

Hi I've got an issue with navigation. Maybe same as other report there island will not disappear after closing app. For me it is the maps navigation.

Pressing the "Navigation beenden" Button will not remove the island. Also the button can be pressed multiple time without any feedback.

Ah cool thing I noticed I the navigation in the island itself. Props to you!

But it would be even cooler if you could display more information in the island. For example the amount of km/miles until the next Aktion.

    BUG FIXES REQUEST: Premium/coffee user- Pixel 7

    Item 1) LOVE the Show Always (live activities) feature but forced to disable it due to this issue. The "long press" for screen capture needs to be set to a longer duration, 1.5 - 2 seconds. I am unable to use the native swipe down from top feature to access the quick settings or notifications as even a quick swipe down triggers a screenshot. Pls extend long-press duration & if possible, a user option to select either long-press or double-tap for screenshots would be ideal.

    Item 2) The Show On Lock-screen option has never worked for me, either with Show Clock on Lock-screen on or off. I've been using the premium version over 2 months.. all Pixel & apps updates taken. TIA

    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 :)


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