The first update just went live on the Play store and on XDA Labs:

1.0.1 (September 26, 2016)
-Fixed crash when toggling service after disabling hide with status bar
-Fixed an issue with opacity of network bar
-More customizable refresh rate, height, and network max. values

Thank you for adding the input field for maximum traffic! I understand and can appreciate your concerns regarding smaller traffic, but sometimes you may want to view a larger bandwidth range. A quick example I can come up with is sending a 6MB photo as a file attachment on skype for me goes instantly, obviously at a rate faster than 200KB/sec.. Also should be good for checking streaming problems, to see if it is a drop or inadequate bandwidth. Anyway thank you for this wonderful app!

Can someone confirm the bars don't show up in the bottom position while using Chrome if the device has a navbar with software buttons? It's the only app I've noticed where this is a problem so far.

Hi,

I just stumbled upon your nice piece of software and I wonder if you plan to keep it updated?

I have a few suggestion:

- usage of Android API for network monitoring (if not already),
- signal overlay,
- adding of upload overlay (and/or merging with the download one),
- charging overlay : the ability to add a min/max that'll trigger an overlay (and a notification) when reached,
- ability to have the informations in the actual notification for it to be useful if people don't want to block it.

Thank a lot!

What Android API for network monitoring? Is there something in addition to the traffic monitor already built in you'd like to see? Right now I believe it combines download and upload.
What would the charging monitor show?
The notification currently acts as a toggle to stop/start the service/overlay.

Sorry for the rudeness of the first point. I just saw your last post and I thought it was the last update.

Yea sorry about that!

Latest changelog:

2.2.1 (June 2, 2018)
-Built with Magisk SU library
-Fixed not starting on boot with Oreo and root functions
-Faster start after boot
-Hide notification from lockscreen on Android O+ (can't show overlays there anymore)
-Added Portuguese translation (thanks Magno!)
