Description:

With Active Display your device can turn on when new notifications arrive and display that information to you on the screen. There is no need to turn your device on every time you hear that distinctive notification sound. Your notifications are right where you need them without all the clutter and free from other distractions. If your device has a proximity sensor, which most touch screen phones have, you are in luck. Active Display will not turn on if it detects something close to this sensor. So if you have your phone stashed away in your pocket or bag, don't worry, it won't turn the display on and waste your battery. And as an added bonus we've included an option to turn on pocket mode. When this is enabled active display will turn on your screen and display your current notifications instantly, provided you have any pending notifications.

  • Instantly turns the device screen on and displays notifications as they arrive
  • Up to 8 notifications displayed in a horizontal strip that can be viewed by touching the notification icon
  • Short notification description can be displayed around the outside of the center ring
  • Touch the center ring notification to view the full notification
  • Unlock the device, open the app for the current notification or dismiss the current notification
  • Set a re-display time to have active display remind you of your pending notifications
  • Adjustable brightness level for when active display turns the screen on
  • Pocket mode which allows active display to turn on once you remove the device from your pocket or bag

Options & Usage:

would be amazing if we can make this the default lock screen? so even with no notifications active display is still our lock screen?

I second that.

ChaOS already has...

Should be able to pick it for PAC pretty easily. I use it, the only "annoying" part is the screen turns on whenever there is light changes - so it might turn on more than expected. But waving your hand over the phone and having it wake to show the date/time is pretty sweet :)
