Thanks for the update. The only thing that I see that would be nice is to have the ability to create the swirl instead of a solid line.
Unfortunately that's just not possible on the AOD. I have tried it in many different ways but because the AOD is meant to conserve battery, it does not show animations of that nature. I have seen gifs and other things on the AOD before, but it's a special thing that is specifically locked down for Samsung. In the newest version of Android, changing this setting is not possible. Google has decided that certain settings should no longer be accessible in order to help with privacy, instead of fixing the actual problem they just put a band aid on it and cut developers off at the knees.
I will keep trying and if I find a way to do it, I will of course add it to the app.
Holey Light does this.
Spoke with you in the reviews section and you linked me here. The character limit there is rough going!
So, my bug report I was attempting to deliver over there was that when I download the app and install it and go through the setup, it goes smoothly and I get it setup to how I want and it works. However, if I go into any menu that "LED Me Know" uses for its functionality AFTER it's setup and working, it bungles up and permissions get wonky.
For example, the app was working fine but I had to go into the lock screen settings for a separate reason (to remove shortcut icons), and once I made my changes, the "LED Me Know" notifications weren't working anymore. When I went into the app, I noticed it changed my rectangle light from having round corners to sharp edge corners. I had to adjust the curve slider, and the settings didn't save (when I went back into the app after making the changes, it was like I never made the changes at all).
Another change was that I have all APPS toggled to "OFF" in the menu, and only have Messages and Phone to "On." So long as I don't make any changes in lock screen settings, or AOD settings, those will stay. However, it seems once you access any menus of the phone's default OS that is being used by "LED Me Know," then "LED Me Know" will uncheck everything (including Messages and Phone) in the list.
When these problems start happening, nothing seems to fix it. I can go in there and make changes, but they don't take. Restarting the phone or full power cycling the phone does nothing for any of these errors. I am using Galaxy S10+ and it's brand new (just got it a week ago today). I don't have any other apps installed that could interfere, but I -did- try using "Always On Edge," "Holey Light," and "Good Lock" with "EdgeLighting+" through Galaxy Store first. Those are completely uninstalled but I don't know if they left behind any "breadcrumbs" that would effect this somehow.
Also minor suggestion for the app: It doesn't show navigation buttons on the bottom when in the app (like home), which makes getting in and out of the app a bit cumbersome. Also if you added a "save settings" button to the app it might make a difference or something?
Hope it's clear, it's a bit difficult to explain. No matter the case, I still rate the app 5/5 stars because it does exactly what I need. It's a little hard on the battery, even with AOD set to hidden, but it's worth it. I absolutely have to have notifications because I just don't carry my phone around 24/7, and like to see it flashing if someone tried contacting me when I was away from it.
I would recommend for now uninstalling and reinstalling the app to see if that fixes the issues, as you said nothing else seems to fix it right now.
Uninstalling and reinstalling is the only thing that fixes it, and it seems I have to do it multiple times a day if I am tinkering with settings. Today is a new bug, though. I shut my phone down (after LED Me Know had been working perfect since I posted here yesterday) to install a screen protector. When I booted it back up, the Always On Display was showing (I had it set to hidden through your app) and it wasn't the Edge Clock that I had selected (also as your app recommended), but the full clock... and you guessed it, LED Me Know is not showing notifications since I went back into it and set it back to Edge Clock. Time to reinstall again!
I wonder if there's an Android app that can search for remnants of uninstalled apps. I'd hate to have to factory reset and try again, but I'm getting to that point.
Since I've only had the phone a week, a reset isn't bad right now. I remember how to change the things I want changed so I'll do that and report back later.
I hope you don't have a bigger issue with the phone like a lemon, but please do let me know if that works for you.
All back to how I had it, with LED Me Know installed. The only thing I noticed is that I had to adjust the settings for the ring around the camera several times. I'd get it perfect size, and back out, and then it'd be off a few pixels. So I'd go back, and do it again, and it would keep happening. It seems like it tries to "auto scale" the curve setting a bit with the rest of the sliders, and maybe that throws it off? Because my wife and I both have Galaxy S10's and I noticed the max curvature on her settings can only go to 42, while mine was 47. Then when I opened it back up, it was 43. Some strange behavior going on in that particular slider range.
That being said, the app seems to be working as intended the rest of the way now. Time will tell I suppose.
One thing with factory resetting this phone, is I noticed it reminded me to do a few things that I don't recall it doing last time, like updating Always On Display and updating Lockscreen. I don't recall ever seeing that auto update, and I definitely didn't think about manually updating those apps, so maybe those two apps were out of date? Either way, phone is nice and clean now and no traces of "Always On Edge," "Holey Light," or "Good Lock w/EdgeLighting+" so hopefully no more conflicts. As always, I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again for the tremendous app. Definitely get those settings import/export features done, that would have saved a ton of time in this situation
Very nice, hide AOD feature is a very good idea !
I donate btw...
I set the "led" as a circle juste beside the notch, it's perfect!
I hope It will be possible the exclude some app, the LastPass persistent notification is annoying ...
Great suggestion, I will post some pics and a short video later today, along with the apk.
