[NEW] aodNotify - Notification Light / LED for OnePlus 8 + No fingerprint burn in!

This app was initially developed for Samsung Galaxy devices with Always on Display. As OnePlus devices will also get an Always on Display soon i decided to create a version specially for OnePlus devices. For now the app runs in a compatibility mode as the Always on Display has not been released yet. App is in beta stage currently.

You need a notification light / LED for your OnePlus 8!
With aodNotify you can easily add a notification light / LED to your OnePlus 8!

You can select different notification light styles and show the notification light around the camera cutout, screen edges or even simulate an notification LED dot in the statusbar of your OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 7!

This app hides the fingerprint icon, so the icon can not burn in your screen! Enjoy your notification light!

MAIN FEATURES
• Notification light / LED for OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 7!
• Double tap to wake when notification arrives!
• Charging / Low battery light / LED


MORE FEATURES
• Notification light styles (around camera, screen, LED dot)
• Custom app / contact colors
• ECO animations to save battery
• Interval mode (on/off) to save battery
• Night times to save battery


BATTERY USAGE PER HOUR ~:
• LED - 7.5%
• LED & INTERVAL - 5.5%
• LED & ECO ANIMATION - 3.5%
• LED & ECO ANIMATION & INTERVAL - 2.5%

Without notification light the app consumes almost 0% battery!


DOWNLOAD:


DEVICES
• OnePlus 8
• OnePlus 7 (untested)??
• OnePlus 6 (untested)??

NOTES
• The app is still in beta stage, errors may occur!!
• OnePlus may block this app with future updates!
• Please check if the app is compatible before updating phone software!
• Altough we never experienced any screen burn in issues on our test devices, we recommend to not keep the notification light / LED active for a long time! Use at you own responsibility!

Working good, glad to see you on the OP8, much appreciated.

Enjoy the coffee, you've earned it.
Thanks! Is the position of the light around the camera ok? or did it need an fine adjustment in Notification light > Dimensions ?

Will add the offset to default if needed

The positioning is real close, good enough for me.
My screenshots don't show it, but, it is ever so slightly off-center, high at the 10:00 position.

Just a BTW/question :

I typically use the hide the cutout option in display settings.
In that mode, the ring light actually sits right below the camera cutout,resting atop the clock (clock still visible,an overlay by the ring).
Is this normal/limitation due to hiding the cutout?

To me, it's perfectly acceptable, it's not as if I'm not going to check my notifications, the app is doing its job, replacing the notification LED.

@Jawomo

Tweaked the X/Y axis position on the camera ring:

X:4

Y:5
Left the size in X&Y as-is.
That puts it perfectly centered.

Will put the adjusted values in next beta. Thanks for testing!

Re the hide cutout option, will check if this can be optimized.

2.5% battery per hour is not too much consumption to show a notification led?
As the LED is display on screen it consumes more energy like a single LED. But you wont let the light be active for hours, normally you check the device every hour at least.. so it wont consume that much battery.

But we can get some cool animations or fullscreen edge lighting, so for me its ok. When an AOD is released by OnePlus it will get lower hopefully.

I'm currently showing 1% usage & using the edge lighting option. (Using the default intelligent battery control setting for this app : Settings > Apps > aodNotify >Battery Optimization)
Definitely don't want to turn this thread into a battery life thread, but, just posting to show that it's not running down the battery in the background.

I've just downloaded this to try it out. Is there a 'test' mode where I can see what it's going to look like? Nothing is shown on the screen at the moment. I'm running 10.5.7 (UK).
