Since display supports always on you could add notification dot with some configurability for color and apps



  • Hello!

    Thanks for your feedback, we'll forward it to the respective team.

  • I've found a useful app that replaces the LED with a highly configurable on-screen dot, called NotifyBuddy.

    It's a bit fiddly to set up with permissions and battery settings, and I decided I needed to buy premium to test it properly, but now I have it running I'm impressed.

    It doesn't seem to use much battery, less than phone idle and Android system, and is more or less invisible once it's running.

  • Having spent more time with the app mentioned above, I'm still liking it but it's perhaps more than the solution requires. Larger and brighter app icons on the always on display would be enough for me.

  • I registered on this forum just to suggest that - a blinking dot of some kind would be perfect.

    I'd like to add that dot would appear in random places to prevent AMOLED burn-in. Something like raid drop effect or just slowly fade-in fade-out effect would be enough.

  • Yes! I would love that function!

  • @Snoring_Penguin, great suggestion. I agree with your idea.

  • In my case, Notifybuddy did not inform about incoming SMS messages, and each notification was accompanied by a missed call notification. Ultimately, I used the LED Blinker application which does not cause such problems.

    The LED emulation could also be replaced by extending the AoD functionality in such a way that after receiving a defined notification, the screen would remain active until a manual response or for a time defined by the user.

  • Yes I think using AOD is the best solution. NotifyBuddy is an overlay rather than AOD. But I liked being able to use the app icons as dots.

    I was able to receive SMS notifications, - Messages is in the System list rather than the User list. Did you have this list and enabled notifications for the SMS app?

  • I do not remember now. I tried different configurations for several days. It worked at first, then it stopped. Eventually changed the app and it works OK.
