Always On AMOLED – BETA
Get an always on display for your phone or tablet.
Keep your screen on all the time.
The first open source always on app!
The idea is to provide users with information about, time, date, notifications and more and all without having to touch the phone. Just by looking at it.
This is made possible thanks to AMOLED displays. Most of the screen stays black except for a few pixels.

It drains a lot of battery
To save battery, you can enable some options in the app.
Turn on Battery saver inside the app (works best if your device is rooted)
You can set a Stop Delay inside Automatic Rules, so if you aren’t using your device, the always on screen will go out after a certain time.
You can set the Battery rules in Automatic Rule to make the Always On screen only appear when you have a certain percentage of battery.
You can install and configure Greenify to kill background processes while the screen is off.
You can disable the movement animation to save a bit more battery.
Also, if you want to keep it as a night stand, you should charge the device over night.
I donated but didn’t get the exclusive features
You have to restart the app after donating. If it still doesn’t work, reboot your device.
It doesn’t work/takes a long time to start
Go to your device security settings and make sure “Power button instantly locks” is enabled as well as “Automatically lock” is set to “Immediately”.
If it still doesn’t work properly, open the app itself, scroll down and disable “start after lock”.
It doesn’t show notifications
Notifications don’t work properly with Samsung devices.
This is an issue with the Samsung port of Android.
A reboot might solve this issues sometimes.
I’ll try to create a workaround soon but for now my best advice for you is: stop buying Samsung devices.
I can’t uninstall the app
Click the menu button at the top right (top left if your language is in RTL), from the popup menu, click uninstall, then click OK.?
