One nice feature integrated in the new Moto X device is the Active Display that give you the possibility to receive notifications even when the screen is off. Here’s a lockscreen with similar functionality : DynamicNotifications
DynamicNotifications is very simple to use and it has just few settings available in the free version.
The configuration screen gives you the possibility to enable it, choose which apps can show you notifications and the screen timeout.
Here’s how the lockscreen will look when you receive a notification.
If you start to slide you’ll see the notification on the top and you can read a preview of it.
If you want to open the app of the notification you need to slide over that icon or you can ignore it and slide over the unlock icon.
It’s really useful because it gives you the possibility to read your notifications without unlocking the screen.
If you like it you can buy the premium version that includes some cool additional features like:
- “Breathing“-feature (notifications reappear after a custom interval)
- “Auto-on” feature (pulling the phone out of your pocket or picking it up from lying face-down (!) on a table shows the notifications screen)
It’s a nice lockscreen app and I found very useful for the screen to turn on automatically if I receive a notification.
