    I haven't used it on the One but when I tried it out on my phone it wasn't very good. When you unlock your phone it's supposed to go straight to the dynamic notifications lockscreen but it would almost always go to your default lockscreen and after a few seconds, switch over to the dynamic one
    That was a few months ago, not sure how much they improved it

    I'm using it on my One and love it. The battery drain is only pulling 2% and has no issues. It is a lot like the motor x. And you can set up the screen which ever you want. It gives you the option to unlock to home screen, dismiss or take you right yo the app you got the notification for. It's not supposed to take you to the dynamic notification screen like above was mentioned. It also shows the picture and email of the notification without even unlocking your phone completely. I love it. You have to shut off message pop ups if you are using a messaging app for it to work. You can customize colors too.

    Alright im going to try it out for a day or so an see how it goes. By the way when downloading from the play store, you know how it shows what the app collects like it saves your text,contacts,collects info etc etc? Well is it ok for them to do that or safe atleast? I know each app shows it collects certain things but wasnt sure exactly if i should download or not. Its my first time using the play store.

    It's safe.. A lot of them say that. Been using it for a month now. No problems. It will take more then a day or 2 to get used to it. Make sure in dynamic notification settings, select advanced appearance and you can change some more stuff. . Let me knew how you like it..

    I've had it on my One for awhile now and love it, doesn't use much battery at all and also agree it will take more than a day or two to get used to it.

    Another thumbs up here - been using it for months, its brilliant. Worth buying it too so you get the advanced features. Set up correctly, battery drain is kept to a minimum.

    Where did you find breathing notifications? Also go into appearance options and then advanced. See if you checked show picture icon etc. This might be it. Mine shows the text preview if you hold on the text icon before fulky unlocking the phone.

    Ok. I'll have to check mine again and see. I swear I get a message preview.. I'm still using the free version also. What messaging app see you using? I'm using Chomp SMS. A lot of settings in there I had to tweak. Might be in there also. I'll have my wife send a message and recheck.
    Edit. OK my wife just sent me a text with my phone locked. When I long press on the text icon, her face appears, along with the message she sent. But above all that in the to left corner it says Chomp SMS. So it might be my messaging app doing it. Try a secondary messaging app. Let me know bud.

    I'm not too sure. I like trying new things which is why I stuck with Chomp. I've also used Handcent and Go SMS pro. Chomp is the best. Not sure if there is a setting with the stock app. Why don't you try Chomp SMS.. Give it a shot. Also only picture of the person will show up if you are synced to Facebook on the notification screen..

    Ok so under accessibility it shows the dynamic app so i enabled it an it warned me that the app could collect info from texts an more. Is it still safe to agree to it? Also i tested it with the app enabled under the accessibility an now it shows the info when i press the message icon on the lockscreen. Only shows the phone number an time but no message,just a ''null'' word.

    I do not have it checked under accessibility because it says for pre android 4.3 devices... What version android are you running? .. You should be 4.3 by now..if so leave it off. I know for voice mail you'll get the icon and the number that called you..if you just hold it in the center. Mine still shows the text message in the upper left hand corner when I hold it. If you like to fool around just try another messaging app and explore. Like I said, it took me a few tries to get it right. But you will love it. And it's safe. A lot of apps day it collects data. Haven't had an issue. And nobody else...

    Thanks to this post I decided to give this app a test spin. I haven't really put it to the full test drive yet but it seems to be relatively useful and not really impacting battery or functionality.

    One odd thing I can't seem to get around though. I use Daydream to keep my screen on and just a finger tap away to get to my Home screen when on the charger. This app doesn't seem to be able to pop anything up while Daydream is active. It works when I'm on battery but if the Daydream screensaver is running I'm still relying on audible alert or the blinking LED since DN doesn't seem to be able to override it. I did not block any apps in the DN settings so if it's aware Daydream is running it just doesn't seem to be able to do anything about it.

    Pretty much seems like since daydream is built into the phone and not a secondary app DN can't override it. Especially since you have it set to on. I don't use daydream anyway. It looks cool. But why do you want the screen on all the time? Just don't see a reason for it. Just my opinion of course.. Other than that, DN works great.

    I'm having a problem getting the Dashclock widgets to work on my Verizon One (Dashclock permissions error - please uninstall and reinstall) with this app. I've followed the instructions and still can't get it to work. Would love to have the battery widget on the notification screen.

    When I'm at work my phone is on the charger on my desk all the time. It's a pain in the neck to hit the power button every time I want to respond to something when I can just tap the screen to wake it up unlocked and ready to go. I'm going to keep working on DN config and keep it for a while rather than make a snap judgement. I have no problem with paying for Pro version if it proves useful enough that I feel I'd miss it if it was gone.
