    Much better than I expected. I wanted a night clock that wouldn't burn an image on the screen. A moving screensaver. This is it, and more. It displays upcoming calendar events, number of unread email and unread texts messages, next alarm and more, and has customizable colors. I am very pleased. I wish I had found this month's ago. Good work.

  2. guest-avatar

    Doesn't start. The "back" button when you set it up for a slideshow from dream settings goes to a config screen that insists on clock and other unwanted features. Pressing start on that screen starts a clock display, ignoring the settings you chose which is impossible to exit. I just wanted a screensaver to show images that would look, unlike photos app. This is not that.

  3. guest-avatar

    Really ,like this program. It runs while on charger and displays clock and image on tablet. We use a samsung wall mounted tablet to display family calender info, play music via bluetooth, and display a clock. This program is perfect for applicatio as tab on charger all the time. Would like better and easier image change feature acts glichy and wont always chg with selection, add automatic image change at 1 to 24 hour intervals from preselected images (7 images, one per day, would be nice).

  4. guest-avatar

    Loved this on my Samsung Galaxy. It took a little while to kick in on my new LG G8 Thinq but once it got going at work like a charm! I I'm in the major life transition, so I use the slideshow with a folder with quotes for inspiration and strength. Sometimes it'll catch me at a time when I really need it. Thank you!

  5. guest-avatar

    Nice configurable.screensaver, but the weather doesn't work and that's why I downloaded it.

  6. guest-avatar

    Im using it as an always on display with an old phone. I put "a" in the date section. But it wouldn't always update. Like now it's 10 pm, but it still shows am.

    Great app for free.. I'm glad I purchased it.. Is it possible to have screen change colors with time? Thank you for giving a great free app..

  8. guest-avatar

    Lately notifications that come thru while in daydream don't show up in the notification pull down since one of the recent security patches. On pixel 2 xl Still Really good screen saver that's basically like the always on screen and is very customizable.

  9. guest-avatar

    Does not work in v10 OS. It does not update the time and occasionally will not start. Response: Already contacted support with only response was to submit a bug report. There were already multiple reports of this issue with v10.

  10. guest-avatar

    Good app (paid version) - found xda solution @ emui 8, but missing help how to set/filter notifications. App doesn't have config. section/menu. Must searching on the internet...

    when i start is says to go to daydream settings i click on the icon then it says setting stopped working. Then uninstalls. Bad app

  12. guest-avatar

    Lame!! Should try night clock great app I didn't like that how you have to log in to the app every time u want it to come on

  13. guest-avatar

    Great. But Music module stopped working

  14. guest-avatar

    Doesn't work. Just directs me to the stock android wallpaper screensaver

  15. guest-avatar

    Great app for its widget and especially the screensaver.Still luv it

  16. guest-avatar

    STOPPED USING THIS APP AFTER MANY YEARS OF USE... Now your free version has an annoying random pop up message and the app is causing problems with the phones auto brightness. Auto brightness goes to zero, the darkest it can be in bright sunlight making it almost impossible to use my phone, and this does NOT happen as soon the app is deselecred as the display screensaver. Update 1-10-2020 I emailed the developer as requested they said it's Samsung, and they only test with Google Pixel phones.

  17. guest-avatar

    I enjoy the app quite a bit. I was looking for a dock solution for when my phone is at my desk to provide me an at a glance set of information. unread email's don't seem to work but that's not a dealbreaker for me... The main complaint I have is that I can't customize the movement of the screensaver. I.e. I want the text to stay on the screen longer. I'd also like a little more customization how the information is displayed. Be able to expand some things. I like that you can click on the items and it will open. It's a shame though that it doesn't seem to work on calendar items. And some other notification's that show up. Overall a very useful application, if those few things get fixed/added I'd be willing to buy premium. Oh yeah, not even sure what premium does but it'd be nice to support a responsive developer.

  18. guest-avatar

    Stock android lacks a good screensaver that can be customized, and AMOLED phones lack a good way to define a different AOD while the phone is charging. This accomplishes that in an effective, albeit basic way. I'm happy with what I was able to do and the relative ease of doing it. However, I feel it's missing several key features that prevent it from feeling perfect and finished. The position of the modules is randomized to prevent screen burning in certain devices. Understanding that this is not an issue with my device, this should be optional. A warning could be added if damage is a concern. There should be an option to rearrange the different modules in whatever order you see fit. Speaking of modules, there's no text module to display user-defined text. My name, a cute message, whatever. The music module is extremely basic and feels horrible to use. Song information is missing and can be retrieved. Next / previous buttons are missing. Pulling up the module itself is very difficult, and it isn't immediately clear what it does. The app itself stays in the recent tray after it's closed, rather than terminating. I personally don't like tray clutter, this seems like an oversight.

    It hangs my phone, and don't work properly even I won't use another function until I'm rebooting and uninstall this app...

  20. guest-avatar

    Great app I use it to display my live wallpaper as a screensaver, it is so perfect it seems like it should've been built into android. Although it just stopped displaying my wallpaper today and just shows a blue screen, if it is an issue of paying, where do I pay, I cant remember if I did already but I'll gladly pay again, but where is the buy app button?

  21. guest-avatar

    I really like this app and have been using it for years now, but all versions past 1.9.5 won't show the system wallpaper anymore on my Galaxy S7 running stock Samsung Android 8.0 with the February security patches; instead of the live wallpaper (from your own Wallpaper Changer) I get shown the first default wallpaper that Samsung's wallpaper chooser offers. Could it be that the fixes for Android 8.1 broke something for 8.0? Right now I'm running 1.9.5 that I had a backup of, but I'd rather get rid of the constant update suggestion from Google Play...

  22. guest-avatar

    This is probably the best and most customizable screensaver I game ever found in the store. Everyone should try this. But some more features are required, such as displaying number of SMS and an automatic image slideshow. Please correct an issue: after running the screen saver for some time, the battery icon and battery level disappears.

  23. guest-avatar

    Wont activate..and when it works, goes off at anytime. Nice app, but do something about crashing. Unreliable for now.

  24. guest-avatar

    While it looks nice and has good customization options, the clock did not update in real time. I woke up and saw it displaying 6:01, checked my watch, and it was actually 6:35. Dozed off and woke up again at 9:30, and the display was showing 9:01 instead.

    Faceless Redundant


    Why do I have to use the navigation panel to get out of it? Tapping the screen doesn't work.

  26. guest-avatar

    this is just what i need a simple app to turn off ny screen without having to unlock it when i turn it off. i wish it had a few more options such as gesture to open but double tapping is ok. i would like a few morw options such as gesture or pickup to turn off as well as ability to custom color each notification on the screen. overall however this is a great ap

  27. guest-avatar

    Great app! Couple of premium features that would be great if possible: 1. Checkbox to select "Stop Daydream when battery fully charged" 2. "Dim screen to __% while daydreaming" so users can choose their preferred brightness Cheers, Kal

    Nice app, i used this as a nice display clock in my house. But the weather keeps disappearing. Doesn't matter if i used Yahoo! or OpenWeatherMap. Please fix this in the next update, or maybe add more weather sources like Google.

  29. guest-avatar

    Works well, but it shows up in recent apps and I have to clear it every time.

  30. guest-avatar

    Used to be very happy with this app. Since updating to Oreo the Dim Screen mode associated with the ambient light no longer works. This is the main reason I bought this app. It is now useless.

  31. guest-avatar

    Best 100%working app. Does all what can be done in this sort of app. Like it best that it start from the icon, so if I don't want it to run, I simply lock the screen. Plus it has dimmer option and bunch of others.

  32. guest-avatar

    Really great app. I was looking for a way to show my calendar upcoming events while my phone was charging. This gives me exactly what I wanted. Thanks very much Thomas, great job.

  33. guest-avatar

    Great work!!!!!!! Like everything about your app. Works perfectly well on my Nexus 5. Simple, easy to setup and use.. and of course I bought it! ;-) Could you add more weather providers to your lovely Lucid Daydream app? Thanks again!

  34. guest-avatar

    Best in this category! No ads or malware! Very useful and easy to configure. Many thanks for your hard work!

  35. guest-avatar

    Didn't work at all. The only thing that happened was that on one of the many attempts to start it an error message claimed I hadn't added any images. Considering I had ticked a folder with more than 10k images I find that hard to believe.

  36. guest-avatar

    Michael Wolbert


    Always working great

  37. guest-avatar

    uninstalling because you didn't give any option to fix clock on screen at one point. my s5 has window flipcover so i want to see clock only on top but it is moving up and down on the screen. i like this app because it is in kbs.

  38. guest-avatar

    good alternative daydream option with slideshow (on note 9 but not on s9+) and time. can you please make the slideshow option for daydream for the s9+ without the time square box, flush transparent would be nice

  39. guest-avatar

    Fantastic application for those looking for an alternative to always-on display on AMOLED devices without the feature. Also great communication and responsiveness from the developer.

  40. guest-avatar

    Night Mode module is greyed out since I updated to Android 9 on my Samsung Galaxy S9. will this be enabled again in the near future? the screensaver is too bright at night without it.

  41. guest-avatar

    Very pleased. Attractive display options and a good selection of modules. Much nicer than other daydream clocks I've bought for twice the price.

  42. guest-avatar

    Dim scr to 10% suddenly stopped activating, appointments module doesn't work, weather module doesn't work. Can't unlock phone with fingerprint If lock device is enabled (pattern only)

  43. guest-avatar

    Good.provides valuable info without unlocking phone

  44. guest-avatar

    Used to love this but since the last update it no longer uses my system live wallpaper even though it is selected. Sent an email no response.

  45. guest-avatar

    Finally, a dimmable, resizable night clock, with anti burn in mode. Would just love more fonts!

  46. guest-avatar

    Nice app and fills a hole Android left. Very customisable and works really well.

  47. guest-avatar

    Only the clock works.. The others don't. I wanted it to show everything with battery percentage.. But it only shows time.
