Reviews From google play store

Great and amazing app, but with one downside, sometimes when you pull the thing down, it doesn't come down, instead, it appears behind the current application window but on top of the status bar, you can't push it back up or pull it back down, instead you have to press the home button to dismiss it. I found on way to to this is to pull it down very lightly, so you have to regularly pull it down with unnessesary power to avoid this problem, if you could fix this that would be great thanks

I really enjoy this app ready out of the box it is super elegant and clean. The app makes my notifications easier to see and give the slide down a lot of style and I think the cool part is the notifications themselves can be transparent! I like the way each block is grouped together in little boxes and how I can customize the colors and palette of the buttons. It completes the look I was going for for my phone!๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ’ฏ

Was working perfectly until 2-3 days ago. After update 1, two days ago, the brightness slider failed. After today's update, it's not closing correctly, leaving black bars on the screen, or preventing the keyboard (Gboard) from opening, or closing. Would like to download a previous version, or have to uninstall it. Since notifications are somehow most important, those failures make them unusable - and the keyboard issue makes the whole phone unusable. Please fix it... Thank you! Good app.

Guys the previous version was really good. Now this version is so bad and has soooo many bugs that I can't even. The brightness slider doesn't work. The app hangs when pulled down in the horizontal position. Sometimes when I pull the notification shade down, the original notification shade drops down, stays there and then bounces back up to reveal powershade. So you can imagine why I'm not happy. I would've given you guys 1 star, but since I've been using this app for a long time, 5stars for you.

Best app ever. This is the only app I found that worked as I wanted. But it's missing something that is very important and I hope the developer will fix it. The problem is there is no screen recording option when I activate the new notification bar. If you enable internet data, the screen will be black for few seconds then it goes back as normal. Please fix it.

I'm really thinking of paying for the pro version, only thing is it's a bit expensive. it's working great at the moment, long may it last. Very good app we'll done devs.

I really wish that we could customize the icons to different styles to mimic the UI of specific skins of Android, like One UI, LG UX, etc... If I can make a suggestion, this app and Material Notification Panel would be a HUNDRED TIMES BETTER if you could DISABLE PEEK!!!! I find myself accidentally bringing down the notification panel alllllllll of the time because I can't disable it here.

Edit: thanks for adding that feature! Your app is great!

I installed this app to be able to customise the notification bar and it has so many more good features that I didn't know about when I installed it. I would give it a 5 if it didn't have problems like the screen brightness not working and that sometimes you can't press the icons and have to restart the app

I hate to give this a lower review, but after the latest update, the brightness slider doesn't work. EDIT: To Treydev, you've fixed it in the last update, so thank you. Your constant updates are proof that you listen to user feedback. Keep it going.

There's been some improvement with the update, but... your shortcut is broken on fullscreen apps (I use it for a gesture app - XDA's Nav gestures. Note, I said your shortcut; I'm not talking about remapping fingerprint gestures or default notification shade gestures... I'm talking about mapping your shortcut to gestures on apps). It just pulls down the shade and freezes it until you tap the home button or execute the gesture again. Kindly look into this ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a Motorola Ona Vision and the clock on the top left combines with the camera. Edit: I gave all the permissions, cleared the app data, deleted and downloaded the app again, still nothing. The same issue used to happen in the old version but I could solve it with an option called small top info bar. Edit2:redownloaded and now, my stock notification bar comes and dissappears . Edit3:trigger is not appearing, system notification bar shows up in the last update. I love this app but bugs :/

I've used this app for some time and it's been great. But the last few updates have been really buggy. Even after the few recent app updates, the brightness slider still doesn't work properly, and quite often trying to pull down the notification shade either doesn't work or is extremely laggy.

An app with potential! The UI is great, and customizations too. I use a Huawei Mate 10 lite and some of the issues I had, finally disappeared. However, sometimes I turn on the screen and unlock my phone, the brightness has set to the minimum, which is not what I want, and the app seems to crash because at some point, the OS notification bar pops intead, even if the app has accesibility activated. Also, I would be great if the "eye confort" mode was available on it.

An almost perfect app. But, there few gltches. Some buttons not working or need to relaunch in order to work. Once the app is closed from background app, it disables and need to restart the phone to work again. Please fix this. I wouldve put 5 stars

Overall, pretty great. Sufficient customization without paying. However, after the recent update, I'm unable to us the mobile data tile. A message pops up saying that I can't access it, and the I need to add it to the top two rows - even though it's already there. A fix would be greatly appreciated.

First of all, this is a really great app. But with this new update the trigger used to pull down the quick settings no longer works. (Android 9 btw). If this could be fixed, I will be happy to rate this app 5 stars. The brightness slider is also kinda messed up.

Excellent app to change colours of notification panel, without rooting your phone. Few issues found, but hoping to get resolved by upcoming updates. Guys, buy the premium version to support the developer for his hard and unique work.

Loving it, but lots of issues with it recently. The most annoying being that sometimes when you slide it down, it will just get stuck on top of the screen - and you can't do anything about it unless you go back to homescreen or change apps.

Visually looks beautiful but constantly crashes and has several lock screen errors/freezes. Half of the quick settings don't toggle on/off and instead brings you to the settings menu or does nothing at all. Doesnt run well with Huawei Mate 20 Pro clearly. Newest update broke the screen brightness slider now.

As soon as i started to like this app I realized that the app is full of bugs. Brightness slider doesn't work properly , sometimes notification bar won't come down, app crashes down and shows the system bar instead. This app got a potential but not with current bugs. Hope you'll fix these issues.

14.62 Best version yet! -True quick settings of wifi, mobile data, Bluetooth, Hotspot (without opening the settings app) and third party apps like shazam -Both the brigthness slider and the automatic one finally works without deactivating one another -Haven't experienced any bugs

Have always loved this app, the new setting for overriding launcher gestures is awesome! now I can use any launcher I want, and still use power shade, when it was choppy on some before, top job! ๐Ÿ‘

App generally works well, they fixed the brightness slider so that's good. The main thing is when you have the phone in landscape it doesn't work correctly, my stock drop down menu is visible behind the power shade one.

Good App, awesome features but I found one problem 1) when I am playing pubg the notification panel appears slightly when I touch the corner area ( like opening Map, small options in pubg) unable close the pubg Map. 2) Also in YouTube it always appears when touch the top of the screen

I'm just upgrade to Android 10 and this app not running smoothly anymore. When I use the fingerprint gesture, it shows me both the default notification and PowerShade notification then both disappear. Please fix this asap because I really loves this app.Thanks

Great app that makes the notification shade fully customisable. Very responsive developer who communicates well and fixes any issues quickly. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent program that makes Android even more customizable and enjoyable. Only negative is that in several devices the accessibility setting gets disabled randomly, and the app stops to work.

This app is great, with you letting to change colors and items without having to pay for it. It has some minor bugs but the overall experience is good for my Android 8 phone

Interesting app, I have used this app on my old and new phone, and although my new phone already has the Android P style notification menu, I still use this app for the customization it brings to the table.

[issue text] I'm so, so thankful for this app. Earlier I wrote about the issue I experienced and it got fixed in an update basically immediately. Would consider buying Premium to support the developer(-s). Love it :)

Great app! Developer fixed an issue I was having almost immediately! Very impressed! The only other thing to note is that dynamic color doesn't seem to be working. My understanding is that it is supposed to change the colors of the notifications in the pull down shade, it worked for a short while and then it stopped. This was just an extra feature I enjoyed but the app certainly serves my main purpose otherwise.

Really good app, but one major problem. Sometimes when I swipe down, the default notification bar comes, fix that and I will be very happy ty

A great app, does everything it is supposed to, looks great and everything. But after updating to the latest version Everytime I click on 'mobile data' tile, the app freezes for a couple seconds and a pop-up appears saying "Can't access the Jio4G (Carrier) tile, please place it in your original quick settings first" My mobile data gets toggled anyway but that pop-up and freezing is very annoying. I downloaded an older version from the internet and it works totally fine. No popups Fix, for 5โญs.

They fixed transparent notifications but broke display brightness slider. That was one huge advantage it had over Huawei standard. For sure cannot use this at all now.

Everything is suddenly out of place after the new update. It was working very well until yesterday. Please revert back to the previous version.

It is a great app but suddenly it has stopped working on my device. When the power shade app is open (To change colours etc) the app works, but as soon as I go back it stops. The app is still active in the background with ACCESSIBILITY and NOTIFICATION ACCESS turned ON but it just won't show up. I pull down the notification panel and find my original notification panel(AND IT SUCKS)... I've been using this app for a long time and it's great... PLEASE HELP

Exactly what I was looking for; strange that Android doesn't offer it theirselves. Bought PRO immediately. Unfortunately, at times there are strange things going on with notifications: 1. It shows icons in the top bar but when I drag down it says "No notifications"; 2. When I try to snooze a notification, the snooze prompt keeps hanging there; 3. Some tiles, like Data and GPS, become full screen after I click them but I don't want to wait.

Stress saving app for old and boring phones. But recently I'm facing problems. I update the app regularly so i don't know when bug appeared. I see my notifications in the corner, but when i pull down the Power Shade there is none. (Even the system notifications that you cannot clear). Then i have to stop the app and set permissions again.

Unfortunately, my phone uses the MIUI (I have a Xiaomi) version of Android, and it doesn't work well or consistently with Power Shade. I wish I could replace MIUI with vanilla Android, but I have to live with it and its very poor management of permissions and notifications. When I can I'll switch to stock Android, and install this app.

It's a really good app and allows array of customizable options. Not only that, it looks so nice. But there are a few buttons that don't work. For example, the mobile data button doesn't work, the Shazam button doesn't work and sometimes when scrolling to look at my notifications, the app just lags

I can change the color to match my wallpaper, I love it, no faults so far, keep up the good work and thanks for your efforts.

Its Very Overall Very good and very useful. But i got 2 Problems When I close the app when its running in the background the notification bar switches to phone's default notification bar. The second problem is that when you choose the background colour to black the settings button is invisible. I will greatly be pleased if these 2 issues are fixed. Thanks for this amazing app ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘

Seems to be going backwards instead of forwards on the blackberry key2. I think i'll uninstall for the time being and come back to it in a few months.

Its working excellent, however when i press settings button like every third time it bugs, it opens settings maybe 3 seconds after the press. Using s10 plus

This app is great, I really need it in my life. But it recently stopped working on the lock screen for me. Is there a way you can fix this/tell me how? Thanks.

Has a great idea to it however it has a bug (or maybe intentional ) where it stops working everytime you close the app.

I would use this app, if it hadn't this annoying animation whenever I turn on flight mode or location... Unfortunately there is no setting where I can turn it off, so it will definitely be deleted. Moreover, being asked if I allow the app to turn on Bluetooth is annoying, too so yeah... I love the design and customization options but those things just can't compensate for the other stuff.

It's very good my only issue is when I put the brightness to whatever and lock the screen and unlock it again the brightness come back all over to 100

This really works! And i povw that i get to customize what i want! This is an amazing app and exceeds my expectations!

Works well good app however on nova launcher when swiping down on the home screen it initially opens the normal notification bar then quickly onto power shade creating an annoying delay every time on Mate 20 pro

Great app.. but when i use Gesture or fingerprint to scroll down the notification bar.. i see my old notification bar pop for a sec and disapper and then this returns.. pls rectify.. thats all

When I want to use the panel, whole screen background becomes black and for a few seconds whole mobile stops! Pls fix it!

The shade is not working correctly, the mobile data icon does not work and the battery indicator tells me there is an issue even though my phone is fully charged. Also the shade still shows the other is os notification panel for a split second, then it snaps back to the top and then the shade comes down. Please fix asap... thanks other wise it's great...

some of the buttons are not working fine on pie 9.1. mobile data, Bluetooth, location buttons are not working with single tap, instead we need to press and hold to reach system settings for those buttons. Also screen recorder button is missing. Rest of the features like optimizing colors, icons, layout, animation are incredibly awesome.

Latest update killed the brightness slider. Slider doesn't work but also triggers a different brightness slider underneath the shade.

The app is nice but its not support app tiles like the auto shazam tile and twilight and thats annoying that i cant control them from the notification bar, please work on this ๐Ÿ™

Very nice utility app. Lots of customizations. Works on lockscreen, yay! There are some bugs related to auto brightness when the Power Shade is running, reset to default color option scrambles the ui, have to clear cache and storage for jt it work properly after. Does not override pull down action for some launchers correctly. Would be nice to have more shade colors for settings. Using paid version.

19/10/2019 after update this app is buggy mobile data on off very problem please solve it instantly immediately .... My mobile 7.0

so close to being perfect, but it still has glitches, especially in full screen even when I have the setting turned off for show in fullscreen.(edited) A few bugs were fixed so I am adding a star, but the mobile data switch just sends me to settings. If we can get this fixed, that would be a instant 5 star rating.

I almost gave this app a 3 Star rating; however, I just love it. The app has so much customisation that allows you to make your notification panel look amazing. Honestly it is brilliant, you can have wacky colours or minimalistic appearances like black and grey. However, the annoying issues are present and really need to be sorted soon before I get rid of it reluctantly. To begin with, when enabling/disabli Mobile Data or Hotspot, it rarely works and I have to go through settings, a shame ๐Ÿ˜”

Very cool UI. But the problem is it doesn't always works,I have to open the app to work

I agree with other recent comments: app was great. Now it is off several times a day. Not useable at the moment. Hope the Dev(s) fix this. It was a great app (so good that I paid for the in-app purchase). Edit: Developer is working hard: Fixed the crashes, provided lots of good updates. 5 stars!

When it works it's a very good app to replace system notification panel but unfortunately there are some bugs that have not been fixed since long long time ago such as the not functioning night light (reading mode) toggle and often time it fails to override the system nitification panel.. I am using xiaomi and some other phones from different manufacturers and I keep facing the same issue..

Would have been five stars, except that it does have some minor glitches. for example, when I dragged down when I'm on my home screen, the drawer kind of stutters when it comes down. I'm running the Nova launcher, and I have a Galaxy S10 plus

Even better than the previous one. Wish it was possible to adjust notifications text size.

The most recent update fixed the bug. Thanks! It's working perfectly again.

Clean & Sharp I noticed once thing though. I'm using a Note 8, running Pie. If I swipe down my notification tray from the top from any screen - perfection, however, if I'm on the home page and swipe down from an empty space on my wallpaper, for a split second the original oneui notification tray starts to come down before Power Shade covers it. Fix that and you get the other star.

Sometimes it doesn't show notifications. it just shows the icons but if you swipe down, it's not there.

Due to the app requiring accessibility services, this fails to provide even a tolerable experience on OPPO devices, as when an app uses them you get a constant reminder flashing on your status bar. Plus, tapping on the status bar results in a janky attempt to open then close the shade. It's a great app on most phones, not these.

Awesome the app does what it's supposed to do looks great but I have 1 problem when I press a button to turn it off from the corner a white patch takes over the screen for like half of 1 sec it is annoying if they could fix it it would be a good recommendation from me and 5 stars in an instant

The app works good and has a nice design however there is a bug where when you are in a full screen app and you click on the top, the shade begins to open regardless of whether you've pulled down the status bar. Another feature which would be nice is hiding notification contents on lockscreen or just disabling the shade on lockscreen

Well, it kind of works, but the buttons for mobile data, hotspot, NFC, and battery saver don't toggle those things off and on they open the settings instead. Also, it overrides the notification from my media player with a generic one and the notification doesn't close when you press the X.

This app is amazing! I love using it, there is some delay however when using the fingerprint gesture. But I'm soooo glad you added this option to start with! Made my life so much easier now! Please fix the delay and if possible let us change the animations, and it's speed. Otherwise this app is terrific!

On my Honor View 20 the stock notification bar was getting locked from time to time, meaning I coul not pull it down so... I replaced it with this app... just great... Since I solved the issue with the stock notification bar I don't really need this anymore, but it deserves 5 Stars anyway... it allows you also to add shortcuts to your favorite apps to the notification bar among other features. I had a positive experience with this app . just try it..

Great app for a beautiful replacement for a notification bar. A night mode would be really awesome though!!!

layout is awesome...loved it but that aop doesn't work on lockscreen...when my phone is on lockscreen default notification panel is open....there that app doesn't worl anymore...please solve this and add facility to open in lockscreen.... Also i can't turn on mobile data through this app like a actual notification panel does....solve it plzzzzzzzz

I would have given it a 5๐ŸŒŸ but there is an annoying crash issue in this app. Whenever I open the stock Clock app of my Huawei Mediapad T3 8.0, Power Shade just blocks the accessibility permissions and I can no longer use the notification shade. When I try to open the notification shade, it just forcibly pulls up and counters my slide. After that I have to go to the accessibility settings and disable and enable the accessibility settings of Power Shade.It's annoying as I frequently use Clock.

Great app, works well on tablet, opening to the side you slided from in landscape. One thing I would like to see is supporting Blue Shade on the Amazon Fire through Night Light. Edit: Google Sans doesn't enable properly on the LG Rebel 3 with Android 7.0, but does on a Fire 7 with Android 5.1. ๐Ÿค”

Amazing app and I love the ability to customize the colors. The app crashes frequently.the customization of the colors beings and I'm visually impaired makes this app an amazing app and increases my ability to use my phone. If you have any ideas I would love for it to quit crashing.

Excellent app, except that there is a persistent warning on my battery indicator that there is low battery, even though there is 90% still left. If that's fixed then it's a 5 star from me.

This is very cool application but it will be perfect if you add working (airplane mode, battery saver, mobile data ) buttons. I know about Android restrictions but you can use adb shell to grant required permission (If I'm not mistaken this is WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS) good luck

I'm really liking the customizable status bar. Only issue is not all the buttons work but no issues with generic standard buttons. Hopefully in time these functions work flawlessly. My Galaxy S10 has the blur background option which works nicely with my transparent notification panel

The dark mode is awesome..everything is awesome..but when i turn on dark mode my music playlist turn white ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ ..it sad cuz i pay for it..can u fix it

App works well except for lockscreen. Messages should not be previewed on the lockscreen if set not to. The dropdown shade shoild not show previews of incoming messages. Give us that control because its useless for privacy reasons. Nice app btw. Update: now it's perfect ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

For some reason my phone stopped allowing me to access the pull-down notifications menu unless i was on the home screen or in landscape mode. This app brought back this functionality perfectly!

Brightness slider not working correctly. Please correct.

Progress bar isn't accurate and starts moving even before song starts.

I would like to give 5 stars if it only not consuming too mauch RAM on my phone I have only 2 MB RAM in my phone and when I start up the app it consume about less then 100 gb of RAM... but it continues consumating RAM a bit more every second till become 500 GB Ram consumed and on and on... then my phone gets leggy then UI get crushed and not respond till i reboot my phone Please fix this problem coz i like the app it's the one of its kind ... Awesome Please reply me .. Thank you Developers!

Exactly what I was looking for due to the fact that my phone doesn't edit that annoying white notification shade. This even overwrites launcher gestures to make it seamless. Pirchased pro immediately. Five stars all day.

Brightness adjust problem. Auto brightness is not working properly.

the notification should be made fix to phones, so one do need to always active it.๐Ÿ‘

Very responsive delevoper- I sent an email about a small bug I found and received a response within an hour. Aside from that, the app itself looks so much better than the stock notification bar that comes with my phone and the customization options are great!

Great but can't turn off data by tapping. Need to hold

Crashes all the time. Have to spam back button so that the notification and settings bar roll to their correct position. Even worse ir you switch from portrait to landscape. It's good looking and functional but crashes 10 - 20 times a day.

Developers, the mobile data icon is not working, it's just showing animation, but it's not doing any job turning on or off the mobile data, I wish you'll fix this in next update

Love it! My mate 20 pro has the old style type notification area, this brings it up to date. Let's hope it works without any hiccups. Can't seem to add nfc toggle, can this get added please. Purchased Pro now as well.

its not working properly ..after customising the notification panel ;just say for a minute ,it used to go back to the usual default system notification...plz fixed it cz this is only one that support in my device...for other theme engines root permission is required

Needs work. Most of the toggles dont actually work. Everytime i tried to turn on/off my mobile data, nothing happened. Some toggles cause crashes, some work fine.

It's a good app. But it doesn't really override the store down function of the Custom Launchers (Nova, Microsoft) that I used. Would've been perfect 5 stars if it could do that.
