Unique Controls - Change the way you use your device


This app provides 2 great features, they change the way you use your device as soon as you get used to them you will never want to live without them again.

The first one "Halo" is a little chat head that hovers over all your apps. Halo gives you quick access to your notifications (similar to facebook but for every app) by showing them in a beautiful and intuitive way. You can launch, dismiss and scroll trough all of them. if the notification is from a messenger such as WhatsApp, Hangouts Telegram or Facebook you can also reply to the person from whereever you are without opening the actual app.

The second feature is "Pie Controls". Pie controls gives you the power of gesture navigation in whatever app you are. Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to reveal a beautiful menu with your favorite actions.

Both of them are extremely customizable so that you can really make them your own. 

So what are you waiting for, try it out and use android as it should be:)

   notification blacklist from where you can completely hide notifications from 

   specific apps.

• Access to the Pie manager to add custom buttons to your pie controls such as your favorite

    Mohammed Ismail Ansari


    Works great when it does. I experience crashes when trying to change the items in the PIE and at times the items do nothing at all. Apart from these issues, this could've been a 5-star app as this is the closest to what I wanted on my Razer Phone 2.

  2. Lukas Treuer-avatar

    It would a great app, IF IT WOULD ACTUALLY WORK. It used to mostly work, except when I tried setting the camera app as one of the custom pie elements, which led to the app crashing. But now, it isn't working at all. Every time I try to open it, it crashes instantly, every singe time. Tried deleting the data, rebooting the phone, re-installing the app, nothing worked. Please fix. Great app when working correctly, sadly that's not often the case.

  3. Loquacious One-avatar

    Haywire rotation since last update, not happy. This is one seriously confused app. I get it working by uninstalling and starting from scratch since there is no way to backup settings and preferences then it flips out and either won't appear at all or only does on the opposite side of the screen upside down in landscape or bottom of phone in rotation. Please fix this mess, it's no fun. Gave up and uninstalled finally. Kept running even when disabled until permissions were revoked. Bad, buggy app.

  4. Jesus Carrillo-avatar

    I tried to make it work but the floting halo was not co operating. May have been me but no mater. It should gave been user friendly. Luck fellows.

  5. Joseph Garlick-avatar

    I've been searching searching searching for a decent PA_PIE type of navigating my phone since the horrible changes made to PA_PIE. I'd have to say this one wins by far! It even has PA_HALO notification system. I never adopted the HALO system so this review is for the PIE navigation tool. I would totally recommend buying this. It is old but works on my OP5t running android 9.0 (PIE)

  6. Shiva Kumar-avatar

    Crashing constantly on Pixel 2, stable Oreo, after downloading companion app. What should I do? It crashes after 5 seconds of opening app. EDIT: Seems to be fixed now, thanks!

  18. Adam Scanlon-avatar

    After accessibility issue, pie goes to sleep a lot and I have to go to the actual app icon to wake it...if not for Samsungs edge app feature it would be a no go

  19. J.R. Leduc-avatar

    Does what it is meant to do but crashes constantly under Oreo Android even while using Companion. great design tho!

  20. anil patil-avatar

    What's this ? The app is good but the pie doesn't work.... I purchased the app but I think that it is cheated.

    Not working properly on my redmi 3s . Not showing any notification ! Help me

  22. Justin Abraham-avatar

    This app is great but the author has created a newer one called pie controls that is even better. If you don't need the Halo part down load pie controls by this developer only.

  23. Jenson Chandra-avatar

    Updated to 3 stars. Works great but I have to re-enable after every reboot

  24. Luis Alonso-avatar

    Giving it 2 stars because it crashes constantly on my phone. Soon as I boot it up 5 seconds later it crashes. Unusable unfortunately

  41. CJ Laing-avatar

    So happy that someone ended up making the Paranoid Android features into both an Xposed module and an app! It's a wonderful addition to Android and adds both intuitive navigation features, and an amazing way to interact with notifications! 10/10 would recommend!

  42. João Duarte-avatar

    Best app ever not going back to traditional way of using navigation bar.

  43. Taral Patel-avatar

    How to use it

  44. Quintin Brown-avatar

    It'll be prefect when there's an option to have controls on all sides of the screen the user chooses instead of just one side. Also, encountered a glitch that required me to uninstall and reinstall and the app lost my premium purchase functions.

  45. Prosper Mtui-avatar

    i have been looking for this app in centuries,back then was using it in paranoid android i think... am not a rooting guy anymore since am enjoying my samsung experience in s7 edge and it has been a year now. Am loving this app men!!thanks a lot and please keep up the good work.

    Halo verhält sich sehr aufdringlich und aktiviert sich immer wieder von selbst, obwohl ich "hide & silence until unwoken" auswähle. Bitte fixen (Wiko Ridge 4G, Android 4.4.4)

    I liked the pie feature in which 3 buttons show up.... About holo , it doesn't look pretty to those who don't usually get notifications (especially from useful apps).. Pie feature is a great one but its little bit hindering , when i tried to do anything or use any apps ... Those buttons pop up whenever specific area was touched... Also when I was playing games.. I can't even play due to the appearance of those button. Even now I am unable to type properly due to the buttons appearing randomly above the keyboard.. Now uninstalling....

  49. Daniel Bagon-avatar

    I suggest adding the option for a discreet mode where the preview doesnt pop up. Also if it's possible to adjust the speed of the duration of the preview,. Thanks and I'm glad found this app

  50. Edric Orbon-avatar

    It's a useful app but it always loses its permission on accessibility after a few minutes of a locked screen. You need to turn on the permission and activate pie again to run.

  51. Mark Lopez-avatar

    Pie always on bottom puts it on the left side. Even if I turn it off.

  52. Ernie Vega-avatar

    Only thing I'd like is to be able to adjust the window color that comes out after pressing Halo. I'd like to change that tons black background with white text.

  68. Memi M-avatar

    Love it. I've been looking for a quick access notification app for ages and so far this seems to be just perfect. I don't use pie as I have a gesture feature on my phone. It's great to have two awesome features in one app though and that I can choose one or both to activate.

  69. Ara-avatar

    It's pretty good for the most part, but it keeps disabling itself in the accessibility part of my settings. Not sure if this is the app or my phone, but I really like it when it otherwise.

  76. Adam Sambuco-avatar

    Does not work on Android O as of May 27. Refuses to enable because it can not recognize that I have enabled the accessibility service and notification access. However, I want this so badly that I paid for the app in case it ever starts working. Worst of all, it has ads in the paid version.

  77. Indra-avatar

    It will be great if the pie control get updated to the latest version, like in the paranoid Android 2017.

  78. Gaurav Bora-avatar

    Awesome app.

  79. Tre Sturdivant-avatar





    The black list feature you added as per my request is really great.. one more problem i face is that now halo keeps on popping out while typing ... This was not the problem earlier.. One more suggestion, it would be great if you add a feature to switch between different apps via the bubble above them just like fb messenger..

  81. Hani Chaaban-avatar

    Great app, even bought the upgrade. Needs 2 features for me to give 5* (would even donate more $ for them actually): Ability to change colour of battery indicator in PIE (bonus if it changes automatically based on level, 100% = green, 50% = yellow etc) Ability to make Clock/"Status" show up instantly when using PIE instead of slight delay (the grey overlay takes time to show) Great work regardless though, really nice port of ParanoidAndroid's best feature.

  85. Andrew Warner-avatar

    A limit on the number of pie items was introduced. This severely limits the app. Is there a good reason for this? Would it be possible to remove this limitation? I had around 50 pie items previously. I was using it like a dock with access to all my apps that was available any time. This is no longer possible. Please consider restoring that functionality.

  86. Abishek Manikandan-avatar

    Abishek Manikandan


    I love the app and I have bought the full version but there is one major problem. The pie controls are only on the bottom of the screen. The devs should add it to the left and right of the screen. I'll rate 5 stars if the option is added in future updates. That's how I remember it in previous roms eg: cyanogen mod

  87. Loki Darkfire-avatar

    Loved this but the latest update means it'll no longer function on my phone (galaxy s6) just force closes whenever I try to run it, update tried re installing no change

  88. shok trupz-avatar

    Just installed it on my rooted note edge and HALO is working like the good ol roms that used to have it baked in. Dev, keep up the awesome work. I already purchased the full version.

  89. Mike Clark-avatar

    Unless I missed the point of this app completly which had happened before but the free version does nothing until you buy the full unlocked app.

    Wohh..it doesn't deserve only 3.8 star... Com'mn guys... It's Awesome & simplistic.. Great job dev, but in my case it interfere with other app that access accessibility ..like "button mapper" won't work when i activate this app. Please fix it as Soon As Possible (if possible)

  91. Alexander Bl-avatar

    It just closes the app, after rebooting it opens it, shows the menu and closes again, tried to reinstall it, still nothing.

    Perfect app! I would pay $5 for this gem of a tool for my phone! The only question/comment I have is can we have the option to have the pie controls on the left or right of the screen?

  97. Brandon Yang-avatar

    I was so excited to find this! It turns out that it won't work properly on a S8 if the navigation buttons are hidden though. I hid the buttons and only wanted to use pie.

  98. PotatoBot Jinkens-avatar

    PotatoBot Jinkens


    I optimize it, I allow it to draw over apps, I allow it notifications and still can't use Halo or Pie. (Response) still didn't work, also I'm on Google Pixel, is that device supported?

  99. Syvar1-avatar

    The app is okay but why on earth do I have to pay for open source PA features?
