Through a clever bit of programming, Android users got the gift of a Moto X Active Display simulator for whatever phone they happened to have — provided that it had an AMOLED screen and ran Android 4.3 — from an XDA-Developers forum member last week. Now, it appears that support for non-AMOLED screens and an older version of Android has been added to it as well, thanks to a recent software update that you’ll do good to take a look at.
Dubbed ActiveNotifications, this Moto X feature simulator was first made available through the Google Play Store and is now on version 1.5. It’s still a work in progress, as it was in the beginning, and besides broader device support, it has also received a number of bug fixes.
According to the official ActiveNotifications Google Play Store page, the latest version adds improved SMS notifications on the Galaxy S2/S3/S4 and HTC One, a fix for the known clock cut-off issue, a bigger main notification icon, and a few more useful changes.
To get the latest version of ActiveNotification for Android on your own device, simply follow the link below.

Wouldn’t it drain battery like hell on LCD screens?
yup. it surely would.
thank god i have an AMOLED screen :3 :3
i use this on iOS all the time, (it’s been built in since iOS 3 or 4) and it’s fine, as long as there is a time out on the screen.
Is it available for Cyprus?
εν εχω ιδεα!!!!!!!
i have on my nexus 4 and battery drains in 10 hours on standby
wow, more than expected, the battery stats back this up, or you just noticed the time difference?
that’s why it’s better for phones w an AMOLED screen; where only the white part of the icons are lit up.
Tried the app but the screen lights up when the phone is in my pocket:-/
your solution to him is to buy a phone half way through it’s life cycle?
N4 was a good phone at launch. It is still a good phone and will be for quite a while. Sorry to break your consumerism wet dream.
we are just over 2 months from it being replaced. I’m not sure it’s good advice is all i was saying.
I am very impressed with this team of developers. They really seem to be working very hard to make this app work for everyone and fix all the bugs. I have tried a couple other of the apps from them too and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of them all, especially considering they were totally free with o ads or in app purchases. I only tried it out of curiosity and honestly didn’t expect to like it or keep it, but after two updates now, it’s become pretty functional.
wow developers amaze me everyday what do they actually major in I know a degree is not enough to develop apps but if I have to major could someone suggest something related to developing

I have it on my nexus 7 (2013). Works fine but screws with daydream
It won’t go into daydream on the charger if I get a notification
