We installed DynamicSpot on a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, and it worked as intended. Yes, the animations aren’t as smooth as what Apple offers, but there are a bunch of customization options that allow you to choose what kind of notifications you can see, change the size of the island, and show two pop-up notifications at once when they come in. There’s a pro option for $4.99 that unlocks more functions and features, such as an option to see the DynamicSpot on the lock screen.
