AcDisplay is a new way of handling notifications in Android.
It will let you know about new notifications by showing a minimal, beautiful screen, allowing you to open them directly from the lock screen. And if you want to see what's going on, you can simply take your phone out of your pocket to view all the latest notifications, in a similarly pleasing and minimalistic manner.

- Great design and awesome performance.
- Active mode (uses the device's sensors to wake your device up when you need it.)
- The ability to use AcDisplay as lockscreen.
- Incredible level of stability.
- Inactive hours (to save some battery.)
- Enable only while charging.
- Lots of another features such as: Blacklist, Dynamic background, Low-priority notifications and much more.

Great App is sleek, responsive and simple. My only complaint is the music controls timeout after 3 seconds, which is too short and I don't see where I can adjust that. That's really my only complaint.

Erik Blue

Best one I've seen

Umar Sharif

Simply Beautiful Very functional and very elegant app does exactly stay it says perfectly absolutely no complaints! Developer has done an amazing job! Keep it up!

Antonio della Croce

Perfect Elegant, smooth, functional. Lovely transition effect and the notification popup is just brilliant. Worthy of mention: no battery consumption noted.

Jose Figueroa

Love it.. I find that this lockscreen is wayy better than the new "next lockscreen".. One tiny gripe is why no widgets? And why no password or pin option? Y u no do dis?

Esther Langan

Great & simple, but... Thanks to Lollipop's horrible lockscreen changes, I need a lockscreen app. Still haven't found a perfect one. This is the best option, but it's not perfect. Lacks: 1) weather widget (is possible?) 2) ability to better customize wallpaper 3) lockscreen timeout options - phone's set to 4 min but acdisplay locks after 10 seconds & I have to re-enter PIN. Really frustrating. Otherwise, it works quite well & is aesthetically well designed.

Andrew ZC

Gorgeous, but not perfect. The design is amazing, probably the most simple, elegant I've seen in years, however you don't get much personalization and that's fine. My only complain is that the widgets don't work as they should be or it's confusing using them, also the artwork the app gets from other music apps sometimes fails to display, pops 3 seconds and then it turns dark

Mickey Valentine

Awesome. (HTC M8 5.0.1) Best lockscreen/notification display ever. Clean simple and easy to use, looks awesome and works just as awesome. Good job sir. Update: Blacklist works on all my apps. Corner gestures perfect size now for me. Not sure if you can, but to override system lock screen/use only AcDisplay as default system lock. I don't like my HTC one coming up afterwards. Also like another reviewer said, add some minor security like a PIN. Maybe I can disable system lock screen (no lock) and use Ac w/pin.

Lewis Russell

Simple with lots of features One of my favourite lockscrren apps to date, simple, quick and great for amoled displays. Would like to request adding the ability to use the fingerprint on the galaxy s6. Would probably bring a lot of users to the app since I know how many people are looking for good lock screen app for that device.

Anish Sasmal

Perfect The design and minimalistic outlook is extremely beautiful in my opinion. Couple that with its quick access to notifications and it obtains five starts with no doubt. Nexus 6 running Chroma Build 5/7/15

Dmitry Kotov

Lock screen wallpaper Please make possible to choose wallpaper picture or (better) multiple pictures (or directory) for random display.

Thomas Nynas

I cry again Widgets dont work says "settings has stopped" and really needs a passcode, for free ofc.

Alex Thompson

Makes me love using my phone This is what the Android lock screen should be. It is the most intuitive way of managing lock screen notifications I've ever encountered. Only the icons are displayed, so the screen is not cluttered by notification content as with the default lollipop lock screen. The Active Display feature works really well, the animations are slick, and the recent addition of corner gestures to launch the camera and dialer finally makes this lock screen so much better than stock in every way.

anze rihtar

PERFECT! I love the app, very clean and easy to use, animations are also good, but I'd really like the option to add text on the lock screen, otherwise it's great:)

Frank Messe

Wish there was a password lock I love everything about this app, especially the newly added widget support. I would give 5 stars if it had a password screen lock!

iam ryan

Pattern Hope there's an option to have pattern lock or pin. Dont know to others but it always unlocking when i put my phone on my pocket. So some app open accidentally. Using samsung s5 and lenovo p70.

Richard Browning

Fantastic This is a great application, developer responds quickly to issues / bugs :-)

Greg Ballard

Rad Lockscreen Replacement! Personally love the minimalism lockscreen options over all alternatives that I've encountered since swapping to android a couple years ago. . I would love quick access to the music app from the lockscreen. Like unlocking from the player controls to open up the in use media app.! Love it as it though, keep up the awesome work!

Nicolaus Isco

Active mode seems to work again after last update Would be nice to get a useful calendar function

Rowan Hirst

Great but needs things First of all beautiful app I've had for about three months but the new widget feature comes up with a pop up saying settings has crashed when you try to add a widget. Also a security feature is becoming something I want on this now. I know that it might not be completely possible due to the full screen/non full screen feature but a way around this should be possible like other lock screens. Otherwise great app and interface

Viraj Chauhan

Great Update fixed last issue. Would still like a music widget tho

Glauber Lima

Can't uninstall Installed to test it and didn't seen to work on my s5 now it won't uninstall. Feels like some of thoses browser hijacker.

Jeremy Guzman

Never works Since updating to L acdisplay works once in a blue moon - when I had a notification from Instagram and from Hangouts. Other than that, nothing. Was hoping latest update would fix this problem

Flaviu Daniel

:( Doesn't work on Galaxy S5 Android 5.0

Morish Shah

It was OK... Except I need security other than that it is amazing!

Clive Español

Best lockscreen! I love how the app is functional, convenient and above all, minimalistic. :)

Hans Daniel De Castro

I like it so much but... Notification icons still appear on the lockscreen though I already dismissed/seen them, or the other way around wherein notifications still appear on my notification bar. Otherwise, it's such a great looking minimalistic app! Please just fix some bugs/problems.

salvatore palaggi

Will not uninstall I can not uninstall this app it will not deactivate from settings or play store on a galaxy S6 tried every way I know how to uninstall this and it will not go away. How do I get rid of this app???

Tom Clark

was perfect - Lollipop update? WHY THE CONSTANT UPDATES ??until yesterday afternoon this was THE best lock screen app available I think; however now that I have been lucky enough to get the lollipop update - I can no longer seem to get the music function in lock screen mode ??? I notice that the developer seems to have been a little quiet on this app for a while so not sure if interest is lost?? anyone know of a short cut or when a patch might be made??

Jeffrey Brown

Won't let me uninstall Very disappointed that I can't uninstall the device. Please provide me with the tools to uninstall

Brandon J

Best lock screen for sure Just wish the time and info were centered on my HTC one m8 and also had a passcode / pattern lock feature lol such a strange thing to be left out of all things but I guess you can't have it all

Camilo Morrice

Looks great Works really well. One thing is with active mode make an option too have the proximity sensor working so it doesn't go off in your pocket

Nazi Grammar

Don't work properly. Can't uninstall from settings/apps and from menu

gaurav tandel

Can you please add some security features like pattern and password

Vaibhav Yagnik

Must have app for superamoled screen phones Get moto x style notification on any phone with amoled screen. Works great and is very handy at checking notification without unlocking the phone

Tristan Racz

Great, but slight issue The unlock animation on my Galaxy S6 running lollipop isn't appearing when the option is selected, though it worked perfectly with my previous Galaxy S4 running Kitkat. Asides from the slight bug it works beautifully.

Treyah Rae

Samsung Note 3 / Android Lollipop 5.0 Hands down best notification app I've ever had. I really enjoy this as my lockscreen. I have not had any problems with it and it works great on my Note 3. Nice job dev! ?

Kate Ta

sooo much fun yes yes yes yes this is exactly what I wanted kudos all around for developers

Mauricio Osorio

Add Pass Code Feature Please I love this app, it's the best lock screen replacement there is, but you lose all security, I would love if you would a pass code, pin, etc.

Pranav Manjapra

Can you please add a landscape mode just for tablets?

Alex Bukh

The best! Must-have

Michael Fontecchio

Learn Android app ops To everyone who can't uninstall and claim this is a virus; the reason you cannot uninstall is that you have given it device admin access. To uninstall you have to deactivate that feature in your phones security settings. Not a virus, not a bad app, just pay attention when you first set it up and instructions.


Hated it Once u install it u can't uninstall it I hate it so much I had to get a new phone because it spreaded viruses on my phone and u could not uninstall the app so the virus got worse and broke my phone and I know it was this app because my phone told me afterward

Anthony Liantonio

Active mode and pulsating notifications Active mode doesn't always work. Hardly ever, really. Removing the phone from my pocket doesn't trigger the proximity sensor. And I would like the option to have the notifications pulsate rather than appear once for a few seconds.

Andrew Brooks

Love it; needs finger print sensor lock screen support though!

Raven Scotland

It works now I decided to give this app another try. It is way better now. Also there is a way to uninstall. You have to go to security in your settings. Then you go to device administrators. Then you can take out ac display. Then you can uninstall.

Steven Perez

It works and looks great! Just wish it didn't drain my battery so dang fast! I know the S6 battery isn't all that, but I notice a big drain while using this app. Fix the problem and five stars!

Karan Das

Decent but flawed. Does what it says splendidly and works as intended,certainly better than moto's annoying moto display but sometimes Acdisplay seems to hang up and keep the screen on for a long period of time which results in my phone getting really hot.

Gaurav Mitra

Loving it Loving it again

Corey Thomas

OnePlus One running 5.0.2 I live by this app. The design functionality and everything else are great. But lately. I'd say for about a month sometimes it just totally freezes up. I try to swipe or look at notifications and it just doesn't do anything. Even if I press the home button on my nav bar to just bypass it its still frozen. Freezes up my phone too. Just really super frustrating because I love this app so much. I only use this or just the stock lockscreen. Anything else on the play store is just bleh :\ please please help.

Abbey Clark

If I could give no stars I would! Its always late I turn my phone off then ill turn it back on ... sometimes its there and sometimes i have to. Count to three! And I tried uninstalling and it wouldn't uninstall!!! Fix it I heard it. Broke someone's phone!(In the reviews) FIX IT TO WHERE I CAN UNINSTALL!!!!!!

Nicholas Gayzik

Some problems but can be fixed I love the concept of this app, but can't use it because of two problems. First when you set for the phone to wake on a notification the timer has to run out and the screen has to wake up for a second time by itself or manually for the notification to trigger on the screen which leads into my second problem the screen wakes up by itself until the notification is dismissed using a ridiculous amount of battery I would love to start using the app again but can't at this time

Sammy Akharaz

Highly customizable, awesome notification design With this and a custom widget app(I use and recommend Zooper), you can customize your minimalist lock screen to an impressive level. Examples: gestures options, unlock animation colors, and full screen option. Also, the menus are designed wonderfully, aesthetically and functionally. -Best minimal lock screen app in play store. The only customization option I personally wish to see expanded is widget size.

Tahmid Rahman

A few more improvements The animation for changing from notification to clock is clunky as well as the auto screen feature is too insensitive. An option for the screen to be present when charging would be appreciated.

Kieran Caruthers

Amazing lock screen This app is one of the best and is what I've been looking for but one problem is that whenever I have a notification my LED light doesn't work so I don't know if I have a notification or not until I wake up my device. if this was made to work then it would fully deserve 5 stars

Jonny. G

Pleas fix the lockscreen stuff Whe you lock the screen and try to unlock in 1 second the lockscreen doesnt work.. You have yo wait a little.. And in lollipop on my galaxy s5 I cant use just the notification service with my stock lockscreen, it doesnt work, I have to set AcDisplay like the lockscreen.

Trevor Birdwell

Doesn't stay locked If I press my home button it passes the lock screen and goes to home screen . pls add like a password or pin to it and I'll give it 5 stars

Siddharth Marawar

Notification should clear on Notification Action Hi.. First of all you guys are doing an amazing job with the app. However, I'd like to make a suggestion. Once the user interacts/touches an action button associated with a notification, the notification should clear. This would help me avoid the redundant task of clearing the notification after performing the associated action. Hope you guys will consider this feature in a future update. Thanks.

Oscar Herrera

Home button This is a great app, but the only issue I have with it is the home button. Whenever the lock screen is displayed and the home button is pressed on, accidentally or intentionally, it unlocks the phone. Can you please fix this?

Law Liet Riu

Just... I would like to compliment you on this awsome app,since I found it I have been loveing it. If I can make a small suggestion,would like to see in the future a "turn WiFi off during sleep" option,that would really make it shine,in my opinion. Anyway,good app,keep it up!!!

Ryansyah Rizky

Awesome Apps with Xposed Features!! But... Dear mr, developer please make this app full work for security too.. Ie: built-in pin lockscreen. Sadly when I'm going to open notification of course it will redirect to my lockscreen to insert my pin. At the same time it'll be good to get nice notification alongside good security too. Tested on Xperia Z2, Thanks in advance

Raphael Viana

Lock screen isn't an option anymore LGG3 on lollipop. There was an update that removed the lock screen option from the settings menu so now it only says active mode. Hope this is fixed as its my favourite lock screen

Reshad Abd

Adding a very simple security feature to this app is necessary. Bypassing ZUI locker is easy for thieves, but not for family members or friends. Thanks for reply dear developer.

Icko Lacandazo

Bug After I update my S5 to lollipop, acdisplay isnt working. Everytime I lock my device it uses the default lock app of my phone. How can I fix this? Overall it's a great app anyways. Still a 5star for me.

Michael Dixon

Lock Screen Please add a pin or pattern for this please I love this app so much and that's all it needs thank u

Mwaura Karugu

Give me a damn 6th start to review. The dev deserves it!!!! I kiss my phone, she's so pretty

Zarif Hussain

Note 4 Please make it fast ...most of the time it is really slow on unlocking animation

Dylan Crawford

The wallpaper. What happened to the days where we could put a different wallpaper up? I remember being able to change it just last year.

Sean Wood

After the last update, the app seems to have caused my phone to start vibrating each time I get a notification (of any kind) even when I'm on silent. This is very irritating!

rajveer sodhi

Probably the world's best lock screen app!! Honestly, I find this lock screen way better that the android lollipop lock screen too! This is exactly what I wanted: minimalistic, useful and it doesn't even use a lot of battery! The only problem with this is (or maybe I hasn't figured it out yet) that there is no password lock. Besides that, I recommend this to everyone who don't like their luck screen's looks.

Justin DiOrio

MotoX Love this and have used consistently since I got KitKat. You were so fast to get Music on Lock screen. Can't wait for daydream feature! Neway u earned ur fifth star. Works great! Thanks✌

Jef Sellekaerts

Hi its great but make it so you can select a custom image as wallpaper for the lockscreen not your homescreen wallpaper if you add this i will give 5 stars !

Tony Atzen

Need some work but getting there First of more swipe actions. Camera and phone app is good, but how about SMS. You should be able to choose any app. Another thing. Make an option to disable that annoying always active notification that tells me that I have the app active. It's so annoying and takes up space.

Chris Heard

Buggy. Notifications for apps that are open will automatically consider themselves 'read.' Alarms, texts, anything.

Jim Francis

unlockable please fix how i can bypass the lockscreen by tapping the home button. also, it's slow on responding to turning my screen on.

Ken Win Kok

Needs a notification for Google stopwatch Something to control google stopwatch and timer when in lock screen would make this a five star lockscreen app

Caio Pretti

Glitches take away 2 stars... I love this app since my G3 doesn't light up on notifications as I was used to before coming to Android, and with that it works fine. Sometimes it won't light up on notifications, and when the phone is turned on it goes to the typical lock screen, which bugs me. There is also an option for widgets, but I can't say whether it's good or not because every time I try to add one the app crashes. This really annoys me and if it can be fixed this app will deserve all 5 stars.

Snehasis Chakraborty

It's want admin permission... Time out policy... If you tell me how to do it? Then it will be great..


Problem with android L Ever since i updated my htc m7 to android 5.0 i keep having some issues like : when my alarm starts it doesen't bypass the ac display lockscreen so i have to first unlock my phone and then stop or snooze it and i can't pause or skip a song from the lockscreen and that's a bummer because i loved it on kitkat. I really hope for an update! This update was what i was looking for ! Great job!

Brendan Anderson

Good It sometimes doesn't show the acdisplay. And it should have disable home button

Rebecca Lawson

I love that the "knock knock" feature for my phone works on this lock screen! Wish you could change the settings so the wallpaper wasn't so dark... More unlock animations?

Jayme Lyn Murphy

Please remove one thing... The constant "AcDisplay services active mode, lockscreen" bar from the notifications panel when the screen is awake. Also the weather icon - I already have one! Can't disable yours. Please fix!

santosh kumar

Needs improvements When I get a call, screen doesn't show caller details. I've to manually press power button to actually see who's calling. This is a major issue needs to be attended immediately.

Conor Hudson

Like it, not 5 star material Just please add a lock functionality and make it an actual replacement lockscreen like other lock screen apps please ?

Ricky Rosete

Perfect. During the previous update, which was buggier than a rain forest, I HAD to use a different lockscreen. Let me tell you something: worst days my phone ever had to go through. I'm glad you fixed the bugs, this app is legit the best lockscreen app ever. Don't release any buggy updates in the future please!!! Lol

Yancarlos Baez

Add security please! Will you guys be adding lock screen security in this app, this would would make it 100 percent if it has that for sure. I'm not too comfortable having my phone without a lock pattern or pin because then anyone can just go through my phone and that really evades privacy.


one feature missing Turning the screen on and off in recurrence and being able to choose the intervals. This would be a feature to make screen flash apps for phones with no LEDs redundant. otherwise, the functionality and features are very good.

Jesse M

I Really like it But the only thing Is that it doesn't have a security password or anything ..hopefully it's something that can be added in the near future . . Oh one more thing if you could add more shortcuts instead of just having camera and phone like flashlight and so on that would be great .....

Thomas Arapura

Very useful but buggy It works really well but it does have bugs. When you a view a notification from the lockscreen sometimes it completely bypasses the lockscreen which is a serious security flaw for the phone. If that was fixed this would be a great app!!

Mark Saladino

Little bug When i was unlocking my phone, sometimes it has delay and after 1 to 2 seconds the lockscreen will appear. And when someones calling, i need to unlock 1st before i can see whos calling. Its nice and clean but need passcode. I'll give 5 star for this lockscreen because in my opinion this is the best. But it lacks feature. If you can release a paid version app, I'm willing to buy this lockscreen.

Jason Sabal

Locksreen bug This lockscreen works nicely and looks great but the only downside is when im on the locksrcreen and press the home button my phone will unlock and go to the homescreen so it defeats the purpose of being able to swipe to unlock:/ Please look into this problem otherwise the locksreen is nice:)

Nitish Vanaik

Performs as advertised! Thank you Devs! Only thing I would get rid of is that notification telling the user that the app is active. - GS6

Rich Harris

Needs better security! I think this is a well polished simplistic lock screen and I love it but please update your app so we can have a password and swipe locking. Then I'll give it 5 stars

Andrew Ruth

While using this on the Galaxy S6, the LED flashing alerts do not work. Please fix or offer a solution!

Enrique Zapata

App does not work on LG LEON LTE which defeats the purpose of this app. uninstalling if i can somehow i can not access DEACTIVATE thing.

Mike Tarantino

Issues Sliding down to remove notifications does not always work on my note5. A clear all button would be nice.

Madison MARS

Blacklist ? :( Love the app, but something is really annoying: how to change the app in the blacklist ? My sms app is in "hide, silent" mode in the blacklist so I don't receive notification... Thank you ?

Andrew Osei

Great app but... Don't get me wrong I'm not some internet troll who aimlessly criticize apps but this input I think most will agree. I would like the app to remain just a notification app. I mean I don't want the option of unlocking my phone to the launcher whenever a notification pops up. I would love the function of allowing me to swipe or move on to my default lock screen before unlocking. I'm asking this because my pockets accidentally unlocks my phone. I'm sure this wouldn't be much of a hassle for you. Thank you

Nicolás Esquivel

On LGG4 w/Lollipop 5.1. It has a lot of potential. Like others, I've found several bugs that compromise security. I am sure developer will update soon. One recommendation: it would be great if the lockscreen option would actually lock phone after a set lock timer, then a numerical code, pattern code or tap code (LG G4) could be used to unlock after swiping the AcDisplay screen. For periods of time under the lock timer, the screen would simply timeout and as usual and user would be able to wake the phone by swiping on the AcDisplay screen.

Christian St. Louis

Good but a little buggy Awesome app, would be better with "Okay Google" hotword detection EDIT: For those who dislike the constant notification, long press on it, click the little i, and set notifications to none :)

Dakoda Koziol

Good. It's clean and minimalistic, beautiful. But unfortunately, it is missing a lot of function. The media controls rarely work, wave to turn on is broken, and there is no option to enable quick settings on the lockscreen. Please fix! It's the best lockscreen out there!

Jaden Garcia

Please improve the "wake up" feature You should consider adding an ambient wake up mode for notifications at night. Instead of waking up to full brigtness, the screen should slowly wake up with a black background to save battery. This would be useful for dock users at night. Amazing app by the way, its a peice of art.

Daniel Brown

Looks great I just can't seem to get widgets working, every time I open the widget settings it crashes. Everything else is sweet though. Edit: looks like this us a known issue for the lg g3. Too bad!

Stanley Kaytovich

I believe the app has great potential, however on Android M with finger sensor, the Google lockscreen often requires a pin following the finger sensor read with AcDisplay with Active Mode enabled. It would be great to use the finger sensor with the AcDisplay and bypass the default lockscreen altogether from Active Mode. Visually, AcDisplay is a beauty and has some really nice functionality, however performance is unstable and the integration with the OS is not great.

John Lacombe

Needs to be fixed It looks amazing and this is why this bugs me so much, when you power on the phone, you see the lock screen and just a tap of the home button unlocks the app, it is very annoying and it should be a fixed lockscreen

michael gomez

Great! For some reason the feature to wake up my device by waving over it doesn't work most of the time ? but other than that its cool. ?

Grant Schlenger

It's beautiful buuuuuut I'm on 5.1 with an LG G4, sometimes the lockscreen seems delayed and I see my home screen for a second before the lockscreen actually engages. Also, it automatically snoozes all alarms making it unusable. Uninstalling for now, but I love what does work. Can't wait to come back

Manjot Singh

It's amazing It's so productive, minimal and just save battery. I just want you guys to add one thing... Fingerprint compatibility with the S6. So it has security

Jake Sherwood

Really good Very clean simple, & elegant lockscreen. I hope this continues to progress! One request, making the display area movable would be great, i use a LG smart circle case, & this over rides its function.. Everything fits fine, if i could just move it to the right spot, thank you & keep up the good work

Caren Miller

You better like it, because it won't work without admin manager rights and you cannot cannot uninstall it. You are stuck with it forever, you cannot even move it to your SD card. BAD BAD BAD situation. Wish I never installed it.

Rafael Javier

Used to work flawlessly prior to android 5.0 The app continues to crash all the time after android 5.0.1 upgrade. . Please fix the issue and the app will get 5 stars once again. I've sent many crash reports - the app flickers when a message comes in and then crashes. Still experiencing crashes and note 4 freezes.... 8/15/2015 - unfortunately I am no longer using this app due to the constant freezing and locking up of my note 4 when receiving txt msg or calls.

Pablo Felix

Love it Works as it should, breaths new life into my long in the tooth S3. Great job guys!

Francesco Varrato

It doesn't work, simply I installed it, tried it out and... Nothing! The lockscreen is exactly as before. Then I restarted the phone and... Nothing! Again as before. And all the times I had new notifications. Seems like no combination of options in-app can make it appear as my substitute lockscreen. Thus, I'm unistalling it. Buah

Graeme Wadhams

The number one reason never to go back to ios This should be number one in the play store. It's amazing. Beautifully designed and works every time. Just pick your phone up and it'll update you with latest notifications without having to touch a thing. Should come as standard on all android phones and now my number one reason to not make an iPhone my next phone. Brilliant.

Rohan Arjoon

Amazing. 5 star app for what it is. Perfect for people who want to use their own widgets such as Zooper for clocks, weather etc. Only thing I would ask devs to add is a security feature. I don't feel comfortable having no security whatsoever, but great app and does exactly what it says on the tin.

Evan Sanjaya

Can't set it as lockscreen I try to set is as locksreen in my Galaxy Tab S, but it keeps saying "need to avoid overlaying alarm and phone apps" and when I click it, it directs me to Wifi setting... pls help me! I want to use this lockscreen so bad :")

Josh King

Use of the word lockscreen is deceiving. It seemed like the way this would work is I would be able to use this app and still be able to use a pattern. When I set this to "replace" the lockscreen the stock one still shows up after unlocking this app. That kind of defeats the purpose. I don't really want to use this if I have to give up security on my phone. At least it looks nice.

Sandesh Bartlett

The best out there (not anymore) Battery friendly and simple. This is ideal if you're looking to keep your phone looking light and modern. Kudos to the devs. Edit : Hope the devs will address this problem. As of late the Lock screen doesn't turn off if I get a notification. I've set it to turn off five seconds after I get a notification but it doesn't. It will show the display and time without switching off which can be quite annoying when youre in bed and get a notification that makes the display light up all night.

Winefredo Yumol

Amazing! It works really well, just a little more work on the lockscreen, probably add a password or something. And also can you please take away that notification thing that stays at the notification bar, I'd like it more if it's not there.

Jonathan Leung

So great It's just like active display I used to have on carbon Rom and it displays notifications easily for you and looks great! The lockscreen feature is just a tiny bit buggy cause sometimes notifications disappear at least for Facebook messenger

Steffan Cope

Nice, but when using the app as a lockscreen the music player only appears the first time you turn the screen on. it would be nice to have an option to always show music controls while music is playing. great app in all other respects.


IT'S AWESOME! I CAN'T HELP DONATING! really cool. Stable and clear. Extremely outstanding! This is the first app that can entirely replace the system lockscreen using xposed module. I loooooooove it.

Henry Otero

Need security I would give it 5 stars, but it does have security lock, and I use the default one that doesn't mesh well with the great looks of this app. All in the rest, great work, love it!

Marc LaBelle

Perfect! This app is perfect for what I'm looking for in a lock screen. Easily accessible notifications, simplistic look and zero issues. Excellent app!

sudhir kumar

Facing problem in Letv 1s It work fine for few weeks, but since last 2-3 days notification are not showing on lock screen, pls help me to resolve the problem as the app and concept is very good,really help a lot ,waiting for reply

Kirtish Sukhija

Glance plus app (Why its better?) I don't want to use glance plus instead of ac display because acd, it's really beautiful! But I have to use glance plus because of two features: Customisable Analog Clock & Calender (both at different times can be added to lock screen). I don't want to use glance plus. Ac display team please, do something. Thanks. Waiting for your update, acd!

jihed hafnaoui

Lacks security but still pretty awesome Everything about it is great just throw in a couple of security features maybe fingerprint support and it will be perfect

kamal bansal

Battery Drains so fast Bcoz this app uses sensors to detect whether the phone in pocket or not. It drains a lot of battery. Also no security.

A Google User

Could be a very good app However it seems to be abandoned. There should be an option to change lock screen text color/opacity (or dim the brightness of it). It's too bright on amoled display. Also option to change font and size for clock would be nice.

Loving this Runs nicely on my s6 edge and makes notifications easily accessible when I'm on my desk and also has a great design. Just on thing I'd love to see is an always on option for when your phone is charging. Keep up the great work

Whenever an call comes on my device the phone doesnt wake up But when i disable acdisplay.. Guess what?? The phone wakes up on an incoming call

Unlock animation I have never liked that unlock style. At least can you add fully transparent color selection? Beside that this is a good minimalistic lockscreen.

(LG G3 D855) Everything is perfect except one major issue. After I receive a phone call, the AcDisplay lockscreen unlocks the phone and not putting the phone back to lock state itself. When it's in my pocket, after a missed call, apps are opened by accidental touches because of the phone is unlocked. This is so annoying and please fix this big issue asap.

Do Not Download! You've Been Warned! This application has attached it's self to my phone and I'm unable to remove it! I've reached out to the developers for help on how to remove the admin rights and no one has responded. I have turned off all of it's functions but when you attempt to remove the admin for the application it freezes the crashes the setting! I am reaching out to Google for assistance since I belive this app is pure spam! Galaxy Note 5.

Could had been 5 stars I would had rated this 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that I can't put in a custom widget (which was probably the main reason why I was excited for this app). I was able to have it actually work once, but it was also the last. It could had been better if it had its own passcode options. It's such a disappointment that I don't see any solutions yet.

Works as expexted, but doesnt solve Android issue This is a great small and free app, but it doesn't solve underlying problem with Android Lollipop 5.0.2 screen lock. I've searched for some app to show small and compact notifications after upgrade from Kitkat 4.4.4 to Lollipop 5.0.2 on my Sony Xperia Z3 compact. Despite this beauty works smooth, it only makes things worse: to unlock a mobile I need to make FOUR actions: press power button, swipe AcDisplay screen, swipe my unlock pattern. This is just ridiculous!

Ivy Torres

Almost! Great minimalist lock screen. The wave proximity sensor unlocking function should be improved though. As well as adding more options for swiping from upper/lower right/left, not just dialer and camera. And it would also be perfect if you can edit the size of the clock. Hihi. Still an awesome app though! :)

Alex Pagani

Awesome lockscreen I usually dont like "defacing" the stock look of my G4, but i made and exception for this app. I hope the devs read this, because i have a few requests. The app sometimes puts my phone to sleep for no reason. The wave to wake option is sweet, but only works 1/10 times and my hand needs to be really close to the sensor. Other than that, the notifications on the lockscreen are baller, and the active mode is pretty cool as well and works most of the time.

Jubei Roku

No updates! This app definitely has potential! but there's no consistent development. I really enjoy this app for the most part, but you can tell there are bugs that need to be addressed. Why not update your app and turn it into a real money maker! I would pay if this app was keep updated.. Just so you know, thanks

Shantanu Rana

Nice, but Please fix wave to wake feature. Does not wake up the screen in one go... And one more problem, whenever I'm using my phone, receives a notification and clears it at that instant it does not sync up with that. It shows the cleared notification after the lock is set! So plsss u have some work to do...

Nick Christlieb

Love it, but.. I used this lock screen for a very long time and loved it, but I had to stop using it because there was a bug with it that would disable/shut off my alarms immediately as they were starting. This, in turn made me late for work on several occasions. If that one bug would or could have been fixed... 5 stars, best lock screen ever.


Amazing before the update After the update I can no longer interact with the notifications like you are able to before. I could only click on them to open them and that was it. I couldn't even dismiss them. Maybe it'll get better but now it's getting to the point where even though it has device administration its not locking the screen. Hopefully it will be it better one day soon then I'll reinstall

Cazia Jover

Love the app, however, there are a few bugs. I noticed that whenever I press my physical home button, it automatically unlocks my phone. Not sure if that was done on purpose though. Also, when I press my recent apps button, it takes me to my recent apps, which I don't think should even happen. It would be nice to add an option to set a custom wallpaper for the lockscreen as well as enable pattern and passcode lock. Other than that, I really like how simple and straightforward this lockscreen is.

Kyle Rulli

Battery drain I like it. Nice to be able to see at a glance notifications and I love the simplicity. I just wish there was the ability to leave the screen on longer (until I dismiss, 1 hour, etc), maybe contact photos for notifications, proximity sensors, and shortcuts on lock screen. Also, it seems to not play well with Textra. When I get a text message, it will flash the screen on, then turn off and on until I open the notification. I have tried changing the priorities and all other options.

Anthony Intelisano

Loving it so far This is such an awesome app. It appears we can only place one widget on it though. Unless I'm missing something. Right now I have the flash light widget. It's nice to have fast access to it. The only thing that could make this better is being able to set the wallpaper to something other then our home screen wallpaper. My lock screen was a modeling photo of my wife. My home screen is Cortana from Halo. My wife's photo is to busy to be a home screen but it would be great if I could use it as a lockscreen

Manendu Dutta

It's the best I was looking for a lockscreen without any flashy wallpaper or a lot of shortcuts, I mean when I will need an app I'll just open it, there is no need for it to be on my lockscreen. The thing I liked the most about this lockscreen is the way the notifications dissolve when pushed down. The solid color lock and the backgrounds are awesome,I keep them in random order. This lockscreen is The best for the users who love to be simple.

Ranny Kalsi

I love this app, such a unique lockscreen from everything else. Rating 4 stars as I have 1 suggestion that I think needs addressing - when I receive a call and don't pickup, the phone remains on the home screen and doesn't lock itself. It's quite annoying when it is in my pocket. Other than that, its a great app. Well done developers.

Jatin Krish Vig

Amazing, Absolutely Awesome, Love it This app is absolutely, mind-blowingly and bogglingly, beautifully, totally and amazingly completely AWESOME!!! I have been looking for a lockscreen for so long that I almost gave up, but then along came AcDisplay. There is absolutely not one thing I would change in this app, that's how beautiful it is. No mistakes, nothing, none, nada, zilch. *App you're amazing, just the way you are* Hats off to the devs, great work, keep it up!!!??????

Brendan Howell

Perfect Minimalist Lockscreen I've been using AcDisplay for a long time now. It handles notifications simply and smoothly, right out of the box, but now has plenty of customization options available (esp. custom widgets) The only problem I've encountered so far is the occasional non-responsive media controls, but I'm sure they'll be fixed soon. Thanks, dev!

abhinav gautam

Brilliant app!! Edit: 'Had to uninstall. Started taking too much resources/battery in the background I don't know, if it's a bug or anything. Kindly fix it.' Really cool. It's a no nonsense app. Please do rem though this app keeps on running in the background and though it's not really a super heavy app but it's not feather weight either. It is perfectly fine by me, coz I find it to be totally worth it. It gives you a buttery smooth experience and the lock screen looks wise is damn cool. Love it. Thank you so much!!

Beyond Im

Lovely app but... This app has such great potential I hope the developer isn't dumping it. Apps like "Glance Plus" is taking over but aesthetically can't compare to this, functionality wise the former has unique options like direct unlock with finger print, auto disable when call alert, the gesture wake seems more sensitive too. Would be great to see features like these on ACdisplay cos this app is well written. I think a lot of people don't mind paying for good written apps.

Wesley McLaughlin

Great app just needs a few additions This is a fantastic app for someone coming from the Motorola ecosystem that misses the active display as badly as I did. There needs to be a way to swipe the media player out of the way to access the normal acdisplay screen. There also needs to be an addition that brings up acdisplay when the phone is picked up after sitting for a set period of time. I have issues with the proximity wake but pulling it out of my pocket always seems to work. Otherwise this is a fantastic app!

Alexis Zarco

THIS IS THE PERFECT ONE! Now it only misses one thing: a security. After all, it's a lock screen, so it is pretty ironic for a lock screen to not have a security. Also hopefully more customizable, like being able to change your wallpaper. Also the notification bar shouldn't be able to go down while in the lockscreen. Those are my suggestions.

Ted Aaron Dogillo

I totally love it but... Everything is so subtle and clean. Just one thing, make it more stable for music player. In an instance, I was playing music and in the first time I looked at the screen I saw the toggles of musixmatch player and a blur of the artwork as the background. That was great but I turned the screen of and I turn it back on and everything was back to the clock and the phone's wallpaper. Please fix this because this is one of the best apps. This fix could mean so much. Thank you and I hope you will respond.

S.M Taha

Perfect I always wanted something like this but I wasn't able to find however I think now I have with you AC Display. Now I am so much used to it that it is hard to get away not to use it. This is a feature that every phone should have. But no problem all of us have Android devices and therefore No Problem.

Dani Tofan

Almost perfect 1) The following feature is called active display, it was integrated first into a Nokia 909, later introduced into a few Lumia Whidows Phone devices. 2) On windows phones (that the following feature was available on), it was labelled as "Glance screen" and it was separate from the lock screen 3) Glance is essentially an extra layer over the current screen lock layer. 4) I tried most of the alternative apps, yet I come back to this one all the time 5) GET IT NOW!

Chane Moss

Great so far. The lock screen is so beautifully simplistic and so far it's been working great. Only one issue: I have the app set to stay enabled even when there are no notifications, but every so often I'll wake the phone screen and it just gets right into my phone. The lock screen isn't there. So just that one issue. Something I'd really like to see is the ability to set some sort of security to the lock screen, whether it's a password, pin number, or pattern.

Angel Corona

Fantastic App This app is fantastic regardless! I would love some features like lock screen options, etc. But either way you did a great job. I was using Nils previously and stopped and really didn't find another one I liked until now but I have to try it out and see how it worked in my everyday use.

Jonathan Sutherland

Home Button The app is nice. I enjoy the sleek look it brings to the table; a nice change of scenery from the stock lock screen. however, it's a little irksome to me that the screen unlocks just by pressing my home button while the display is on. I also seldom experience an issue with the screen display coming back on just after dimming once a notification has been shown and no action taken. any way to fix these issues? Then you're golden!

Mario Andrew Benc

Love question? Crashes from time to time..Battery drain and ram incresed Love the app, I can see all my notifications very quickly in a bubble and close them and it leaves it as unread and keeps me a reminder to open them again later , love the background blur and photo of the person.but the battery drain and RAM usage incresed and you remove the notification of the slide bar? If yes would be happy to rate it a 5 star

Kool-Aid, Adrian

Great features but please work on supporting 'smart lock' of samsung When i get home, the smart lock keeps my screen unlocked meaning i dont need to type in a password to unlock it, but with Ac Display set as lock screen, i always have to unlock the phone with a password every time i turn it on.. please fix (: -edit: nevermind i dont have to retype my password but i have to swipe a second time, however if i dont have a password set, then i dont need to swipe twice, i need a password on it tho

Carin Rundle

Waving your hand across the screen does not open the app. I have tried it several times on my Galaxy Note 5 with no luck. That's one option that I had loved about the Moto X was their active screen. You could just wave your hand across the screen and the time, date and any messages would appear on the screen. I thought that that is was this app was suppose to do, but I can't seem to get it to work.

Milad Alavi

The best lockscreen on Android Usually when I give administration permissions and/or accessibility access to app, usually starts to slow my device down and affect my music quality... But not this app in fact it has the smoothest operation on my Galaxy s5 I've even tried to push it's limit. Great job.

Vishruth Raja

Lockscreen is beautiful! You may call it a beta but if set up right this can be an amazing lockscreen! I have this setup in 3 of my devices! All look stunning! A hat tip to you my friend! SUGGESTIONS: Allow the widget to be centered on the lock screen, currently it's kind of 70% vertical. Allow making the background blurred or frosted rather than darker. I will happily donate to you!

Dinesh Ramalingam

A really cool app This is by far the best lock screen app with notification that i have ever used.. keep up the good work.. but just one more thing.. if you can actually have a function to lock like password and pattern locks, that would be amazing... then i will give you another star..

lee cc

love it, but... it's a gorgeous app, it makes my phone look minimal and pretty, but there's one little thing that could make it better !!! and it's adding a custom image to the lock screen, having the same as the homescreen removes the personal user touch. I hope it gets changed in the near future ?


Amazing but little buggy The best one have used. Simple. But not so smooth now. If there is a carrier notification on home screen and if its not removed and screen is turned off and then on again. the app responds abnormally making the ac display lock screen blink continuously. Also if we are able to choose custom background instead of black or homescreen,it would be great! Down rated..fix the bug. would love to rate 5 stars then.

Aravind Kennady

Overall a good app but needs improvement Bugs i guess on 4.2 jelly bean. Wave to wake doesn't always work when proximity sensor is covered with hand. But yes it always works when phone is taken out of pocket. That's the only bug that i noticed till now. Otherwise a great app. So, Please release an update with these bugs fixed and get that remaining one ★

Delaney Ball

Great lock screen. I love that it will wake my phone as I take it out of my pocket. My only complaint is the notification that is always in my pull down menu. I know it's there for a reason, but I've used other lock screen apps that haven't needed that. If the developers would make that one change, this would be a perfect lock screen.


Awesome app This app is wonderful. It's simple, attractive and very functional. I love the way the glimpse of your notification appears when you touch on the icon and vanishes when you take your finger away. Then darkens to remind you it had already been checked but doesn't disappear entirely until you actually check it.
