App: Always on Display on Samsung Z3 gets an Update

The always on display feature that is popular on the Samsung S7 and LG G5 came to the Samsung Z3 via the Always on Display app. This app is quite suited to the Z3 as the AMOLED screen does not use that much power to keep on compared to similar sized LCD screens.
At the time the developer Anup Kushwaha promised that more features would be Implemented over time and I’m glad to say that he has kept to his word. The latest update is to version 0.0.8 and there are a few good features that have now been Introduced.
New Features

  • Added battery information
  • Added clock position change logic
  • Fixed clock graphics issue
  • Fixed overlap issue with lockscreen
  • Fixed clock time update issue
  • Fixed other minor issues

Previous features
