I came across this xposed module today - which says this - 

"Disable restricting Android API to get recent tasks in Lollipop and newer. This restriction causes that some apps (e.g. Greenify) don't work as they should, since Android now returns nothing or useless info when they want to get recent tasks. This module should fix it as it was before"

Is this still correct? Do I need to install this module to get greenify working on my 5.1.1 Nexus 5?

If I'm not wrong Greenify is fixed to work around this issue, so it doesn't need the old way of getting recent tasks. But for other apps, yes just installing this module will fix them

+Dango  is using insane amount of memory. 190 MB...! This and flotify, together have brought down my Nexus 5 on its knees.

Please look into this issue.

I'm using Nexus 5, running stock 5.1.1 rooted, xposed.

Hi. TextAide is clashing with Gravity Box's "double tap statusbar to sleep" mod. I've been having this issue since last few days and hence sat down to find out the cause today. I disabled all my xposed modules and turned them on one by one. Turns out, once Text Aide is enabled, it breaks that function of Gravity Box. Instead of the phone going to sleep, this happens - 

* I get a toast from system UI, saying "Select now"
* Statusbar gets locked. I can't pull it down anymore to see notification shade.

Only way to pull it down now is restarting system UI.

Could you please please please fix this?

Can we have "customize floatify notification" as an option for popup interaction actions? For example, when a "5 apps updated" notification pops up, I want to double tap it and that should directly take me to floatify's Play Store notification customization screen.

I will take this into consideration for future releases.

I'm having some weird issue - 

I have the GravityBox's "Double tap to sleep" enabled in statusbar tweaks and it used to work. But not sure since when, double tapping the statusbar now throws a toast from system ui saying "select now". Nothing else pops up and the statusbar freezes. That is, I can no longer pull down the notification shade. Only way to do that is making system UI restart. But if I double tap the statusbar again, it again does the same thing.

Anyone has faced this before and knows what's the solution?

I have a Nexus 5 running stock Android 5.1.1, unofficial xposed v71 and franco r75 kernel.

+Karsten Harter Yeah, I've tried enabling and disabling the "double tap to sleep" option in GV. In both cases, I face the same problem. There's been no update of GV recently and I didn't flash any new xposed zip either. So, not sure what's causing this.

A few feedback for the app - 

1. When I change any subreddit's color, all the cards' color also change in that sub; which looks very gaudy tbh. IMO, change subreddit color should change only the header / navbar of the tab page, not individual card color. Individual cards should stay dark, light or amoled black, depending on main setting.

2. There's no option of auto filling the sub name while submitting a post. You can add a + fab on the main tabbed page. Tapping the + will open a submit page for whichever sub's tab the user was on.

3. The image upload for post submission looks broken. After I select an image, I get the "Uploading to imgur" toast, but then nothing. Did it upload? Am I good to go?? You can also add a "connect to imgur" login in setting, so that all image uploads go to the user's imgur account.

4. The scrolling is feeling a bit too resistive. It doesn't scroll as smoothly as I would like it to. And I think I saw the cards scrolling in the opposite direction a few times.

Looking forward to your coming updates. I see a lot of promise in this app. Keep up the good work.

1) Settings > Card Colors> Color Matching Mode> Off/card/subreddit name
2)  Good idea!
3) Because of issues regarding targeting the correct view, it loads into the snackbar while uploading and copies to your clipboard. The snackbar tells you when its done loading
4) hat is a lollipop bug but Google is working to fix the design library because of that.

And thanks!

Observation regarding the "sending anonymous usage" setting. Typically, apps that collect usage stats, they show the option as -
Send anonymous usage statistics? Yes / No.
Typically, Yes is selected by default.

But in your app, it is - 
Disable sending anonymous usage statistics? Yes / No.
And you've kept this enabled by default.

I would guess this is done deliberately, hoping that users habituated with disabling "anonymous statistic" will just flip the switch here, out of habit and that will actually enable sending stats. Very sneaky.

My suggestion - don't trick/fool your users.

IMO, it is much preferable to have it written the simpler way. "Send anonymous usage data? Enable / Disable".That's simple. "Disable sending data? Enable / Disable" IS confusing and I hope you can surely see that. It's double negative.

I have another update: It seems like sometimes a notification which is catched by floatify crashes the notificationmanager of android and so it says "no new notification"    The notificationmanager starts again and the next message will (mostly) appear correctly.

And depending the second service(FloatifyService).  It doesnt crash, it never starts.

Man, I love this app now. I would've loved it even if it had just the macro function. But then it also has dynamic macro. And the define etc which doesn't need the app to be always running in notification..!! This just became one of my "must have" apps.

I was a little lost the beginning though. The video in the play store doesn't explain all the functions. It took some time to figure out what the "search+" is and how to use that. Still not exactly sure what the "share" thing does. Another video of examples is in the making?

Hey thanks Bikram! I'm glad you like it so much

Search+ and Expand were added after I made that video (and it's the second video already 😛) So yea I need to make another one soon.

Share is nothing fancy. Like if you need to translate some text, you can select some text and then share it to Google Translate app, etc

(If you have any ideas or suggestions regarding that, let me know!)

I am having two issues with this app. Maybe you guys can help me - 

1. It is making my Nexus 5 horribly slow. Whenever any heads up pops up, entire device starts slows to a crawl. Even when there's no heads up, device runs very slow. Uninstalled the app and now the phone is breathing fine. Do I need to tweak something in the app's setting?

2. It is hijacking my notification shade. I can no longer swipe down on navigation bar to pull down the shade. I haven't enabled the swipe gesture in Floatify's setting; so ideally it shouldn't have interfered with that.

Anyone's got any advise?

Will install it again and hope it performs better this time. The statusbar hijack is caused by something else because I still have that issue, even after uninstalling floatify.

Does the fast charge actually work on Nexus 5? I've always felt that ever since upgrading to lollipop, the phone charges slower when connected to laptop USB, even when fast charge is enabled. Checked with Ampere today. AC charging pulls in almost 50% more power. Doesn't look like fast charge is working.

I'm on franco r75, stock Android 5.1.1, rooted, xposed.

I'm 99.99% sure it's dependent on the type/"model"/"make"/whatever of kernel you've got on the go can dictate how effective fast charge really is and I THINK this can SOMETIMES vary all the more build-to-build of that same kernel, and ROM and the build of that ROM kinda impact it too, in a way. As far as kernels go I notice a huge difference. Without fast charge, for me at least, my battery percentage is at a standstill if I try and charge through my laptop and use my phone at the same time, yet if I'm using a kernel that allows for fast charging my recharge rate is comparable to plugging my microUSB into the wall charger nine times out of ten. On top of that there's one or two kernels I find to be ever so slightly more optimized for fast charge than their peers. Just how great your ROM of choice is obviously effects it as well but I don't think they really impact fast charge beyond dictating the discharge rate of the battery to a large degree.

Basically for me the difference between fast charge and no fast charge is the difference between charging from my laptop and from the wall being almost identical and charging from my laptop being completely pointless in any situation other than if I know I'll be asleep for 8 hours. That's my hammerhead, 5.1.1, fast charge experience at least. Maybe it varies by device or stock battery vs replacement battery or something?
