0.7.8 will roll out in the Play Store today. The apk is almost identical to v0.7.8a3 but contains a couple more translations (btw, you can submit your own translations here: crwd.in/niagara-launcher). The notification bug is often reported after a release, I assume that they might stop working on your phone after receiving the update, but following the steps appearing on screen will most likely fix the issue.
As you may have noticed, 0.7.8a’s workaround for notifications didn’t really help, it even made them not showing up on unaffected devices. That’s why I removed it and tried something else instead.
Looking at open issues online, it seems that every other Launcher has to deal with the same - more than four years old - issue which some still hasn’t been fixed by various phone manufacturers ;(
If notifications broke only in 0.7.8a for you, they might not work again either on 0.7,8a3 because of the reversal until you revoke and re-grant notification access. At least Niagara will now inform you if the third workaround is not working as well and gives you suggestions how to fix it locally.
Moreover, the option to send a log containing all visible notifications has been removed from Niagara’s settings. Instead, you can search for “/notifications” in the app search to get all the information about them, but it’s rather meant for debugging purposes; to check if the launcher extracts the notification’s data correctly.
• Improved scrolling performance
• Prevent a few crashes
• Filtered out some media notification false positives (e.g. the media widget showed up sometimes while Spotify was downloading songs)
• Updated translations
Niagara Launcher is a fresh homescreen that has a clean and minimalistic ui. Due to its unique design you can open apps more quickly and use your phone with just one hand.
Niagara app drawer
All your apps in a neatly arranged list that is sorted alphabetically and by usage. You don’t even have to swipe to open it!
Read incoming messages right on your homescreen. See the full notification by swiping right. Furthermore, unwanted messages like advertising or persistent notifications are getting blocked.
Preinstalled apps (often bloatware) are annoying. Simply hide them, so you have a nice and clean homescreen.
This is just the start. Folders, shortcuts and widgets will be avaible in the future.
Also stay tuned for more exclusive features.
I would really appreciate some feedback and criticism. Reach me out here: Telegram Community: t.me/niagara_launcher, Feature requests & bug reports on GitHub: github.com/8bitPit/Niagara-Issues/issues
Hope you like my app :)
