APP DRAWER OPENING STYLE
Reduced app-drawer choppiness by making app-drawer fade-in / fade-out optional. This only affects app-drawer mode, when the app drawer is pulled into view, the background color:
► SOLID = becomes opaque as soon as you start to pull
► TRANSPARENT = constant 50% see-thru during transition
► FADE = progressively changes from transparent to opaque
IMPROVED FIRST IMPRESSIONS
App drawer fade-in, bubble animation and Sticky open are all OFF by default (these add a slight perseptive delay to opening apps – apps open just as quick, but app drawer needs to be kept on screen longer to catch the optional 2nd tap to open in sticky mode) You can enable any or all in the Expert settings (watch or phone)
IMPROVED BUBBLE ANIMATION
Just like in watch-face mode, the animation only lasts as long as the launched app is loaded. As soon as the launched application appears on the screen the spinning bubble animation fades out.
RETAIN BACKGROUND ON STOP
I noticed if I choose the “Now Playing” background provider the background will be blank if nothing is playing (I confirmed it acted like this on other watch-faces too). Enabling this new option under Expert Settings, the last played album art will stay on, even after you stop the playback. For me this change makes the Now Playing background much more usable. But the default is to have this option off, because for some users it might make more sense to have a clear background (uniform color) when no media is playing.
As you can see, the app is being developed actively. If you find any bugs or crashes, please contact me so I can fix as soon as possible.
