Automatically Toggle Samsung’s Always On Display When Charging [App]

Samsung gets a lot of flak for its performance optimization with regards to its software (though how much of that criticism is legitimate and/or accurate is a debate for another time), but it’s hard to deny just how much added value their software brings.

Google introduced actionable quick settings toggles from the notification bar in Android Lollipop, but Samsung devices have had this feature for much longer.

Betrayal of Hype: Playing Fast and Loose with Release Dates Breeds Consumer Mistrust

Yesterday, Google launched Allo on the very last day of summer, just narrowly squeezing into their “Summer 2016” launch window.
