Hello Mi Fans,|
Hope all of you are doing well. The notification shade is definitely an important element of your phone. Be it enabling mobile data or WiFi, or changing sound profiles, we often interact with the notification panel. If YOU are a fan of MIUI 10 and at the same time love to customise the notification shade, then today's app is for you, MIUI-ify - Notification Shade.
If you are using the app for the first time, you will be welcomed by a simple orange start up page. You need to swipe left to get started. To work smoothly on your android device, MIUI-ify needs some permissions to be enabled, like Accessibility service, Notifications and Overlay permissions. Once you are done with this, the last and final step will be to set a style for the panel background. You can choose a blurred wallpaper or background for it.
Before we start exploring all the features, one thing needs to be mentioned here is the Handle position. With the handle, you can pull up the bottom notification bar from the bottom of the screen. You can move the handle trigger to the right or left if your phone has navigation gestures enabled. You can also change its width and height according to your needs. There are many more options as well like choosing apps to hide the handle in, or you can hide it while keyboard is open. Oh, and don't forget to turn on the service by switching on the top button, as otherwise the app can't function properly.
TilesThis feature holds more than 40 different settings. You can drag and drop tiles to re-position them in the active or inactive area. things like, WiFi, Mobile data, Bluetooth, Sync, Location, Language, Sound, Screen Time out can be found here (Some of the toggles needs root permission to work).
One interesting feature of MIUI-ify is you can set the app to toggle settling for any frequently used apps or website URLs or shortcuts. Like here, I have created a toggle for my most used app Browser.
Sliders and Layout
In MIUI-ify, there are settings for both sliders and layout. You can opt for brightness, media volumes, notification or ringtone volume in the slider section. On this MIUI 10 theme based app you can also change the number of tile rows and columns. There is option to hide tile text or enable/disable icons in the system icon area as well.
Notifications and extrasYou can choose here to set notifications to have dynamic colours, or to customise the notification background. One twist here is, it's a premium feature. You will get a 10 hours free trial for it. The prmium brings as well extra tweaks, like vibrate on touch, open panel directly to expanded, auto close panel...
Color and background
This feature is my favorite. It allows to change the color or background of the notification panel.Starting from setting individual color and transparency to adding panel image of your choice, there is everything to make it exactly how you wish it to be. A lot of default color themes are added too, if you don't want to go to the effort .
SettingsIn the settings you can change the app theme to dark , white or black. The black one is my favourite, for its sleekness. Also note, a one time command can be executed from your computer that allows you to toggle the settings that need root permission. You would find a detailed guide for it in settings.But if you don't have proper knowledge of ADB,and can't take the consequences of something going wrong, don't try it.
Pros and Cons
More than 40+ toggle settings
control all your notifications
lot of customisation feature for the bottom notification panel
A lot of color and dynamic settings
change slider and layout
Many of the features are premium
sometimes crashes looses accessibility permission on its own
MIUI-ify gives you a smooth and customisable quick setting and notification panel at the bottom of your screen. Even if you are not a Xiaomi phone user, you can use it on your android phone and enjoy the essence of MIUI 10. The only issue with the app is that many of the features are premium.
