    Bored with the stock lock screen notifications? replace them with NiLS lock screen notifications without replacing your lock screen app*.
    Get Heads-up notifications while you are using another app with a direct-reply option without leaving the app, even on Android 4.3!

    What NiLS can do?
    Show notifications on your existing lock screen, on any device running Android 4.0 or later.
    Show heads-up notifications on top of the current app you are using on any device running Android 4.0 or later.
    Allow you to perform any notification action such as archive gmail, callback a missed call, control music playback and many more.
    Allow you to directly reply a message (on support apps including WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook messenger and many more) directly from the notification.
    Allow you to mark WhatsApp or Telegram messages as read without opening the app.
    Allow you to fully customize the look of the notification including colors, sizes, transparency, placement and many more.
    Allow you to control privacy options so you can decide which information you want to show on the notification for any app.

    *Important Node
    Unfortunately since Android 8.0 NiLS can no longer draw on top of the lock screen due to Android restrictions. I'm working on a full standalone lock screen that will be able to replace Android lock screen but it will take a while.

    It's okay. I like how you can customize how the notifications look, that's my favourite feature. But sometimes when I view my lock screen, the notifications will take a few seconds to actually show up. I would prefer if they were instant. Also when I try to unlock my phone using the "dots", the notifications will get in the way. Oh and the privacy settings don't work for me. Fix these problems, and it's a 5 from me.

    It's been so great with this app. But after i upgraded​ to android oreo it can't function and i understand ur having trouble bypassing android restrictions. Great job! Waiting for the update for android 8.0, if even possible.
