    Anyone got any cool or useful apps that can be set as your "Daydream"?

    Im using News Republic just now :thumbup:

    Prismatic Free is pretty nice as a daydream but also useless :)

    I loved just the clock aspect of daydream. But it interferes with LightFlow. Easy choice was to choose LightFlow over daydream

    Spoke to the LightFlow dev directly about this.

    Technically, when daydream is active, the screen is on. Therefore, LightFlow cannot use the LED. Here is a snippet from one of his replies to me:

    "Ok, sadly android is hard coded to have the led off when the screen is on. I know a few custom roms have put the option in to allow this, but there's no way to do this without root"
