Small YACO option to be done

I am a bit disappointed, I must say, of Samsung.

CyanogenMod had the feature for the “red filter” of the screen to make it dependent on sunrise/sunset times. Well Samsung adds this feature also – but as soon as I switch off GPS, the screen becomes blue again. Bloody dumb developers! It should be trivial to store the “last known” position easily. I am not going to travel far without being able to switch on GPS temporarily so that the filter can adjust.

Time to add a red filter to YACO…

Personal Sunrise and Spotify

I would have liked to integrate Spotify, but as I also include “other streams” for the alarm sound, so it is not allowed:

Spotify Developer Terms of Use

Section IV: Restrictions

Spotify Content Restrictions

  1. Integration with Third Party Services. You shall not create any product or service by integrating the Spotify Platform, Spotify Service, or Spotify Content with (i) any non-interactive internet webcasting service or (ii) with streams from another service.


The Android SDK is explicitly prohibited from use for in-car apps, re-streaming aka “listen together” apps, alarm tones, ring-tones, voice-assistants, and offline experiences for wearable or other devices.


Well then… no Spotify in the app.

YACO 1.3 with GPS items

When I returned from vacation, I wanted to see the path of the plane and use MAPS, but also wanted to see the speed and height. MAPS does not show any GPS data -OSM would do, but I had not all maps available on my device. Thus I added some GPS items:

  • count of satellites
  • speed
  • height
  • climb/sink rate

These items are located in a new line, which disappears if GPS is not deactivated, not using any device resources, until GPS is activated again.

YACO 1.2.2

Found some way to find out the information about the power supply (high/normal load) which would be important information, and I added the code, yet the S5 seems not to support it, at least with CyanogenMod. S4 does not even with Lineage OS 14.1.

In that context, I added some more information to the battery state like blinking on error/low state.
