But they do the same thing. And that any time you receive a notification, well, a little ring will pulse around your phone's punch hall to let you know that you've got a notification.

4. OLEDBuddy

OLEDBuddy - Apps on Google Play
Images with true blacks are great for OLED (including AMOLED) screens, as those pixels are actually off! This gives slightly better battery life, and brilliantly inky blacks. With OLEDBuddy, you can easily open an image, view which pixels are true black, what percentage of all pixels are true black…

If you have a phone with an OLED panel, and you might already know that if you use a black wallpaper, or even a wallpaper that is partially black, you can actually help to save your phones and battery life because the display can actually switch off any of those black pixels whenever the wallpaper is visible. Except sometimes when we think a wallpaper is black, it's actually just really dark right instead. And that means the pixels will actually have to stay on. And it'll save, you know, battery life. So OLEDBuddy is an app that analyzes any given image and shows you just how much of it is actually true black, you can then use the app to further darken those dark parts of the image to ensure that they are actually black. So you can then rest easy knowing you're actually using a wallpaper that will save you some battery.

If you're looking for a more traditional method of taking notes and staying organized, then you might want to consider Notally instead, this is a fairly run of the mill note taking app in terms of functionality. But in all honesty, there are about 1000 different note taking apps that you can find on the Google Play Store, many of which just have to put it bluntly, fairly lackluster designs.
