Once One Shade is installed and launched for the first time, you will be taken to its presets. There you will see that on the main screen of the app, at the top of the app there is a switch with which you can turn it on and off. You will also be prompted to provide the permissions that are required to run it.

Once you have provided the necessary permissions, you will be taken to the application’s Home screen. Here you can turn One Shade on/off, and configure its appearance and behavior.

As for the settings, they are optional, and you do not have to touch them at all. But if you want to keep things under control, there are four sections for you: Trigger, Colors, Layout, and Extras.


In the Trigger menu you can enable/disable the option to pull the curtain from any place on the Use Trigger screen. Set the size of this place to “Size”, its position “Position” and color “Color”. You can also turn on the “Vibrate” in this mode.


In the Colors menu you can change the “Notification theme”, “Shade background-color” and “Shade foreground color” notification curtain icons, “Notifications background-color” quick menu, “Brightness slider color”, “Enable transparency” mode and adjust its level.

The Layout menu allows you to control the type of tiles in the quick setup menu (the “Small corners” switch). You also can turn on/off the display of status bars in the curtain (“Show status items”), set the grid size: “Grid rows” and “Grid Columns”. You can also set the number of tiles that are visible in the curtain after the first gesture of lowering it: “Numbers of header tiles”.


The Extras menu allows you to set the “Custom background image”, change the “Choose Profile Picture”, control the “Auto expand notifications” mode, set any “Custom carrier name” for a mobile operator, disable the application in full-screen mode “Remove in fullscreen” and in lock screen “Remove on lock screen”, disable the display of notifications in lock screen “Hide notification content on lock screen” and switch to Google Sans font.


With this application, notifications on your phone will be even more convenient. You can answer them as soon as you see a message or call notification. This feature is available for all Android devices. You can also do other things. For example, reject a notification, postpone, or just read it.
