OnScreenClock: back to 1 app

When google released Android Marshmallow, they introduced a new permission model. I jumped on the band wagon too eagerly and as a result, the OnScreenClock app had become unusable on Marshmallow and up due to an unimplemented feature on Android TV. Complaining to google did not help.

So I did the only thing I could do: release a new app targeting an older api. This app is known as “OnScreenClock Marshmallow” (a bit of a paradox, i know ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). Recently, however, just when I was about to migrate all users of the old app to the new one, I discovered Google has relaxed their policy, so now the “old” app is good to go again! I guess it was causing too much trouble for users everywhere.. This is undocumented so I guess Google wants to keep that change low profile. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This also means the future is uncertain, but that’s life, right?

To all users using theย “OnScreenClock Marshmallow” app, please migrate to the “OnScreenClock” app as I will not be further developing the “OnScreenClock Marshmallow” app anymore.

Apologies for the inconvience.
