LG Electronics launched the LG V30 smartphone last month and I must say that this time they got it right. The LG V30 is their best attempt ever at creating a flagship device. In February of this year, LG had launched their then flagship that is the G6 with a bezel-less display design and a huge step forward from last year’s flagship, the G5. Speaking of G5, just after its launch itself, it was already not considered worthy of a flagship status due to numerous design and build quality issues. However, building upon the success of this year’s flagship, the G6, LG launched the V30 with an even more improved and refined design, and build quality. All in all, I must say that the V30 seems to be one solid device and a huge success for LG. Enough said, let’s get to the point here, today I would like to review an app called Floating Bar LG V30 that allows you to get the Floating Bar feature found in the V30.
Floating Bar features a floating button located at the edge of your screen indicated by an arrow. Moreover, tapping the floating button brings up a small bar with up to five shortcuts of your favorite apps. Other than apps, you can also assign shortcuts to tools, contacts, and website links (Paid features).
All said, let’s take an in-depth look at Floating Bar LG V30 app as depicted by the screenshots below.
Floating Bar LG V30 setup and features
Add apps. Tap the + icon to add an app shortcut to the floating bar. Tap and hold and drag to rearrange after adding all five of tour favorite apps.
Add tools. Tap the + button to add tools to the floating bar. Tools available are WiFi, flashlight, turn off the screen, silent mode, Bluetooth, and auto brightness. This feature is paid.
Add website links. Tap the + button to add shortcuts to links of your favorite websites to the floating bar. This feature is paid.
Here you have the option to choose the floating bar style, show the floating bar on the lock screen or not, collapse the bar once you tap anywhere outside the floating bar. Moreover, you also have the option to set the opacity of the floating bar.
Note: If you do own a Samsung device, to prevent the app from shutting down by itself, go to Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check Floating Bar and then press DONE.
Tap the gift icon located above the settings icon to donate and unlock all the features (tools, contacts, and website link shortcuts feature). However, you can also purchase each tab for $ 0.99.
