✔️Show heads-up notifications on top of the current app you are using on any device running Android 4.0 or later.
✔️Allow you to perform any notification action such as archive gmail, callback a missed call, control music playback and many more.
✔️Allow you to directly reply a message (on support apps including WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook messenger and many more) directly from the notification.
✔️Allow you to mark WhatsApp or Telegram messages as read without opening the app.
✔️Allow you to fully customize the look of the notification including colors, sizes, transparency, placement and many more.
✔️Allow you to control privacy options so you can decide which information you want to show on the notification for any app.

*Important Node
Unfortunately since Android 8.0 NiLS can no longer draw on top of the lock screen due to Android restrictions. I'm working on a full standalone lock screen that will be able to replace Android lock screen but it will take a while.
