Glance Plus user reviews :

So far so good So far this app is working nicely… With the PEEK glance set my note 4 battery lasts pretty normal not much drain. The $5.00 donation without background is well worth the price for this app.. Just donated in order to unlock the extra features. Changed from three stars to five stars… Excellent app

Nice app.not a power hungry app BUT I’ve found it sometimes it automatically turn off its self even if i’m not doing anything..hope it would be fixed.

Best and completely Show glance after wave over sensor and pull from pocket faster,very faster

Good very good. Many options and different clock schemes. Good job.
