Sometimes when I try to peak for time, connectivity or power, only the apps are shown and the interesting part is hidden. I have to leave the app for this information.

Issue still present in and!!

And it is still present in!! Like Anz wrote/answered: "this happens when you peek shortly after launching an Android app".

Next time it happens, please check: Do you peek from a native Sailfish application or are you in an Android application? I'm not entirely sure myself, but my experience is that this happens with Android applications only.

this happens when you peek shortly after launching an Android app.

  • issue will go away if you have switched (not just peeked) at least once to the home screen after the Android app launch
  • or if you have switched (again not peeking) to the event screen at least once after the android app launch, then also the issue will be gone.

  • this happens every time a new Android app is launched

  • Note: if u peek immediately after launching the android app, that is before the app is fully loaded.. (you can see "Loading.." on the app cover), then time & status will be visible
  • but once the android app is fully loaded, then the peek won't display time & status until a switching has been made to either the home screen or the event screen

If you peek from android application that was in landscape mode the peek shows only running apps.
