AcDisplay version 3.0 gets Android Lollipop support

There are numerous apps on Android but only a few offer new ways to handle and customize notifications. The AcDisplay is not exactly a new app. In fact, the recent release is already the 3.0 version. It already has a copycat in the form of the HeadsUp but we haven't really given this one much attention.
