Notification Helper for Ingress

This app reads notifications send by the Ingress Game and saves them to a list.

- Helps you to keep track of your favorite Portals without being drowned in Notification noise.

- Saves chat messages otherwise lost within a flood if attack notifications.

- Displayed notifications can be filtered for favorite events.

Can not keep track of events that happen while Ingress is being used.

Android 4.4 or newer because of necessary API requirements.

This app does not access any Ingress server or Intel data, it just collects the notifications received by the phone.


Basic Manual:
You must "Activate" the notification helper in settings. You do this by allowing "Notification access" to the "Notification Helper"

Clicking on the star in "everything" tab or "attacks" tab will add the portal to the favorites, clicking on the star in "messages" tab will add the player to the favorites.

Separate notification settings for favorite-, attack- and message events.

Known Issues/bugs:
I receive some reports of crashes on devices with the exposed framework, I have no idea why.
Setting notification sound to "none" actually sets the default notification sound

Recent changes:
New in Version 1.5.0
- Custom potal matching for LTPs that have never been attacked before.
(including seperate settings for custom portals.)

- Extra settings for notification light.

Seems good so far. I'd love to have the ability to swipe away notifications to delete those you no longer need similar to gmail app.

Great for comm messages Tap on messages/alerts should open ingress. Needs individual sounds for individual events not just one sound for favorites.

Best App to Prioritize Ingress Notifications Rather than getting bombarded with countless amount of notifications by Ingress (either through Android Wear or my mobile device[s]), I've been able to successfully set up "Notification Helper" in a way to prioritize portals and communications. You can list favourites that will go outside of you "default" Ingress configurations if you've configured it to do so. I have it set up at the moment so that if any major anchors, guardians (mine or others) are attacked - it'll actually play a sound. Yes, this DOES require some configuration on the user's part. You have to make sure that it has the permissions to access your notifications, first and foremost. Secondly, you're going to have to wait until a notification comes in - then you can prioritize it based on your favourites/etc. I understand that it isn't intuitive for some; but, at the end of the day, its as functional as an app like this can actually be made to be without violating the TOS of Ingress.

Nothing happens I have activated the app as per the instructions in settings but nothing happens. It simply doesn't work. Am I missing something?
