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.

Great tool Great way to setup notifications for only certain portals you care to be notified on.

Great App There's usually only a handful of portals that I really care to be notified about if they're under attack and this application has really helped me filter out the extra noise from Ingress. With the recent addition of "Custom" portals, adding new portals to my watch list is much easier, I just wish there were a better way of getting the address to a portal prior to it coming under attack. Being able to specify different tones for standard/favorite/messages/custom is also awesome. I have pretty much turned off notifications for Standard message, set the standard tone for Favorite, a custom message sound for Messages, and I'm toying around with using Custom as a High Alert notification, you know...the super important portals.

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.
