Notification Helper


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 only because of necessary API requirements.

This app does not access any Intel data, it just collects the notifications the phone receives.


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:
Import /Export only seems to work on local stoarge, if i try to save on Drive or Dropbox it fails.
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:
Individual notification settings for "favorites", "messages" and "all other" events
Ingress launch button (won't crash anymore if ingress not installed)
Live update of list when new events arrive

Very good, if you're willing to invest some time with it. As the title says, this application is excellent. What bothers me is that *will* get really useful after you have it installed for a long time (so all portals you will want to favorite have been attacked at least once, e.g.). Moreover, the default setting of just warning for favorite portals is useless for new installations, I would change this behavior. What I think would be way more useful would be a setting that would allow me to "mute" some portals. Is that possible?

Pretty much useless No push notifications. Doesn't stay open in the background either. It's only saving grace I'd that it's pretty, and what is beauty without brains?

Need more reporting options This app really needs to be able to report regardless of whether ingress is Oren or not. Need to be able to sort the messages when ingress is open. Also need more instructions on how to use.

not a bad app Ok giving this App a good review. Not a 5 star, but definitely helps clear up comms, lol. So good points... great UI. Very easy to maneuver around clicking (tapping) on buttons was easy and buttons well spaced. Informative, and easy to read. Ok now the bad... doesn't always report the comms. Which isn't totally bad, but could do with a better reporting system. It does report messages from players. It only reports attacks on your portals not portals with your resinators (which can be good). All round... It's a fair App and gets 3 stars. For 5 stars it could use some upgrades, like more info on the information being posted. A link that would bring up the portal, or message in ingress would be cool.

Good but missing things Things like the ability to manually add portals and players to favorites. Try going the extra hardmode and be able to read the global feed and filter out based on player name or location for maximum points. Do that and you get a 5/5
