There is a bug in the HTC lockscreen that will cause the shortcuts to break and the lockscreen to be dismissed without unlocking. The affects all apps that use the accessibility service (Lightflow, Pebble, etc)

If your phone is speaking, try disabling Samsung TTS and Google TTS in your devices menu or check for an update to your device. This is a known Samsung bug they have started to fix

The best and simplest phone waker Does exactly what you need it to do, no frills and just the right amount of bells and whistles featured. Also does not drain battery like other screen wake up application. 5 stars.

Useful app. Does what it says. The only imp. thing missing is repeating notification at fixed or increasing intervals. Good work!
