Screen Notifications

Screen Notifications


A very simple app that turns your screen on for a specified period time when you get a notification. Optionally if your device is in your pocket or the proximity sensor is otherwise covered, the screen will not turn on.

Any ideas or feature requests are welcome, please email me with them.

Uninstalling
If you have enabled Screen Notifications as a Device Admin so the screen will turn off after a notification, in order to uninstall Screen Notifications you will need to first open the app and uncheck the Device Admin option. Once this is done you will be able to uninstall it.


HTC One Users
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


If you are experiencing a soft clicking sound with headphones, disable the proximity sensor and restart your device.

Great but ONE bug problem Background light keeps going on and off randomly even when there's no new notification it's a bit of a nuisance. Update did not fix.

perfetta fa quello che dice e aiuta a vedere i messaggi senza dover prendere in mano il cellulare ogni volta. utilissima la funzione che utilizza il sensore di prossimità per capire quando il cellulare é in tasca o nello zaino ed evitare un inutile spreco di batteria
