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.

Screen Notifications is open source (https://github.com/lkorth/screen-notifications). If you have ideas or feature requests feel free to submit an issue or pull request.

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.

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

Doesn't seem to work on Nexus 6 This app doesn't seem to work on my Nexus 6 / Google Fi at all. Two stars because the UI is nice, well laid out why feels similar to existing Android Settings screens. If it functioned I'd be completely pleased with it.

Love it This app should be standard, don't know what was in Google's head by not waking up the screen on receiving a notification

I am loving it. This is exactly what I wanted. I did not want an app that would change the lock screen already set. This just wakes up the phone and shows you the notification. I like this so much I would pay for it.
