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.

Just what I needed After the latest Samsung update, my screen no longer turns on for notifications. This app works absolutely the same with some additional features. Very satisfied!
