Vibration Notifier

Vibration Notifier


Maybe you know this situation: Your phones lays on your desk, you're in the kitchen and you get called. You do not hear your ring and when you come back to your desk, you don't notice that you were called because your device has no notification LED or you don't notice that little blinking...

Vibration Notifier offers a solution to this scenario: When you have a missed call, unread SMS or any other event*, the app keeps vibrating every X minutes for Y times or until you turn on the display of your device.

If you have any issues, please click on the question mark icon in the app to see common issues and how they can be resolved. For example, the app won't beep if your device is set to silent mode etc. Please note that the app does not change the vibration setting of the other apps, it will only do additional vibrations/beeps if you don't turn on your display before!

* all apps which notify you about new events by showing a notification in the Android status bar are supported, like WhatsApp, GoogleTalk, Twitter, facebook, etc. Note that this require access to your notification bar


---------
Silent hours: Please note that when you set up a silent hours interval in the app, only Vibration Notifier itself won't vibrate or beep. It does not mute other apps so if you receive a new mail, your GMail app might still beep!



Permissions:
VIBRATE - obviously necessary to enable the "vibrate every X min" feature
READ_PHONE_STATE - needed to detect missed calls
RECEIVE_SMS & READ_SMS - needed to detect unread SMS
WAKE_LOCK - seems like this is needed on some device to avoid infinite vibrating
READ_CALL_LOG & READ_CONTACTS - needed to differentiate between missed & rejected calls
READ_CONTENT_PROVIDER & GET_ACCOUNTS - necessary for new method to get unread GMails

Recent changes:
1.5.8: added 3 seconds delay after receiving a new notification before checking the display state (some apps turn the display on and therefore would stop the reminding)

1.5.7: fixed issue with Gmail unread count

1.5.6:
- fixed reported crashes
- ignores notification from the package "android" ( = system notifications) whenn "all apps" is checked

1.5.5:
- fixed issue with Android 4.3 notification listener

User reviews of Vibration Notifier
Notifications were not clearing: Notifications sometimes continued, even after turning on the phone and reading the message. This was quite annoying. My Phone: Incredible with Android Gingerbread 2.3.4. This app works better: "Missed Message Flasher" (free and paid versions) More options and compatibility settings.

Buggy since larger update This app used to work nicely. But for the last couple of weeks, ever since the major update, it occasionally is just plain annoying: The app started to notify about messages/events when there are none. It vibrates or beeps, but there is nothing on the unlock screen or notification bar. It seems the app fails to see when a notification is cleared, not always, but every now and then. Please fix this. This app was essential for me, providing a feature that Android lacks in my opinion.

Vibration Notifier Outstanding! My phone ringtones and vibration are far too weak. App pesters me relentlessly until I notice missed calls and SMS. Highly recommended.
