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.

Troubleshooting: 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!

An optional feature is available as an in-app purchase (0.99 EUR) with which you'll get these repeating vibrations on your Android Wear smartwatch!

* 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 & Android Wear
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
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Android Wear communication

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.

Not compatible with my MOTO 360. Refused to refund me!!! After about 15 emails back and forth between us the developer not only refused to give me a refund but blamed this incompatible app on my MOTO 360. He suggested I RMA it because his app did not work properly on my watch. He also said that he would not be able to refund me unless I removed my negative review [which I did]. However there still was no refund. When installing the app [2x] for some reason it negated my watch's ability to show my email text. Once uninstalled and reset, my watch once again works perfectly.Now I read my emails whereas with his app installed I could not. Again the developer told me to RMA my watch. He also said I was the only one with this problem so it must be my watch. I beg to differ because like I said previously the watch works perfectly without this app. Just because I might be the only one does not mean I should not get a refund. I only kept the app for about 2 hours. It is now deleted. There was a recent update for the 360. The update negated any vibration with email notifications. Prior to the update this was not an issue. This was the reason I bought this app. After the uninstall and reset all works perfectly like prior to update. 0 of 5 stars !!
