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

Recent changes:
2.2:
fixed issues with apps displaying multiple notifications (like K9 mail app)

2.1.9:
added workaround for a bug in some Android 2.3 devices which caused the app to crash

2.1.8:

- "vibrate even when in silent mode" will now check the silent mode state on the Wear device instead on the phone

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.

Good App for What Android Removed It's unfortunate Android removed the persistent notifications settings, but this app adds it back in. Easy to use, able to choose what apps to use it for. Only complaint is that sometimes my phone will ring with no notifications being received.

Android Wear support I haven't been noticing notifications on my watch much since vibration is low. This app pretty much helps me, and in app purchase is worth it. However, it will be awesome if you could set minutes and seconds for the repeat part. Another thing is the app selection. Since i block certain app notifications on my watch, it will be helpful to add the feature "All apps except..." in the app selection menu as im forced to tick every app except for the 3 annoying apps rn. Thanks alot:)
