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!

An optional feature is available as an in-app purchase (0.99 EUR) with which you'll get these 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!

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.

Great app, but It would be better if there was an option it could still work when phone is set to silent, if this is possible?? Well done Dev, this is now possible. 👍

Must have IAP for Android Wear devices On my Moto 360, the vibration motor isn't very strong and it only vibrates for a short time, so I sometimes miss notifications. With this app, I can extend the vibration for longer duration and repeat as often and as frequently as desired, so I no longer miss notifications. One requested improvement would be to make vibration stronger (if possible) and/or add feature to allow setting of multiple vibrations in quick succession to make it even more noticeable.

Does just what it supposed to do. Additionally, I had a question for the developer and sent an email. I heard back in less that five minutes with my question answered. Great service.
