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:
- fixed wakelock issue
- fix: Vibration Notifier should not vibrate or beep during a phone call
- fix: Widget was not working on Android 4.3+

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 little app. Like a vibrating nudge. You get a message or call but you left it to stop by it self, then you forgot about it..... now it can nudge you every ( what ever you want) let's say 56sec, and stop after 14 nudges. Also no reminders while you sleep between say 11.34pm and 6.42am ... you get the idea, it's that flexible... running on my galaxy note 3. great app. 5 stars.

Vibe Note. Just wish it vibrated like my RAZR did. I could tell if the Couch Monster ate it and where in its bowel's it was! Or if it was lost inside or outside.

Does not seen to work. Yes it is set up correctly. Clicking the ? mark gives me a summary of what should happen but it never does.
