Although, there are various SMS popup type applications for Android, XDA forum member mapeapps (two developers) decided to write their own app since they couldn’t find a decent lightweight solution.
SMS Notifier, is an SMS and MMS Notifier which gives you an option for privacy settings (so that the body of the message and/or sender is hidden).
Other features include:
- Shows number of unread messages in notification bar.
- Adjustable level of privacy.
- Customisable sound, vibration and LED notifications.
- Possibility to change the icon in the notification bar.
- On screen preview of new incoming messages.
- Notification reminder system.
- Quiet hours feature.
- Designed for low battery consumption.
