Even though most phones nowadays have prominent notification LEDs, it’s not uncommon for us to pick them up and stuff them in our pockets without noticing these sporadic flashes. Often times, we’re either not looking at our devices when grabbing them or are simply too busy thinking about other things to actively check to see whether we have an incoming notification.
Luckily, there are smart apps available that help us get around this issue. One such app comes from XDA Forum Member spirosbond. Vibify is a vibration smart alert app that lets you know when you have a new notification as soon as you pick up your device. The app works by sensing when you’ve moved your device. Once it detects movement, and if you have a new incoming notification, Vibify vibrates your device to let you know that you should check your phone.
Vibify can easily be customized to fit your needs. For starters, it allows you to customize a list of applications that can alert you. You can also disable functionality when your battery’s running low. Finally, you can even configure the app to turn your screen on when picked up if a notification is present, in addition to simply vibrating your phone.
If you find yourself frequently missing important notifications, head over to the application thread and give Vibify a shot._________
