Another Take on Lock Screen Notifications with Notify Me

Notifications are handled through various methods on different platforms. Since the earliest Android versions, notifications have been available in the notification bar and sometimes as pop-ups. OEMs also implement different methods of showing them. For example, Motorola uses the Active Display on the Moto X, which basically replaces the notification LED.

Yesterday we talked about AcDisplay, which brings ActiveDisplay-like functionality to all KitKat-based devices. A similar concept was presented quite some time ago by XDA Senior Member TpmKranz as the NotifyMe! project. Now, a year after its initial release, XDA Senior Member anandbibek has taken over the project and released a new version with many improvements.

Notify Me! is a lockscreen notification app that allows you to see your favorite apps’ notifications directly on your lockscreen. It has per-app settings, so every application can be configured independently. And the latest version brings some new features like pocket mode, which allows you to check your notifications right after removing your device from your pocket or purse. You can then double tap the slider to expand or shrink notifications.

You can find the new, updated version by visiting the application thread.

We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
