Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Customize your Notifications with E-Mail Notifier for Android
You may remember that not too long ago, we released an article about an app called SMS Notifier. Well, XDA member mapeapps decided to come up with a similar app for Android, but this time, it is targeted at e-mail notifications. The features and characteristics of the app are pretty much the same as it allows you to customize the type of notifications that you get. You can show number of read/unread articles, customize sounds, the looks, and even get a preview of the e-mail that you are receiving in a pop up bubble that will not take you out of the app that you are currently running.
The app is a nice concept of an aspect of the UI that is not too customizable to begin with. If you feel like it, take the app out for a spin and make sure that you leave some feedback for the devs.
When we first released our SMS Notifier, we knew we want to implement the same cool features for the e-mail part as well. From the start it was not easy and it took us quite a few restless nights to do so, but from today it’s out:
E-mail Notifier is an application for Android OS 2.0+, that allows customization of incoming e-mail notifications.
Currently supports only the Gmail accounts and requires Gmail to be installed to function properly.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
