Get Reminded Of Messages And Missed Calls With Phone Notifier
If you find yourself missing messages and missed calls, you might want to take a look at XDA Senior member barito‘s new Android application.
Phone Notifier is configurable for sound, repeat intervals, repeat counts, vibration and LED colour. Additionally the app lets you set the instant of the remind ends – via a maximum number of repeats or when the screen comes on, or the device becomes unlocked etc.
The application and the associated services are only executed when an SMS/MMS arrives or when a missed call is detected, and are destroyed when the notification ends.
For more information including a full list of permissions required and to download the apk, check out the application thread.
