Minimize Distractions with Scrolling Notification Free

If you spend any amount of time on the XDA-Developers forum, you are probably on your mobile device so much that many people believe it is a mechanical appendage of your body. From streaming videos on YouTube, Netflix, or Hulu to browsing XDA or the web to playing games to rooting your phone, you are always draining your battery doing something on your phone.

Sometimes when you are busy and receive a text message, you ignore it because you don’t want to stop what you are doing and leave your application to read and respond. XDA Forum Member srelyt has a solution for your Android 2.2+ device with his application Scrolling Notification Free.

With this application, you can view a scrolling notification of your SMS. You can respond to the text message right from the notification bar. This means you don’t have to leave your Netflix viewing of Stick It to respond to your buddies to explain why you are watching Stick It. You can additionally set it up as an RSS feed reader.

For more, information visit the application thread.
