Never Miss a Notification with Vibration Notifier
The idea of never missing a notification, ever, at first sounds a little impossible. How many times have you got caught up in work, music, playing a game or watching TV and have forgotten to check your device for a while? It’s annoying when you discover you haven’t responded to you Mum about your washing for hou… nevermind.
Thankfully, XDA member j4velin comes to the rescue with his dandy app that he likes to call Vibration Notifier (working title). What does it do? Something which might save you from not noticing that occasional important call or text for too long. It allows you to specify how regularly it continues to vibrate after a notification has been received, like a call, text, Twitter and Facebook, for example.
Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? Yes, it does, and if you’d like to grab this for yourself, I implore you to head on over to the original thread, download the provided ‘apk’ file and leave the developer and message of support!
