Receive Notifications More Quickly Thanks to Push Notifications Fixer

Have you ever been sat at your PC and received a Gtalk or Facebook notification, only to receive the same one a short time later on your phone or tablet? Perhaps you’ve been accused of ignoring somebody when in fact you hadn’t actually heard from them yet. Either way, it’s quite likely that Push Notification Fixer by XDA Senior Member andQlimax can help prevent such occurrences in the future.

The issue itself is caused by a timeout of the connection between your device and the Google servers. Once this happens, you will no longer receive push notifications until Android reestablishes the connection. GTalk has a built in countermeasure to this problem known as the heartbeat interval, which periodically checks this connection and reestablishes it if need be. Unfortunately, this is interval is set to 15 minutes on WiFi and 28 minutes via 3G. Push Notification Fixer will allow you to set that interval to a duration of your choice and keep those notifications flowing more freely.

The app requires root access and runs at boot to prevent the interval from being adjusted. This means that it’s not a constantly running application and therefore not draining your battery (unlike GTalk), but you will of course probably notice some extra drain if you set a particularly short heartbeat interval. Running on Android 2.2 and above, the application is totally free and devoid of ads, so check out the forum thread if you’d like to know more.
