This is a sms and mms text notification utility aimed at giving those who do not have a visual notification system (such as an LED) on their phone. The alert pops up when you receive a text message or a picture message while the screen is off. Message Notification is also a great tool for those who already have an LED signal system. This also has the ability to repeat the text tone to remind you that you have a pending text.
To use, the screen must be off when you receive an SMS (text) or MMS (picture) message. The screen will then light up with the face of the latest person who contacted you and how many unread messages you have. You then have the option to dismiss the screen or to view the message which will take you to the standard Android texting utility.
Message notification has a screen timeout feature that will automatically turn off the screen (to save battery life) in 30 minutes of getting the message. This value can be overridden in the options menu. The repeating ringtone will play every three minutes. This can also be changed in the options menu.
If you have any issues, feel free to contact me so I can fix them as quickly as possible.
Also, this is Ad supported, therefore it uses many Ad permissions as well as many permissions to access contact photos and addresses, text messages, and pictures messages.

Users of Android 3.1 and above: A new security setting does not allow applications to receive text messages or mms messages if the application has not been started. If you experience problems please click on the message notification icon to start the settings. This will fix the issue.

    Well-designed, but missing a (imo crucial) feature. I'd love to see an update that introduced an option for the screen to turn on every however many minutes (user's choice) and stay lit a minute tv , then dim again. I don't know how many phones are missing a notification light like mine, but its my biggest annoyance with this awesome phone by far. The screen staying lit for over a minute at a tim

    Older version was MUCH better when you were able to see who was texting without having to touch the phone. Un-installed!

    Whenever I swipe to read a text, it takes me to a "reply" screen without the message. I have to back out twice to the main Messages screen before I can tap the new text to read it. Twice because the first one will take me to the last message thread I was in, so I have to back out of that one as well, unless it's from the same contact. The notification aspect works fine, but needing to muck around
