A very simple app that turns your screen on for a specified period time when you get a notification. Optionally if your device is in your pocket or the proximity sensor is otherwise covered, the screen will not turn on.

Screen Notifications is open source ( If you have ideas or feature requests feel free to submit an issue or pull request.

If you would like to translate this app, please take a look here:

If you have enabled Screen Notifications as a Device Admin so the screen will turn off after a notification, in order to uninstall Screen Notifications you will need to first open the app and uncheck the Device Admin option. Once this is done you will be able to uninstall it.

HTC One Users
There is a bug in the HTC lockscreen that will cause the shortcuts to break and the lockscreen to be dismissed without unlocking. The affects all apps that use the accessibility service (Lightflow, Pebble, etc)

If your phone is speaking, try disabling Samsung TTS and Google TTS in your devices menu or check for an update to your device. This is a known Samsung bug they have started to fix

    I just wish the notification choosing service was based off of a blacklist instead of a whitelist. It's still great, but it can be annoying when installing new apps.

    The "screen wake length" should reset after we interact with our notifications. I've set the screen wake length to 5 seconds... it'll turn on my screen but will shut off after 5 seconds even if I expand the notification. I do not want to set the wake length to anything longer than 5 but to be able to read all of my notifications in 5 seconds is impossible. Nexus 5 - Cataclysm Lollipop.

    Not a big fan of the ambient display on lollipop. Found this, works perfectly.
