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.

Any ideas or feature requests are welcome, please email me with them.

If you have issues or enhancements, fork me on github:

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

If you are experiencing a soft clicking sound with headphones, disable the proximity sensor and restart your device.

    I install this on all my devices. It is on my short list of essential apps. Every phone does not have this capability but this simple free app does it for you.

    thanks for the app! would be nice if it included a widget / desktop shortcut to quickly disable/enable the service.

    The app was working perfectly & with the newest updates it no longer times out after my set time period even with admin access granted. If you can't set the amount of time for use what's the point of the app?

    Works great. Just make sure you give this app the proper permissions on your phone. I didn't and gave it a bad review... But now we're good!

    A must have app, Great work. Does it drain your battery? I think it does. But who cares. Enjoy ;)
