Screen Notifications

Notification helper

Have the screen turn on when you get a notification of a certain kind. You need to allow the app as an Accessibility helper in the System preferences. If the phone is in your pocket or the proximity sensor is otherwise covered, the screen will not turn on.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
