[Tip]Wake up your Android screen when you receive a notification

Are you eagerly waiting for an email, file or some other kind of app update? A great app called Screen Notifications can wake up your Android screen when you receive a notification.

Some stock Android ROMs from various manufacturers such as Huawei and Xiaomi have this feature but this small app can bring it to any other Android device. Plenty of devices also have notification LEDs although for some users they might not draw enough attention.

Screen Notifications works in a simple manner – when you receive a new notification from an app it will light up the screen for the set amount of time. Obviously, this means you can select how long the screen remains lit and the app has a pretty wide time span for this – between 1 second and 15 minutes.

Sure, 15 minutes seems a bit extreme but at least the option is there. Furthermore, you can set up a delay between the notification arrival and the screen turning on which can also be between 1 second and 15 minutes.

Wake up your Android screen when you receive a notification

Another important option provides by Screen Notifications is it lets you select which apps you want the screen to wake when they send you notifications. This is extremely useful since most of us only find certain app notifications important. And with ‘Proximity Sensor’ enabled your phone’s screen won’t wake up for incoming notifications when the proximity sensor is covered or your device is in a purse or your pocket, for example.

Also, the app provides the option to set up “quiet hours” during which your display won’t light up from any notifications. Screen Notifications is definitely a simple (and free) solution to wake up your Android screen when you receive a notification. Download it from the link below to give it a try.
