Port Paranoid Android's Notification Peek feature to an APK and make it compatible with any KitKat ROM.

Google+ Community

I have published the app on Google Play through Beta channel, feel free to join the community to get the latest version.

What it does

Notification Peek (Paranoid Android) is a nice feature for displaying notifications on your screen when they arrive. It uses the device's gyroscope and/or proximity sensors to detect the status of the device and display the notifications in a minimalistic UI for a short time.

What I did

  • Removed several system APIs, and replaced them with public APIs.
  • UI tweaks, changed LinearLayout to GridLayout for displaying large numbers of unread notifications.
  • Added notification peek timeout option.
  • Added an option to choose which sensors are monitored when a notification arrives.
  • Added a methodology for dismissing notifications and locking the screen upon dismissing the final notification.

How to uninstall

Because the Device Administrator disables apps that is activated from being uninstalled, you need to do the following if you want to uninstall the app: * Go to your System Settings. * Select Security. * Select Device administrators. * Uncheck Peek. * Now you can uninstall the app.

What is missing

  • A lot of great features.

Known issue

  • Compatibility issue with Whatsapp.
