What it is :

Notific is lockscreen notification app that displays your notification in an intuitive manner when you need it.
It will automatically turn the screen on and display your notification in an easily accessible tabbed dialogue. It will also show notification quick action buttons if expansion is enabled.


Why it is special :

If the phone is in pocket, don't worry. Notific is intelligent enough to understand that and will not turn on the screen. But if you take out the phone from your pocket within 10secs (customizable) it will turn on the screen for you.

Notific doesn't impact battery life as it will only use the proximity sensor for 10 secs.
The memory usage is highly optimized (2-10MB) and doesn't use 50MB+ as in other notification apps.

From version 2.0 onward, Notific comes with a AndroidWear inspired theme for those don't prefer the dark holo look. (only 4.4+ devices)

The multitude of notifications we get every day are probably the most sensitive information for some and these deserve the utmost privacy.
That's why Notific comes with absolutely no private data mining. No crash data, No Google analytics collection.
It doesn't require connecting to Internet, so you can be sure that there's no way your information goes out of your device.


Project status :

The app is in active development and will get frequent updates and lots of features are in pipeline, including privacy mode and themes (features already there, but more to come).


Possible problems :

Proximity sensor values are calibrated for Nexus devices by default. If you have problems with the sensor on Galaxy or Xperia devices, try calibrating the sensor from app settings or TurnOff Pocket Mode

If you can't uninstall the app, Go to Security Settings in device settings menu -> Security settings -> Device Administrator -> uncheck Notific from list -> then uninstall

Downloads :

Free version :
Free version of Notific is named "Notific : Popup Notifications" which has EVERY feature as the paid one EXCEPT Blacklist/Whitelist function.
In case you decide to support me by downloading the paid version, kindly uninstall the free version first.

Hey this app is great, thinking of buying but the price is a tad too high for Indian users. I think it should be Rs.59($1) i.e half the price of your current price in Google Playstore. This app need a break through pricing just like the no. 1 app in Playstore - Poweramp Music player.
Please don't mind it's just a suggestion. Maybe you can give new launch discount

Hi, Thanks a lot for working on this app, Currently I am testing it.. Small suggestion, as a precautionary why don't you wait until some testing done on the app here in XDA forum before posting it in Play store.

Bz it may lead to less rating.. Which I feel the app doesn't deserve.

Thanks.

Well, what to say.. a cup of coffee costs 60INR which takes 5mins to make. The app took over 2 months, hours every day...
but I understand that it sounds high.
I'll see if I can do smthng abt it. Although I don't want to troll those who already bought at 2$

Play store allows us to refund an app. if it's not working you can refund and get your money back.
about testing, I used it for over 1 month and tested with 2-3 other people for one week.
there shouldn't be any problem..
And anyone who wants to check device compatibility is welcome to try the trial version first

Your sms app should have the action buttons in notification. Notific only shows those buttons if already present.

I use cyanogenmod and hence the sms app has those options. Try out 8sms.
