Maybe you know this situation: Your phones lays on your desk, you're in the kitchen and you get called. You do not hear your ring and when you come back to your desk, you don't notice that you were called because your device has no notification LED (and you're not using NoLED)...

Therefore I made another small app, called "Vibration Notifier" (name is not final) which does the following:
When you have a missed call or an unread SMS, the app keeps vibrating every X minutes for Y times or until you turn on the display of your device.
It supports missed calls, SMS, GMail and any other app which puts a notification in the status bar once a new event occurs (like WhatsApp, Google Voice, etc.)

I think the attached screenshot describe the intention of the app pretty good

App is now available throught the Android Market: Vibration Notifier

Current beta release: ---

Like vibrating every X minutes won't drain the battery? That's no excuse, make it work!

Nice idea for an app though, keep up the good work.

This is a great idea for an app. I'll install it once it's in the market!

Also to people talking about battery use, vibrating uses hardly any battery at all. It is not going to be noticeable.

I have a tasker task that does something somewhat simmilar... when my battery level drops below 15%, my phone starts vibrating once every minute. It's a subtle "charge me!!!" hint.

I think this is a great idea even for the people that have LEDs like me. However, I don't think the limitation to calls, sms and gmail is a good idea. You should find a way of making all the notifications vibrate every x minutes or adding a lot more to your app. For example Whatsapp (I installed your app today but noticed it was only for certain notifications so uninstalled it ) and let's say Twitter, Facebook... all this stuff.

Looking forward to a more complete version of this!!

Great idea!

Would be great if more notifications are available... (KakaoTalk?) Also, would be nice if there is a quiet hours option.
