Anyone have a good solution to notifications being terrible in the Fire Phone? The combination of the lack of any sort of notification LED + the fact that the notification bar doesn't actually show you notifications means that its very easy to miss things. If you get a notification from an app that doesn't put it on your lock screen (as in, almost every 3rd party application), the only way you'll ever know is to pull down the notification shade. Is there any way to get it to show something up in the notification bar itself like every other Android phone?

I've been using dynamic notifications, that way you never miss a notification.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by dynamic notifications.

I think this is the app he was referring to.

Yeah that's the one 😊should have linked, apologies.

Once we get fire os 4, we'll be able to use apps such as notific too.

There's this one to try also: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2641557
Download here: http://releases.acdisplay.org/

That's acdisplay, and depending on your personal preferences might suit you better. I currently use this instead of Dynamic Notifications as I find it a bit more stable and suits my needs better.

I really like this one, thanks. I can't get it to show missed calls, everything else shows up. Any ideas?

I'm not sure, sorry. I hardly use my phone for phone calls lol. It should, in theory, show all notifications. Perhaps the dialler isn't supported and you could try a different dialler app?

I've just found out that on OS 4, there's no such thing as notification access in accessibility 😢 that's bad news for smart watches and apps such as notific which would use that 😥
