MissedIt!
Text-based notification widget for missed calls/SMS/e-mails/apps

Link to the app on Google Play

Get information about the number of missed calls, unread SMS, unread e-mail messages and notifications from virtually any application a glance with this simple yet very customizable widget. You can use it with any lockscreen replacement app to access all this information without need to unlock your phone.

Missed It! must be enabled as an Accessibility Service to be able to receive application notifications ('Settings » Accessibility » Accessibility services'). If enabled and application notifications not detected, try disabling and then re-enabling.


Requirements
  • Android version 2.2 and up.

Features
  • Reports number of missed calls, unread SMS and pending voicemails.
  • If you use Gmail or K-9 Mail, you can obtain the number of unread messages of each account individually. In the case of Gmail, you can also select which label to monitor.
  • Also reports notifications from any application that uses the notification bar to report events (including WhatsApp, Tweetdeck, e-mail clients, etc).
  • Customization of font and background color and transparency. Also font faces (can use fonts stored in external SD card) and styles (bold, italic, underline).
  • Customization of the layout (alignments, margins, etc).
  • Text messages can be customized to show whatever phrase you want.
  • Represent numbers as text.
  • Resizable widget on ICS. With previous Android versions, there are multiple widget sizes available (user can select which sizes appears in widget list).

-- PERMISSIONS USED --

READ_PHONE_STATE, to get the voicemail state.
CALL_PHONE, to directly call to voicemail if there is any pending message.

This looks promising! I wanted TxMissed to break into two lines, and you've got that going on here already. I'll give it a try!

Edited to say - it would be nice if the background could be made transparent, if it can be, I'm not sure how to do it. I do like that it only shows the pertinent info, right now I have one missed text, and that's all that shows. It would be nice if the number of missed itens could be spelled out, like 'one txt missed', rather than '1 txt missed', or am I also missing how to do that, too?

You can. Go to the appearance settings and click on "color" under background, and when the color picker comes up, drag the alpha slider over to the right. Alpha is the level of transparency. Farther to the right, you'll get zero transparency, while the left is more opaque.


Does anyone know how I can get this app to check my TweetDeck notifications? Is it even possible?

It doesn't say anywhere that it supports TweetDeck so I would assume that it doesn't so far.

Currently you can't. But I think it could be possible in a near future using the notification abilities of ADW.Notifier.

Ah, okay. Thanks. I wasn't sure of the capabilities with the string editor included in the app.

The help shows all the parameters the application currently supports.

To all of you getting problems with the email, the application may not be querying the correct account. I will post today an updated version to fix this.
BTW, can you send me an extract of the logcat showing the error?

Edited: To temporarily disable checks on email account, go to Appearance, disable the Default output format and edit the Custom format to delete the [mails] parameter from the string. The application will know that we are no interested in that information and will not check for it.

new line not working
Looks like a nice app.
But the new line command doesn't work.
It shows all issues in one line.
Using SGS.
