Lightbulb [APP][2.2+] Scrolling Notifications Free (SMS, RSS, Twitter and more)

Hi xda!
I developed a new application and this is the free version!

This app makes your incoming sms, the rss example or tweets(from your timeline/mentions/DM) scroll on top of the screen in whichever application you are! Perfect for reading long sms without stopping playing your favorite game or watching a movie. You can directly respond to SMS and tweets, preview RSS article or open it in a browser. (and mark sms as read in paid version)
The settings screen shows you also the features of the paid version if you ever decide to upgrade (not all the settings changes will take effect on the free version )

There might be bugs so don't hesitate to report them to me, I'll do my best to correct them
If you want to help me translate the app in your language, I'll be very happy to provide you the necessary file in order to do it! For the moment, it is available in English, French and Swedish.

And here is the link! Scrolling Notifications Free
If you can't download on the market for one reason or another, here is a direct link but please prefer the market version, it's easier for statistics, plus there are explanations on the Play Store page

Looks like it could be very useful.

I will check it out in the coming days (Diablo 3 is going to be taking my spare time )

Cheers

Yes of course! I will update the OP now.
I added a RSS example if you select this mode. You will see titles of latest xda articles update and display once every 10minutes.

Great app, works well on my Galaxy Note. I'm eager to purchase the full app but i think it would be nice if the developer added support for Whatsapp.

Thanks for the feedback!
For the support of third-party apps it seems difficult to fully implement but using the accessibility service could help find a partial solution (you will in the scrolling bar what usually goes in the notification panel, the problem is if you have more than 1 unread messages it usually display something like "Mercury Messenger: 2 unread messages" without the content of these messages) but I'll sure look into it for some future versions!

By the way new version!
With 1.2.0 you can enable Sound/Vibration notification which mimics the states of your phone (Silent/Vibrate/Normal) so if you decide to disable the classic Android notification, you'll still have the sound/vibration/nothing(xD) for SMS! That was lacking!

Nice app, good idea, work well without problem. I used Notifier Pro but it's a big battery eater, it seems your app isn't.
I don't like the icon,as you can see in the screenshot the size of the text is not good, maybe due to my launcher i don't know...
I think interface could be improved too but it's a good beginning. I think i'll buy the pro version to support a french developper ;)

Merci!
Yeah the icon sucked, I'm not a graphist, I wanted to render a scrolling effect by cropping the text on borders but it was a bad move . I changed the icon for the new version I just released (that's why I respond so late sorry!) I hope it's better but I'm open to any propositions/suggestions for modification!

Of course with the new version, there are new features!
Now in the free version you can touch the scrolling bar like in the paid version so you can directly respond to a sms or previsualize a RSS article or open it in a browser! ( You still cannot choose your RSS source in free version, and mark SMS as read is also only availaible in paid version. )

Hope you like it!
