Thumbs up [APP][4.1+] Notifications Off


I want to introduce my application "Notifications Off" for controlling application notifications in a centralized way. Instead of toggling notifications for applications individually from the settings screen you can update the settings for all applications from one place. As the feature was introduced in Jelly Bean obviously it only supports Android 4.1 and up.

The app can also automatically disable notifications for new applications as soon as they are installed.

Keep in mind that root is required for the application.

Feedback, suggestions and ideas are welcome.

Seems like it could help me handling unwanted notifications...

But it says that my device isn't compatible with this version on the Play Store.

I'm running a 4.1.2 ROM on my Galaxy S3 (Omega ROM) so I should be eligible, as far as I understand.

I don't know what else to say to help you identify the problem, let me know what you need.

Thanks for your help anyway, and for the app

same problem here, I can't download the App on my GS2 (which I am using atm), but I can do so on my old Xperia X10 mini pro .

The app simply doesn't show up in the market.

Edit: Seems logical that if I'm on my main rom (which is 4.0.4) I won't be able to install it...

Will this work for system notifications such as "External Storage Inserted" which comes up on my Asus Transformer Infinity whenever I have my microSD card in (which never comes out)?

Thumbs up Can you make it compatible with 4.0??

Is there any way you can make it compatible with 4.0 devices. It will be awesome to have. Especially for those people who are stuck with 4.0 forever.

I know the notification control system is not present in ICS but I wonder if root can help in this scenario.

Thank you

Great Job

I have been looking for something like this ever since discovering JB has option to turn off notifications ...


Usually Autostarts program prevents most apps running automatically in the background, but some still seem to run & pop up with useless notifications

I don't suppose anyone knows what process, that may be visible in Autostarts, would be responsible for kicking an app into action when it decides to prompt a notification ?

Can you do something like "BackgroundDataOff" too? (very useful for limited data plans)
You can merge both functions in one more generic app.
