Pushes Android notifications from the notification drawer to any connected bluetooth device supporting AVRCP 1.3

Now supports Sony Smartwatch 2

* Show notifcations on car radio
* Show application as artist
* Show summery as album
* Show full notification text as title (can be splitted over multiple chunks max length is configurable)
* Play notification via TTS (text to speech)
* Use next / previous track to navigate through notifications
* Use pause / play button to remove notifcation
* Use forward button to close notification stream might help to regain focus to previous playing audio.

To test if your media device (car radio) supports AVRCP 1.3 play a mp3 song which has id3 information set and check if this information is shown on the media device.

There are two ways to provide this application with info about notifications via accesiblities or via notification access. The later one is the prefered method which is only support on Android 4.3 and up.

To enable Botifier via Notification Access (Android 4.3 only):
Goto Settings -> Security -> Notification Access -> Enable Botifier (Setting only available if Botifier is installed)

To enable Botifier via Accessiblity:
Goto Settings -> Accessiblity -> Enable Botifier

Do not enable both methods which will cause unexpected behaviour.

Source available @ https://github.com/grimpy/Botifier
Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rimpy.botifier


Make it possible to open the notification access settings (Usefull for LG phones who hide this settings)

Added support for Sony Smartwatch 2.
Preferences has been changed to distinguise between kind of notifications beter.

* Don't use TTS during phone calls

* Fix issue where TTS wouldnt respect blacklist
* Make TTS quiet when dismissing notification

* Fix showing old notifcation which have been removed (android 4.3 only)
* Fix showing notifications that happened when BT was not active
* Change Applicatoin Blacklist to Whitelist with select all/none option

* Fix toggle of persistent notifcation

* Add possiblity to black list applications
* Add timeout for clearing notifications
* Checkbox to ignore persistent notifications
* Restructured settings

Initial tests work on my HTC One with CM10.2. Pretty neat and amazing out-of-the-box thinking!

Sent myself a text while listening to Google Play Music. Music stopped and notification showed for text. Had to manually resume music.
