Toq Alternative Notifications (a.k.a. ToqAN) is an app that enables Android Lollipop notifications to be sent properly to Qualcomm's Toq Smartwatch. Qualcomm's Default Toq App is not being maintained anymore, and it does not work properly with Android Lollipop (all the text of the notifications are sent in the title section). This app sends those notifications properly and enables an applet with the devices current notifications.

  • Install Toq Alternative Notifications (ToqAN).
  • On ToqAN, click on "Install Deck Of Cards" and enable the Applet.
  • Click on "Check Notification Permissions" and make sure that ToqAN checkbox is enabled.

Now, all notifications should be sent to the smartwatch.

Thank you for the great app! The Toq remains my favorite wearable, thank you for unobsoleting it!
ToqAN uses a lot of RAM (75MB for me). It is by far the heaviest background app on my phone. Do you know what is consuming all of that memory? Will it be possible to trim down the memory profile?
