New beta is out (1.30beta3)
This is probably the last before release. Fixes: Notification read out and repetitions are all cleaned up

► when you only listen to summaries, Touchless Notifications keeps track of which have been read already and doesn't repeat them (unless you turn the option off)

► if you cancel a read-out by shaking the phone or by pressing the back key, those will be re-announced in the next summary

► if you enable single (immediate car/headset mode) read-outs, they are not going to be included in the next summary

► exceptions to this are the notifications which were read out while you didn't have the headset / bluetooth audio connected. These are included in the next summary

► The operation of the test button in Settings has been changed: it will replay all the notifications as if the previous summary hadn't happened (kind of like a re-read function, but it might include new notifications which came in since the last summary)

►repetitious notifications and very short notifications (just telling you one app appeared in the notification bar) are not announced in car/headset mode

See how it works for you

500+/100+ Free/Pro versions
Because the display-less notification read-out was added to the application as an afterthought, currently the readout is implemented using a "@android:style/Theme.NoDisplay" activity. This is an okay, but far from optimal solution though. This way I have started to work on transforming the backbone of the app into a service instead, which needs to interact with the display activity when requested.

This conversion is expected to take a longer span of time. Alpha and beta versions will appear for those who signed up to receive early releases.

I keep you posted on the progress.

* fixed incompatibility with Google Voice Search 3.4 in car mode
+ Wave to mute: wave at the phone to mute immediate announcements when the phone lays flat on its back (great for "always" car mode and phone flat on desk)
~ rewired: display-less announcements now use service, not activity => incoming notifications will not switch away from certain apps
* says "a number starting..." in sms text for numbers not in your contacts (doesn't blabber all 10 digits only the first few)
* more ways to say "updated its notification"

Calendar Notifications
I started to work on proper calendar notifications.

Currently it would say things like

"Business Calendar Pro notification: Meeting with Andy Webber - College Hall 6:00, College Hall (Zoom to expand)"

which is not the most friendly. What makes this task complex is the fact that there are so many different calendar apps and they can have so many different notifications.

I can make it work with the stock android calendar, then maybe S Planner which comes preinstalled on Samsungs. Then Business Calendar which is pretty popular and the one I am using. Then? Maybe users should be able to pinpoint the Calendar app they are using and I will try to parse its notifications for start time and description... Or should I look directly into the calendar data stored on the phone?

Waiting for inputs on this. Is this an important matter? Any good ideas?

New 1.37beta
New voice command option: ►"(Show) what I missed"

~ Free version will remind less frequently

* Expanded notifications were trimmed but the new version will also trim the collapsed notification's second lines if too long (e.g. IMDB notifications)

* would speak during calls if "keep music playing" was selected for "Music interrupt". TN will never speak during call, under any circumstances.

~ most sliders were replaced with less space consuming check boxes in settings

+ new icons for these options (now they fit)

New features 1.38
Pre notification intro sound

Starting with version 1.38 the immediate "car" mode notifications will be preceded by a soft "click" sound and a 3 seconds delay (if either "shake to mute" or "wave to mute" modes are enabled, and no music is playing). You can prevent the notification read out by shaking or waving at the phone after you hear the intro "click".

External car mode control using intents

You can enable / disable immediate read-out ("car mode") by sending the following intent to Touchless Notifications:
  • mime type= text/plain
  • data= "car:n" / "car:h" / "car:a" (never / headset / always, don't include quotation marks)
  • package= hu.viczian.notifications.pro
  • class= hu.viczian.notifications.pro.setting
  • target= Activity

Use Send Intent command from Tasker, leave fields blank which are not mentioned above.
