Apex Notifier is an extension application for Apex Launcher Pro (2.3+) and DashClock Widget (Android 4.2+). It provides notification data to those applications and does nothing on its own.



NEW: Apex Notifier now supports Android Wear devices!
Check the battery level of your phone straight from your wrist. There's no need to take the phone out of your pocket just to see how much battery is remaining. When an Android Wear watch is connected to your phone, a battery card appears on the watch that shows you the current battery level and charging status. To set up, just launch Apex Notifier on your phone and turn on Battery > Show on Android Wear. To customize the experience, you may control when the battery card shows up (e.g., when not charging or the battery drops below a certain threshold). You'll also find options to show additional battery information like health, temperature, and voltage.

When used with Apex Launcher Pro, unread counts will show up in badges on application icons. Please enable Apex Notifier in Apex Settings > Notification settings.

When used with DashClock Widget, Apex Notifier displays useful information from various sources. Please enable Apex Notifier in DashClock Extensions > Add Another Extension > Apex Notifier. You may enable up to 5 extensions for DashClock.

Supported Apps
  • Missed Calls
  • Unread SMS
  • Calendar Appointments
  • Gmail
  • HTC Mail
  • Samsung Email
  • K-9/Kaiten Mail
  • Battery Level
  • Stock Email
  • Google Talk (deprecated)
  • Google Hangouts (Android 4.3+)
  • WhatsApp (Android 4.3+)

Notes
  • Unread SMS provides the number of unread messages, not unread conversations.
  • Gmail unread count requires Gmail version 4.0.5 or higher.
  • If you update Gmail or install K-9/Kaiten Mail after installing Apex Notifier, you may have to re-install Apex Notifier to get proper permissions.
  • You do not need this extension for Aqua Mail. Just turn on external notifiers in Apex Launcher Pro, and you will see the unread count badge.
  • Battery level will be displayed in a numeric badge on Battery apps (the Settings app by default) in Apex Launcher Pro. Some battery settings (e.g., status, time, details) are only applicable for DashClock.
  • Notification data for Email, Google Voice, and Starbucks are retrieved from widgets. Please set up your account in those apps first. Depending on how often each app refreshes its widget, data may not be updated in real time.
  • Features listed under Labs are experimental and may stop working in the future.
  • When used with Apex Launcher Pro, please install Apex Launcher before installing Apex Notifier.
  • Apex Notifier only works with official versions of Apex Launcher Pro (2.3+). Please do not ask for support if you are using a modified or pirated version.

Apex Notifier beta is now available from Google Play! Here's how to get beta updates:
  1. First, join the Apex Launcher Beta Google Group. You won't get beta updates unless you are a member of this group. Make sure that you use the same Google account you use for Google Play. This is the same Google Group for Apex Launcher Beta. If you have already joined the group, you may skip this step.
  2. Next, visit this link and click Become a Tester. If you want to leave the beta program, simply return to that link and click Leave the Test.
  3. Finally, visit the Google Play page for Apex Notifier to update to the latest beta version.

Note: As Google replaces Talk with Hangouts, support for Google Talk has been removed since v2.0. Hangouts is supported via the new notification API. You need to be on Android 4.3+ and turn on Notification Access for Apex Notifier to get Hangouts support.

Feature Requests

For now, only apps listed above are supported. Integration with additional apps may be implemented in the future if there is official API or public content provider. There is currently no plan to support apps that do not expose APIs (e.g., WhatsApp, KakaoTalk). It is possible to support those apps by listening to status bar notifications using an accessibility service. However, it is hacky and suffers from some known issues (with Google Now and Talkback etc.)

Developers: Apex Launcher Pro also supports notifications from other apps. Please check out the notifications API at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1930365

This sounds great! Can't wait to upgrade my phone to Apex 2 to get a look at it.

How about support for Tasker? That would really make it a killer (I don't know whether Tasker has any open api, but I think so)

Not sure about Tasker's APIs, but what kind of integration would you like to see?

I'm not really clear yet on what Apex Notifier is able to do, but I'm thinking if it would just change Tasker variables upon events then the user would be able to do pretty cool stuff based on that. Or vice versa, if Tasker could trigger Apex Notifier to send notifications that would be nice as well. Obviously just thinking out of thin air here though

Found a page on Tasker's wiki with a list of other apps that integrates with Tasker, guess some of them could give good ideas. http://tasker.wikidot.com/plug-ins-and-3rd-party. Haven't really found any api, but since all those apps does it, I guess it has to be easy

/Daniel

edit: I think this is the place to look.

I get a FC for the notifier after installing. After every restart it crashes again. I use a stock Htc One X and the paid version of apex.

Sorry, it's not possible because I have no root. Can't make logs in JB without root.
