Hi guys!
I'm developing an extension for Dashclock app (You can download it from the Play Store)
The extension will show unread messages from Whatsapp.
IT'S A BETA, so there may be bugs.

There's already a similar extension on the Play Store that I tried but it has not real-time notifications: you have to lock and un lock your screen to view unread messages from whatsapp. Mine has real time notifications! :D

You can freely download and install the extension and report bugs and suggestions in this forum.

ONLY FOR ANDROID 4.2+!!

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Download the extension on you smartphone
  2. Install the extension
  3. Activate accessibility service from Accessibility item in Android Settings
  4. Add the extension from Dashclock Settings

Let's have a try ;)

UPDATE 23/03/2014
Sorry guys...I won't update this extension and this thread anymore.
There are other similar extensions on the play store more updated than mine

If anyone of you wants the source code I will be glad to give it to you.

Re: [APP][4.2+] Dashclock Whatsapp Notifications Extension!

Good job on this. One suggestion, the notifications are displayed within brackets... Would look cleaner without.

I attached string.xml on the first post. It's yours, do what you like. When you're done post it in this forum and I will add to the project ;)

    AW: [APP][4.2+] Dashclock Whatsapp Notifications Extension! 1.1.3 [27/03/2013]

    What does "Activate accessibility service from Accessibility item in Android Settings" in the instructions at the first post mean? Can't find this...

    Go into System Settings>Accessibility
    You should see a menu item calles "Whats App Notifications". You have to turn this item on.

    what does this app do. can you plz explain properly

    It's not a standalone app. It's a plugin for the app Dashclock. It capture Whatsapp notifications and shows them on the lock screen. That's all ;)

    I really like your dashclock extension! I just have one question: Would be it possible to show the firstname instead of the lastname of the sender?

    Gesendet von meinem Nexus 4 mit Tapatalk 2

    Actually it should show both the first name and the last name of the contact as it is saved in the contacts list.
