Well, well, well, my friends, here I am again.

After Google I/O I decided to bring the feature which I liked the most - heads-up notifications!

The filtering rules are pretty feature-rich - whitelist or blacklist, ignore or do not ignore ongoing notifications, hide notifications during quiet hours or when some apps are active...

The app is free with Pro-version, but for my friends on XDA the app is totally free-of-charge.

And here are some screenshots:

For people who want to support me here is the Google Play link:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.woodblockwithoutco.headsup

If you decided to buy Pro version my app - thank you! Because of you, yes, I am talking about you, I can continue my development :)

New in 2.0.1:
-Swipe to left to dismiss heads-up only, swipe to right to dismiss heads-up and notification(can be reversed)
-Multiple notifications
-Hide heads-up while certain apps are active
-Quiet hours
-Bug fixes
-Material design
-Lollipop-compatible


New in 1.1:
-Disable auto-expand
-Ongoing notifications can be dismissed
-You can keep statusbar notifications while dismissing heads-up
-Transparency
-Ability to post test notification
-"Ignore silent" was removed due to a lot of problems it caused
-Added ability to ignore low priority notifications
-Whitelist/blacklist
-Show heads-up on lockscreen

New in 1.0.3:
-Added workaround for WhatsApp bug.

New in 1.0.2:
-Ability to completely ignore whitelist
-Fixed the bug where you always received message about starting the service
-Added hint when service is started
-Fixed transparent background bug
-You can change position of heads-up notification

Now, the final part - the APK!
Sadly, the app is available only on Android 4.3+ due to limitations of notifications listeners on versions less than 4.3. I've tried very hard to leverage accessibility services, but failed due to inability to recover full information about the notification.

Which Android version do you use? Is it a MIUI by chance?

Also, try rebooting the phone. Sometimes the service doesn't start for some reason(you may check it in the Running apps section).
Nevermind I restarted my phone and it worked and I'm using Samsung galaxy s4 4.4.2 everything works but there's no background on the notification unless it's supposed to look like that. . And it crashed when I double tap the notification

Well, it's not supposed to look like that. I'll see that I can do about it. What app posted that notification?

Good job! But like Swordxe, it doesn't have a background too. But it does what it is supposed to when double tapped.

Running stock Asus on 4.3.

Edit: Just found out it does nothing for gmail notifications.

Have you white listed gmail?
It did not reacted to Gmail notification when it arrived, or you just seen that there is Gmail notification in statusbar, but no heads-up?

Nothing shows up (HTC One M8 android 4.4.2 stock rooted rom)

Hi there,

I have aproximately same issue, i have granted permissions but nothing shows up. I must recognize i use dot view mods, may it generates a conflict, i haven't tried to disable it, it will be my next action.

But i tried what you said reboot system, and check if application process was running, then yes it was, but nothing to do, no notification appears.
Any idea?

Have you added necessary applications to whitelist? Also check filtering rules.

Please post screenshots of filtering rules and whitelist.
From what app you're expecting notifications?
Hi Dr.Alexander_Breen,

In fact i love testing new things, i'm not expecting something in particular it is only for test, but i add a screenshot of app tested in whitelist as you asked.

Thank you very much for your help
Regards

Will it work on my Sony Xperia with Android Jelly Bean ?

Yes, I have shortlisted Gmail. I am waiting for a mail to arrive and check if it still does not do anything when it arrives. I will post white list and filter rules later if gmail still fails.
