@forgin: The concept sounds nice, BUT... you may want to mention that the "desktop/computer" server you provide is a Java application and may not be appropriate or even available for all OS and configurations. Perhaps you intend it mostly for W*ndows users?

hmm you are right, i tested on windows and linux and works...may be in mac its not.
Anyway, thats just the server for pc, the App can run as a server on its own for android devices so it sends notifs from your smartphone to your tablet for example.

i will try to test in mac......also the pc program is not quite the best, i am still working on it, i suck in swing/java interface programs xD

Hey Forgin,

really like the idea of this! But it really neeeds a lot of improvments by now. So here are my first impression of ur new app

First the smallest but funniest one of my things to report:
- AnyWhereNotifications declares it self as Hovering Controls xD - on my Gtab in notificationbar is written "click to stop Hovering Controls" (HC never was installed)

- I Don't get sms and Playstore notifications on my Gtab

- Whatsapp works fine and also TitaniumBackup status is shown (e.g. "xx% of Titanium restore is done") only thing that is annoying in this case is that every time the % changes (for TB) ur app takes it as a new notification

- I Don't get any notification on PC, but that could be a firewall conflict, so if u can tell me wich ports and services ur app needs?

- Can we have a Blacklist? cause i get Gnow notifications over ur app, wich is really annoying because i have it on all my devices wich means i get the notifications twice (even the ones i dont wanna see at all like Fu***** Gnow weather)

It would probably run on a Mac that has a recent Java VM installed, but for many OS X users, Java (especially with networking access) is not an option. I suspect that you are aware of other apps that allow notifications to be mirrored from Android to other devices, and your upcoming browser interface may render the Java issue moot.

thx for the help. the desktop then would be for windows and linux users...and for the browser, i am thinking on a own webservice and a webpage where you can check your notifications even offline (only if you wish to save them) or just on live, other possibility is a browswer plugin, but never made one so i am lost in this case xD

I'm pretty sure some users with delusions of privacy will balk at the idea of having their "private" notifications bouncing around a mysterious server out there somewhere. Look at what Pushbullet does to mirror notifications using plugins/addons for common browsers. Great for Firefox/Chrome/Safari/WebKit but I have no idea if it's even feasible for evilMSIE. Since you have a *nix box, another approach would be to provide a simple(?) C/C++ public domain source and let people compile it for their favorite distro/OS. Whatever you do, don't let this distract you from Hovering Controls! ;)

Ok solved that problem for me. I have set my Firewall to "interactive mode" so it would ask me every time when a new Programm sends/recives data than i just waitet for the specific request. Now it works so far

but i still don't get sms notifications

I am thinking on stopping this development, as other apps like push bullet greatly do what i intend...so i see no point to re-invent the wheel like this. What do you think? this app needs lot of work to be good enough and i think its better to use the time in Hovering Controls and other projects incoming (the base idea of this project will be used in future ones.)

If anyone interested in continiuing this project, or even work together on this, i can share the source code, in none interested i will open source the code too.

opinions?

It would be interesting if your app is compatible with Android 4.2.2 because Pushbullet notification mirroring only works on devices with 4.3 and above. I can't update my HTC One X any further :(

i see your point...they could just enable it...i have not found any issue that make them not enabling it on lower android versions....these device just receive a notification or even send them (with the accessibility service they made), i think they will enable it when out of beta.

so, anyway, i see no point, i will focus on a fork of this project and in hovering controls.

    Soooo it's like "Desktop Notifications" ?

    Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

    more or less yes, it has some differences, first, there is no need for external server (i plan to add this as an option) and that you dont need to have a browser open, it has its own desktop jar executable.
    This also shares de notification with your other devices.

    So, i will work on this app this today and this weekend and release a new version at later sunday.
