Maybe you know this situation: Your phones lays on your desk, you're in the kitchen and you get called. You do not hear your ring and when you come back to your desk, you don't notice that you were called because your device has no notification LED (and you're not using NoLED)...

Therefore I made another small app, called "Vibration Notifier" (name is not final) which does the following:

When you have a missed call or an unread SMS, the app keeps vibrating every X minutes for Y times or until you turn on the display of your device.​

It supports missed calls, SMS, GMail and any other app which puts a notification in the status bar once a new event occurs (like WhatsApp, Google Voice, etc.)

I think the attached screenshot describe the intention of the app pretty good :)

App is now available throught the Android Market: Vibration Notifier

Current beta release: ---

This is a great idea for an app. I'll install it once it's in the market!

Also to people talking about battery use, vibrating uses hardly any battery at all. It is not going to be noticeable.

I have a tasker task that does something somewhat simmilar... when my battery level drops below 15%, my phone starts vibrating once every minute. It's a subtle "charge me!!!" hint.

I think this is a great idea even for the people that have LEDs like me. However, I don't think the limitation to calls, sms and gmail is a good idea. You should find a way of making all the notifications vibrate every x minutes or adding a lot more to your app. For example Whatsapp (I installed your app today but noticed it was only for certain notifications so uninstalled it :( ) and let's say Twitter, Facebook... all this stuff.

Looking forward to a more complete version of this!! :)

Nice one the thing I miss most on my Samsung is the notification light from most my previous phones. Will give this a go.

sounds like a good idea to me, but i wont install it as long as there are no "silent hours" to set in the settings or an option to enable/disable this using tasker as i dont want to have my phone vibrating on my nightdesk when sleeping ;-)

so see this as a feature request...

My Samsung Galaxy S2 vibrates fine now =) but if I set it to 2 minutes, it takes four minutes pause between the vibrations :rolleyes:


The is one of the best app ever ! THX !

Works great on my Atrix! Thanks! I have the LED but find the app useful in case my phone is in my pocket and I dont hear/feel it the first time. :)

Great app, but 1 minute set is just under 3 minutes realtime. I seen you uploaded a new version, I got the previous one. It's running on a motorola Defy with 2.2.

Your notification toggles app is a winner too!
