Annoyed that your phone doesn't light up when you receive a text? Just install this nifty little app! This tiny little program runs in the background and awakes your phone for a few seconds to alert you of a new text message.
Completely no frills, no ads, and no annoying pop-ups!
(Pop-ups now optional. Pro version lets you view the text message in native app with 1 click)
Now works with Hangouts, GO SMS, Handcent, and other 3rd party clients! If you are having trouble getting it to work with these clients, try uninstalling and re-installing THAT app (NOT THIS ONE). The way android handles notification priorities is based on which app was installed first. I apologize for the inconvenience, but there is nothing I can do on my end.
If you like the app, download the pro version here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dberm22.SMSWakeUpPro
More pop-up settings, messaging shortcut, no donate message, and a sense of pride for helping out a struggling small-time dev. I am also currently working on getting it to work with email and gchat.

Also, the length of time the screen is on may not be consistent between certain phones. There is nothing I can do to fix this, either - different phones have different limits imposed by manufacturers that I cannot override. I apologize that you cannot use my app to its full potential.

This app basically keep alive the push connection on your phone. It avoids the tcp connection timeout that can occurs on some wifi routers or on some mobile carriers.

● How does PNF solve this problem?
Every x minutes the app invokes an android activity that will send an heartbeat network packet on the push connection. Sending an heartbeat every 5 minutes should be enough to always keep the connection alive and all your push notifications will be instantly.
● How do I restore the default heartbeat interval value?
Android heartbeats values are not modified by this app, just uninstall this app.
The battery should not be much impacted over a day.
