Glimpse Notifications shines over its competitors. For example, without being made a device administrator, Heads-up Notifications struggled with turning off the display. This meant, each time Heads-up Notifications locked/dimmed the screen after a notification, the fingerprint unlock option was disabled (requiring me to enter the pin manually). Without any additional privileges, Glimpse Notifications dims the screen perfectly after notifications. Even better? It's 100% free to use!
This seems to be the go-to choice for getting notifications to show up on the lock screen. It works exactly as described. The best part in my opinion is the ability to white-list which app notifications you receive. So you can limit it to your email, text, and whatever else you find important, and leave out whatever games and other junk that you don't want to be bothered about.
I've been using this app from the very first day, since I bought Galaxy S7. The only problem I have is it keeps on waking after every few seconds/minutes, when there are pending notifications. Something, like trying to remind me, however when I check the settings within the app its switched off. I would upgrade my rating to 5 star once I have some resolution to this problem.
Perfect app. Does the job and does it well. I had a different app for the longest time but I was SOOO fed up with the screen randomly popping on for no reason. Went to the store and found this one. No random turn on's, just perfect notifications. Still stunned this isn't a standard option but luckily awesome people exist that can make apps for us! Love this app!
Have a Note8 and this only works for a short time after a reboot then fails to light up the lock screen so it basically doesn't work 99% of the time. Great potential since this somehow isn't a default feature of the OS, but doesn't work yet for Note8.
It's simple and it works. Edit: the setting is gone whenever I reboot the phone so I'll have to turn it back on. It'd be great if you could fix this. Because sometimes I forget to turn on glimpse after I restart my phone and I'll miss some notifications. Edit: now it doesn't work at all.
