Why can't your phone's silent mode be smart enough to silence everything you don't want to hear but still alert you to things you need to?
It's time to take control: Incoming Message Alert is like having your own personal assistant - You can silence your phone with confidence knowing that you will still get notified of any important or urgent communications.
At its core Incoming Message Alert is an incredibly powerful yet simple message filtering program. You select certain incoming communications, such as texts, emails or phone calls, and then setup "filters" to apply to them - for example communications from particular contacts or phone numbers, or certain words in an email's subject or body. If the filter matches, an alert will be triggered: you can choose to be notified by an audible alarm or simply by the vibration of your phone.
Filters can be:
- simple (a list of things to look for)
- complex (advance mode allows for creating and/or relationships, e.g. From this contact AND with this subject);
- positive (message must contain "this")
- negative (but the message must not contain "that").
Combining all these elements you can create incredibly fine tuned parameters to trigger an alert.
The uses for this are endless: Silence your phone at night but have an audio alarm wake you up for that important email, text, or call. Sit in a movie, concert, or play and only have your phone vibrate for emergency communications. Put your phone away at work but have it alarm if your children call. The only limit is your creativity!
Here is what the program does:
- Choose what to filter: texts, phone calls, or email accounts (or all three)
- Filter incoming messages on different fields: From, Subject, Body, or messages from a particular Contact.
- Create schedules so filters only apply at certain times of the day
- Positive and negative filters: All messages containing some particular content, but not those containing other content.
(For example, all messages coming from "John", but not those with "Project X" in the subject)
- Advanced filter mode allowing for multiple condition filters: Now you can chain filters together with And/Or logic to create powerful groupings of tests on multiple fields. NOTE: Advanced Filter mode must be enabled in the settings screen.
(For example, all messages from "John" AND that also have a subject of "Project X" OR all messages from "George")
- Designed and coded with a minimalist philosophy: do the most work with the least impact on device resources. You have control over the frequency emails are checked (if at all) and routines are optimized to be as efficient as possible.
- Security and privacy are important: here is an explanation of the permissions required by the application:
(RECEIVE_SMS) Your Messages: needed to filter the text of incoming SMS messages
(INTERNET, ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE) Network Communication: needed to access email messages
(READ_CONTACTS) Personal Information: needed to determine if the incoming text/call/or email is from a particular contact you select
(READ_PHONE_STATE) Phone Calls: needed to filter incoming calls
(WAKE_LOCK) System Tools: needed to prevent the phone from sleeping while we filter new messages
(VIBRATE) Hardware Controls: needed to make the phone vibrate
(GET_ACCOUNTS) Your Accounts: needed to list the email accounts available for you to check

To read new text message, without a single touch of the screen or a button.
No need to press a button,
No need to unlock the phone typing pin code or swiping symbols,
No need to drag down notification bar,
No need to click messaging apps or any notifications.
The app uses the G-sensor to determine actual tilt of the phone and if is in a preset position, turns the screen on, unlocks the phone and displays new text message (if any). The app displays only one message at a time (the most recent unread message).
If there is no new text messages the app turns on the screen and unlocks it only. You can use it to display any other app or screen previously left opened. You can even disable the feature to display new text message after automated turn on.
Unlocking the phone by tilt only is potentially unsafe. From that reason the app is able to work in selected areas only (using Wi-Fi networks). You can define which Wi-Fi network is allowed and/or which is denied. So, the app may work only in a specified location or except specified location.
Aside of the G-sensor, the app can use proximity sensor to prevent from accidental unlocks (i.e. while the phone is in a pocket)
Unlock position is fully configurable as long as the tolerance of that position.
To perform successful unlock, the phone must be IN the unlock position for at least half second, and its previous position should be OTHER than the unlock position for at least half second. If proximity sensor is in use, the phone can not be covered during unlocking by tilt. Additionally, the currently used Wi-Fi network cannot be denied.
The proximity sensor can be used also to lock the screen back after successful unlock (touchless lock option). This feature allows you to pull the phone out of pocket, read new text message (or watch other apps) then push the phone back to pocket. All without a single touch of the screen or button, using one hand only!
New - "Power efficient - continuous mode" added in version 1.4. Read more bellow.
Because of battery lifetime impact the app is armed only for a given time from the last phone activity. This time is called "Sensors standby time" and is restored every time you turn screen off pressing power button manually or receiving a text message.
If your last activity with the phone (or last text message) was 2 hours ago, and the "Sensors standby time" is set to 1 hour only, the app will NOT be able to turn the screen on and unlock it because sensors are no longer powered and your phone is in a sleep mode saving battery lifetime.
The app is a background service which must be started by the user. It will not start itself (i.e. when rebooting the phone)
Occasionally you may experience some unwanted screen locks (for example when pressing HOME button after successful unlock). This is because 3rd party application can not perform full unlock of the phone programmatically (as you can do manually, swiping symbol or typing pin code).
The differences between full and free version are:
- Free version works for 12 hours then disable the Tilt & Read service and displays "Purchase" dialog. The service can be re-enabled easily and the app can work for another 12 hours. There are no limitations in the number of times the service was re-enabled but purchasing full version is strongly recommended.
- Full version requires license, if not licensed then works as free version. Full version do not display any "purchase" buttons, "free" labels and can work indefinitely.
The "Power efficient - continuous mode" is available at the end of "Standby time" scale. It allows you to use the app 24/7 with a minimal impact to the battery lifetime!
