It logged the notifications that show up in my notification bar, but I'm trying to track down a "phantom" notification. The sound plays 3 times (usually once, pause two more, sometimes all 3 at once), but nothing shows up in my notifications. I saw a suggestion to turn off NFC, but it's already off. If this app had been able to log what makes the chime play, 5 stars. Unfortunately, I can already see what's in the notification bar, but it does a great job logging those.

Hi Laura, You could try enabling "Log ongoing" in the Notification Log settings. This will make Notification Log record every single notification update, e.g., every % update for downloads. Maybe this will help you tracking down the noisy notification. Best of luck!

Good app, have it installed on my phone in case I ever need to check something. Do you have any plans to add search by app, some apps have a lot of notifications so it can be hard to find older notifications from other apps.

I gave it a 2 star because when I try to reload the notification log, nothing happens in the log, I can't see the recent notifications and I have to clear the app's data just to work again or to see the recent notifications. I am using xiaomi device. Any tips?

Xiaomi/Redmi devices are known to aggressively terminate background services such as the one used by Notification Log. Some devices have multiple settings that need to be changed for background services to run successfully. This behavior breaks many Android apps and app developers can't do anything about it.
