Desktop Notifications


Desktop Notifications - Don't miss any notification on your phone or tablet.

This app allows you to receive Android notifications in your browser. Instead of checking notifications directly on your phone, you can check them on your desktop while surfing the web. And starting with version 2.0 you can also see your notifications on other Android devices, for example notifications from your phone on your tablet.

In order to use the app you also need to install the companion browser extension:

Google Chrome

We developed the app as a part of a research project at the Human Computer Interaction group ( at the University of Stuttgart (Germany). The app uses a secure communication channel to transfer the notifications. We collect anonymous data to analyze the user interaction with notifications. The content of notifications or information about you is NOT stored in any way. We make sure that your privacy and anonymity are preserved. The collected data is ONLY used for research purposes. It is assured that there will be no attempt to misuse the data or identify any user. By downloading and using this app you support and contribute in our research. We thank in advance for your understanding and support.

Based on the collected data we published a scientific paper that was presented in the CHI 2014 conference ( [PDF]).


We are very happy if you have feedback for us and/or report problems. But responding to comments in Google Play is very limited, so please send us a mail to instead or post in our Google+ Commmunity ( Thank you!


This app uses Accessibility services. The accessibility service is only used to access notifications on devices running Android 2.3 - 4.2. It allows users with disabilities to access Android notifications on other devices, for example when operating a smartphone touchscreen is not possible.
