brings iOS like QuickReplies for notifications to Android.
will disable Heads-up notifications on your Lollipop phone.
Floatify is by far the most customizable option I have come across. It even plays nicely with the existing lockscreen (the only other better option being completely removing the oem lockscreen), but it's pretty much the best option you'll get.
Custom lockscreens will always be a security vulnerability because they aren't integrated into the system like the oem rom's lockscreen. For example: you can disable any non-stock apps by booting into safe mode: lockscreen apps are not an exception; and if you disabled your password, then your phone would be completely open to anybody who picked it up.
This is an app I use. You can use different themes for different notifications. I also disabled stock heads up and rely on floatify heads up. Been working flawlessly for the last few months.
I started using Floatify, which gives me quick reply on all messaging apps. I like it better than the built-in quick reply on hangouts, too.
You can display your notifications on your current lockscreen using Floatify.
I haven't used it in a while so you might have to fool with the settings to get it right.
Till Nougat, it's mostly up to the app dev to implement if you can do quick reply.
For now try floatify, and tinker with it. You can do ios style if you miss that
I miss KitKats "ticker" for this
This exist, but not as good
You can't right out of the box :/ but its Android so technically its possible.
One example, not a pretty one, would be finding a lockscreen replacement that allows widgets since there is a notes widget.
Used to be a feature in Android but I guess its been scrapped. Currently you can only pin to the AOD.
Idk if anyone has but figuring out a way to add custom FaceWidgets, maybe then figure out a way to add widgets (the way it went with reverse engineering how OneUI themes are compiled or how apps have managed to overlay the AOD)?
I havent tried it out but I found this in the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.floatify&referrer=utm_source%3Dreddit-playstorelinks__bot
An alternative would be editing your lockscreen shortcuts(either default or via GoodLocks LockStar module) to open the notes app but thats a subpar substitute.
This is stated here (but I have not tried):
• Message filter settings
And here it seems there is no, but in the sense of a close application, maybe there is a similar functionality filtering notifications ...:
No, the lock screen is made thanks to Floatify and the to-do widget I have there is Stuff.
You could try looking for a notification app instead of a music player. I've been using Floatify for a number of years, and would recommend checking it out.
Theres tons of options for how notifications are handled, and its easy to get overwhelmed with the settings. I am most certain you can set it so any app with a notification will show a heard up when the information (like track name) changes.
While hihoheha appears to have misunderstood /u/EvoBrah , he's right that you can get an app to customize how the notifications work. One that I know is highly customizable is Floatify. Makes your notifications actionable in pretty much any way you can imagine. Can be a little on the overwhelming side for settings.
In case it helps, I installed Floatify and, with a little bit of configuration, all your notification gripes will be gone. Results in a stock notification experience with a number of optional enhancements.
You mean quick reply from the notification? Or through a pop-up?
If you mean the notification one, as far as I know Android only supports quick reply from 7.0 onwards, and Telegram has supported it even from the moment the first N preview was released (I was surprised to see it working right after I enrolled my device in the beta).
Some apps have implemented a proprietary solution to work on earlier versions, but the official implementation came in Android 7.
Alternatively, you have apps like Floatify which implement it manually for any app you want.
Without the use of third party apps like:
its not possible for all apps to show a Heads-Up Notification.
This is actually up to the developer and it requires them to designate that their notification is of priority MAX or HIGH.
So if Google made Inbox show notifications at Priority Normal or etc, it won't show. This is the same for all other apps.
If you want to add Heads-Up Notification support for unsupported apps, you'll have to look into some 3rd party apps like the one I linked.
You appear to be looking for a solution, so I'll offer the one that I'm using. Try Floatify. It gives you incredibly granular controls of all of your notifications (both lockscreen and peeking). It can honestly be a little overwhelming with all of the settings available to you, but the app does have options for dumbing down and simplifying the settings.
Anyway, you can specifically set how much space your lockscreen notifications take up. Try it out if you're interested, and if you have any questions about it, let me know. I've gone through the settings menu a bunch of times over the past couple years as the app has evolved.
Again, this app can do way more than what you're asking for, but it can also handle what you're asking for.
You can do as /u/rdearth53 said and find a different texting app like Textra, or if you prefer the stock SMS app and/or want similar functionality with other messages, you can get something like Floatify. Floatify makes a lot of things possible with your notifications, one of which is waking your screen when something comes in.
PSA: This is just the key. You need to download the actual app separately: [link]
The developer seems very active on XDA. The latest version was released last week. I just bought it because of this fact.
This app adds quick reply for any messaging app. It takes a while to set up correctly (I disabled every app except Telegram/Hangouts, and disabled on the lock screen) but once you set it up you have quick reply for those apps.
Download Floatify and it will give you peek for all apps whenever they have a notification. It even has quick reply for whatsapp and text messages.
I use Floatify for this feature. You have to spend some time setting it up, the options are all over the place and confusing but now that it's set up, I have quick reply for my texts, hangouts and telegram messages in the style of iOS.
Why should I use this instead of Floatify?
Floatify will let you quick reply when you have the Android Wear app installed. I use it all the time with no issues.
Use this I disabled it for every app except for telegram. But there is your quick reply.
This gives you quick reply with hangouts
[link] IOS like reply on many apps not just SMS ,it's awesome and is free with upgrade option.
Best you can do is something like Floatify until Google decides years down the road to include native quick replies.
Traditionally custom roms don't mess with carrier coverage, but you'll lose any warranty they were providing. ~~You can find the model number in settings > about phone. Search that in XDA and see if you can get any results.~~
So I did some research and it seems like your phone is a member of rare species. Unfortunately there are no guides on XDA about roms for your phone, but there are some on sketchy websites. To post in XDA, go to https://forum.xda-developers.com/register.php , create an account, then go to https://forum.xda-developers.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=256 .
A fix you can try is going to settings > app manager > dabrowser > draw over other apps > false. you can also try disabling the keyguard completely and try an alternative like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.floatify ( if unavaliable https://apkpure.com/floatify-lockscreen/com.jamworks.floatify ). Also try an adblock like https://android.gadgethacks.com/how-to/block-ads-all-your-android-apps-without-root-extra-battery-drain-0174614/ . However in the long term I would suggest saving up for a cheap phone from a real brand.
That's a "feature" which can be toggled off. I use Floatify strictly for notifications
I'm a fan of Floatify - Quick Replies available in the Play store here.
It allows you to fully customize notifications.
I've got great notifications with floatify, but AFAIK, it works till android 7 nougat, check it out
Something like this, so your screen is always on, but also not unlocked (aka, making calls):
try floatify ! [link]
Not sure I fully understand what it is you are after but take a look at Floatify.
Not sure if this is gonna work on your phone Floatify
Floatify does this really well:
check out floatify too, it wasn't for me but i think it can do heads up notifications like you want.
Turns out it was a conflict with Floatify! Will have to contact developer and see if there's a fix.
Do you mean this? [link]
Floatify already did this. A multi billion dollar company should be able to implement this stuff before a random guy does. Nice to see it nevertheless.
