MyNotify is an Accessibility service allowing for notifications on devices without hardware notification LEDs.

The list of apps being monitored is configurable; defaulting to GMail, Messaging, Phone and GTalk.

Notifications occur at a set interval for a duration of time; can be on a schedule; can be stopped if the device battery is too low or the device is in a bag.

Once the app is opened after the install, you should be taken to the Accessibility options:

MyNotify Service


You will see a warning from the Accessibility system.

This warning is generic, as it cannot tell what a service monitors, but MyNotify only monitors Notifications.

Click OK and then use the Back button to go back to the MyNotify settings screen.
