Just updated another build for Notification Peek Port, change log and apk can be found here: https://github.com/lzanita09/NotificationPeekPort/releases.

I'm not sure how long I can maintain this daily build, but I'll try. It's a lot of fun and I've learn a lot.

Hey I'm using the lg g2 and this doesn't wake the device..I still have to double tap and wake device.. Is this how it supposed to work?
Zhe Lu
 
The proper behavior of the app is identical to PA's notification peek, you don't need to manually wake up the device, unless it is on table or in your pocket.
 
+Zhe Lu then I guess it isn't working for me properly...I disabled another app in device administration that was handling that for me but tomorrow I will completely uninstall before reporting back.. If it still doesn't work I'll pastebin you a log cat
 
+Zhe Lu Any possibility of adding the feature where it automatically turns "peek" on when i pull it out of my pocket even without a notification?

 Great work. I find myself constantly switching between PA and Carbon because they both have features that I want. Now i can just stay with Carbon because of your hard work. :]

+Nelly Chang That would require the gyroscope sensor to be active all the time, which would probably drain battery. But it is a really nice thing to let it wake up automatically.

I think i have a problem. Notifications seems to stop. With the first notification everything is OK but after a while, i don't get any notification, except hangouts. I don't get G+ notification the whole day. I don't get my mails from gmail app.
What i do wrong?
Kos Kap
 
Just reboot and i get a ton of notifications!
Zhe Lu
 
+kenny layne Could you filter some of the logs by package name com.reindeercrafts.notificationpeek? The link you provided didn't have any log related to Notification Peek.
Zhe Lu
 
+Kostas Kap The app doesn't block notifications, which rom do you use?
Zhe Lu
 
+kenny layne No. Notification Peek can only be seen within 10 seconds upon incoming notifications, if you pick your phone up later, it won't wake the screen up.

I use stock rom 4.4.2 on nexus 5 and also stock kernel with gravity box.
I believe peek turn on screen whenever you pick up phone. Screen will stay on for 10 sec if we don't push screen. I really like peek but things are a little bit complicated. One similar app is acDisplay but this app turns screen on for only a period of time. Not that useful as peek.

Is there a reason why all updates have the same version?
Kos Kap
 
I think there are 3 versions and all of them are v 1.0. Am i correct?

+Kostas Kap Currently they all have the same version number. 

And the source code tells me that Peek only listen to the first 10 seconds after a notification arrives, if no interaction is detected, it'll release the partial wake lock and unregister sensor listeners, which means later interaction will not be detected.
 
+Zhe Lu , your peek apk port works just fine on my Nexus 5, running stock w/ GravityBox. Thanks! This is pretty cool. Have you posted it on XDA yet?
 
Thanks for the apk! Works perfectly on my Droid DNA running a modded stock Sense 5.5 KitKat ROM - EDIT - Sorry that was premature +Zhe Lu,  it doesn't seem to be waking up my phone on real notifications... The test notification works fine.
 
Carbon Rom has a feature that allows the screen to turn on when pulled out of the pocket (it can be disabled). I've been using it for about 2 and a half weeks not and haven't noticed any significant battery drain. Hopefully this idea is implemented into peek. I still get about 12 hours of battery with about 3 hours of SOT.

+Nelly Chang I'll test longer timeout myself first to see it affects battery. If it is not an issue I'll add it.
 
+Zhe Lu - Thanks man! This is fantastic, it works great on nexus 5! Peak is only reason I have plans to install PA, and now I have peak on stock android.
Now with peak, and xposed framework/ GravityBox my phone becomes something really special :) 
 
+Zhe Lu - You need to make PayPal donation link, so we can send you coffee or beer! 
 
+Zhe Lu does this work exactly like PA's pek? i want to use it but want to keep CM11
Zhe Lu
 
You can try :) I hope it is the same as PA's Peek.

On my new DooGee DG800 valencia, unboxed 2 days ago, I regularly get unexpected notification sounds, but when I look the screen is either black or just showing the clock. I have to press the on/off button, unlock it and open the notification bar, only to find out that there are no visible notifications. No missed calls, no 100% battery load or low battery, no received messages, not a clue what causes the sound. So I hoped that Notification Peek Port would solve it. But it doesn't. I installed it, clicked the Send Test Notification button, device turns off, stays black and silent, doesn't respond to my proximity, doesn't respond to movement. When I turn it on and unlock it, there is a small notification icon, that's all.
Zhe Lu
 
Notification Peek works only when the notification system works properly, I don't know if I understand you correctly, it sounds like you want to solve the system's notification issue with Peek. Note that Peek is built upon the system's notification, it just listens to the notification events and make corresponding actions.

For the test notification, sometimes it delays a little bit, sometimes 5 seconds, sometimes more. You can try sending yourself real notifications to see if it works properly.

Although there are some tiny issues that do make a difference between the expensive top brands and this DooGee (a legal note and the days on the agenda in Chinese, the message "location not available in China" in most apps that want to use location information[solved]) I believe that the notification system is working as programmed. I did receive a message that an upgrade was available, shortly after I placed the battery for the first time. Then I received a message that the battery was too low for the upgrade [duh..]. Both messages did not place an icon on the top bar. Probably two of the notification sounds later that day were to inform me that the battery was loaded and that the upgrade was installed. Perhaps these messages did appear readable on the screen, or would have been readable if I would have turned it on and unlocked it just in time. I was hoping that Notification Peek would be able to intercept such messages. But as far as I see it doesn't do anything.  I don't know how to send myself notifications. I do still have my old phone, but only one sim card.

+Maggy R Peek doesn't intercept notifications, it simply listen to the notifications and does its work. The notifications are still handled by the system.

In my case it really does nothing, as far as I can see. I tried with the check marks that were there when I installed it, tried with more checkmarks, with all options a checkmark. Each time I press the test button, the device turns off, I get no notification, no matter if I wait 5 seconds or 5 minutes before I pick up my phone. The screen stays black until I turn it on and unlock it. BTW, the DG800 came with Kitkat 4.4.2, the update was 4.4.3 build 20140507
