KitKat 4.4 :: Notifications Don't Show Unless App Is Active?

Dec 17, 2013

I'm not getting any notifications (eg. email, facebook, whatsapp, ... ) unless the app is currently active. I opened whatsapp and immediately got the notification for a five hour old message.

This applies to other apps as well.

Is there any way I can make the notifications pop up even if the app is not running?

I'm using a Nexus 4 with Android 4.4.2

KitKat 4.4 :: Setting Up Duplicate Email / Active Sync Accounts On Android 4.4?

Jan 16, 2014

Due to circumstances at my work , I cannot access the internal network outside.

Therefore I have to use exchange active sync to sync my work calendar whilst I am at work.

To access emails outside of work with have a email route setup and a external email host.

The short is I have to add 2 accounts under the same email address. One which will connect to the work network locally over wifi and the other that will just allow me to view work emails externally.

This has worked fine previously but since my phone has been updated to 4.4 kitkat when adding the second account it pops up with a error message about duplicate accounts.

How can i bypass this message and add the second account?

KitKat 4.4 :: Unable To See Desktop Bookmarks In Android Chrome Browser Unless Sync Active

Feb 27, 2014

normally I have sync turned off to prolong battery life but it also removes the capability to see the desktop bookmarks while in Android's Chrome browser. I thought the bookmarks were stored locally and then synced back when sync turned on.

To see desktop bookmarks I have to flip the sync on do my thing and then flip it back off when I'm done browsing.

KitKat 4.4 :: (Chrome Browser) Make Tabs Continue Loading When Not Active Window?

Apr 11, 2014

I'd like to make my browser continue loading homepages, even when I'm not starring at the respective tab. Hardware-wise this should be entirely possible with a Quad-Core CPU.

Right now, there is no root or custom ROM on my device which I'm willing to change in favor of the above improvement.

edit: 4.4.2 OS installed

Android :: Check Which Notifications Are Active In Status Bar In Droid Dev?

Sep 2, 2010

I have made an app that sets notifications in the drop-down status bar of Android phones. However, there is a bug in my code (sometimes the notifications are set, sometimes they are not). I want to be able TO CHECK (in the code) IF THE NOTIFICATION IS VISIBLE TO THE USER. (i.e. can the user see the notification in the status bar?).

How can I do this?

KitKat 4.4 :: No More MMS Notifications?

Feb 23, 2014

I used to get notified whenever I received an MMS with data turned off.I could tell its an MMS but I could not read it.In order to read it I would have to turn on my data and the message would show up( whatever it was picture or group message or a High priority system alert from a server from my office) Now 2 weeks ago I dont know what changed but this stopped happening.

So I turned on my data one day and I started receiving all these MMS messages that were like a week old.(one of them was an alert from my office) which means i was not getting any MMS notifications.and in order to get MMS notifications I would always need to keep my data on.

How do i get my old setup back which I used to get notified whenever I received an MMS with data turned off.and In order to read it I would have to turn on my data and the message would show up.

Im on family mobile FYI. Im using stock Nexus 4 ROM. No Root.Im using GO SMS PRO & switched to CHOMPSMS.

KitKat 4.4 :: Play Store Notifications

May 12, 2014

I've recently just switched over to Android after 5 years with Windows mobile & windows phone. Currently using the Sony Xperia Z1 compact on KitKat, and all is going great so far. But just one issue I am having with notifications from the play store. I have set apps to not auto-update themselves, but have chosen to be notified about updates in the system tray. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be receiving these notifications, even though when i click on 'my apps', I see several need updated.

Do you have to wait a certain amount of time before the system notifies you of these updates?

KitKat 4.4 :: Audio Notifications From Stock Email App

Apr 4, 2014

I'm running KitKat (4.4.2) on a MotoX, and I use the stock Email app for a work account. When the phone is locked with all notifications cleared, the first new email to arrives causes the notification sound to play- but no additional sounds play when more new emails arrive if I don't unlock the phone and clear the first one. Is this normal behavior for this app now? I would really like to find a way to get an audible alert for all new Emails like I used to get on my old Android 2.X phone.

New to Android moving from the iProduct line of goods. What I can add to the locked home screen to display: Missed call, Text received, Email received. I think I need to add a widget or do I add an app which automatically adds any widget available on the widget menu?

KitKat 4.4 :: Notifications Interrupting Audio Playback?

Apr 3, 2014

On Android 4.3, and playing any type of media such as MP3 or movies, and a text message, e-mail, or any other type of messages is received, unless the phone is actually muted the audio playback is interrupted with a notification. Has that been addressed in KitKat?

I'd like the option to dis-able audio notifications (blinking LED or vibrate is preferred) so the audio experience isn't interrupted.

Dec 5, 2013

I have a Virgin Mobile Galaxy S3 that just got the 4.4 update this morning. Afterwards it had to redownload/update nearly every app on the device as well as all my SNES and Playsation ROMs which I though was odd.

Now all the notifications for thos downloads will not go away. I've cleared them all at once, I've cleared them all individually. When I turn the screen off and then turn it back on an dunlock the phone all those notifications are back in the notification bar.

KitKat 4.4 :: Download Complete Notifications Keep Displaying After 4.4 Update

Dec 2, 2013

I was prompted to update to Kit Kat on my Samsung Galaxy S3 this morning. The updated downloaded & installed without any issues - but now the same 3 notifications are constantly displayed on my phone. If I clear, they come back. Same for when I re-boot my phone:

01-Take-A-Chance.mp3
Download complete

ioOX40xgzyOil.gif
Download complete

0zHzHEe.gif
Download complete

It has only happened since this update and it's getting very irritating having these display permanently and come back seconds after I clear each time.

KitKat 4.4 :: Facebook Notifications Causing Significant Battery Drain?

Jan 29, 2014

Now, when it comes to the official Android Facebook application I've been using it on my Nexus 5 and my previous Galaxy S2. I use to always try and remember to place it in the background to minimise battery drain (I know this isn't perfect, but it did make a difference battery wise, because if I leave it in the foreground, the battery would drain).

Recently I've been running a number of tests and I have identified whenever I receive a Facebook notification, battery drain dramatically increases (e.g. over 10% in an hour with no use (sitting idle (black screen) and locked). If I don't get Facebook notifications, then the battery life is solid and last for ages.

So I tried: Disabling all Facebook notifications. I've then tested a number of times... I get a friend to send me a Facebook private message (they then SMS me to let me know when they send the Facebook message). My phone does NOT generate a Facebook notification message, BUT I notice the dramatic battery drain kicks in as described above (phone gets very warm as well) when they send the Facebook notification.

* I then tried ending the Facebook task. This does nothing. The dramatic battery drain pattern continues.

* If I turn the phone on and off, it stops the battery drain.

* I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Facebook. No difference, problem still occurs.

* I'm using the latest Facebook application as at 30/01/14.

I know the advice is to uninstall Facebook, but I know I could also install Greenify, but I don't want to root my phone (yet) (and the non-rooted feature is something you need to remember to do - knowing me I will forget to force stop)).

There was something similar on Facebook Messenger (which I don't have installed) (I just found a battery-draining bug in the Facebook Messenger standalone app, and how to report it at Facebook who can fix it. : Android)

KitKat 4.4 :: How To Stop Annoying Notifications (Can't Sign Into Yahoo Mail)

Dec 10, 2013

Whenever I leave a wifi zone and the phone switches to mobile data I get annoying notification messages/bong from the stock email app that it "can't sign in to Yahoo mail". If I follow the notification it says the username/password is wrong which is obviously crap because it has no trouble getting mail over wifi.

Motorola Droid X :: Yahoo Notifications Not Being Displayed When Receive Email / Show It Up?

Nov 6, 2010

Anyone noticing their Yahoo notification not showing up in the bar when they receive email? I get the sound, but there is no icon displayed in the bar. When I pull the bar down, I see the message title, but the icon does not appear.

Also, I've noticed on the Messaging app, that the Yahoo icon is missing the purple Y. The icon is just a generic looking envelope. Something has changed with the account. Battery pulls or logging in or out of the account have not helped either.

Android :: Custom Notifications - Assign Different Notifications To Emails Vs Texts Vs Missed Calls

Jun 21, 2010

My only complaint about the Droid is the seeming lack of options for notifications.

Is there a way, or an app, that would allow you to assign different notifications to emails vs texts vs missed calls?

Also, does anyone know if there's a way to set the phone to re-notify you periodically if you have a notification that has not been looked at? I tend to leave my phone sitting on my desk at work and would like it to let me know if I missed a call or text while I was away from my desk.

Ideally I'd like to silence email notifications, but have text and missed call notifications with unique ring tones for each, and I'd like the phone to renotify me every 10 minutes or so if I have a text or missed call waiting for me.
