Fixed no sound tone option

This application seems to be unnecessary with SailfishOS 2, as SFOS2 has everything in place and working with regard to notifications from Android apps. It may even disturb SFOS2's built-in notification mechanism for Android apps.
For some Android apps (as of SailfishOS 2.0: e.g. K9-Mail, Conversations, Threema, TextSecure) a notifier entry is missing, which can be easily added, see

For me too, that seems KO

But I never tested before with application so i don't know if it's the android application that don't work with that or this sailfish release...

I detect strange behavior with skype notification: if phone rebooted (or Android restart) notifications from skype normal appear on notification screen, if skype has been launched at least once and then closed, notification disappear until reboot phone or restart Android, 

Thank and best regards, Alex.

Great app, but I wish it would have an option to (temporarily) stop.

And I believe it would be perfect if it showed the notification from a running app on the foreground with no sound (i.e. mute notification when running). When I'm using an app its notification sound can be annoying – imagine I'm listening to voice messages and it keeps notifying me for the new messages.

It's not possible, application know nothing about android applications which sending notifications.

It seems to worki with Skype very sporadically, and some other apps that I use don't work at all (I did whitelist them).

Thank you for this app. I use Telegram with pleasure (much better than Whatsapp) on my Jolla and now I hear and see the messages inmediately.

Coderus, first of all thanks for your work, I think you are doing great.

Sometime I notice that the notification takes a long time to come up, sometimes never does.

I'm not sure if this is normal, is a bug o maybe the phone connection is sleeping, so the message is never precessed by the phone.

Best regards

With BL/WL and categories this is probably one of the most useful things for actual SailOS. :)
Have you plan to let translate this and other your things? By Transifex as Mitakuuluu was?

coderus's picture

There is nothing to translate i think.

MixRadio download offline playlist, cause same problem than Aptoide.

coderus's picture

okay, so? :)

hey! now you can preinstall it in next update blacklist :D  Good job Coderus! Jolla are trying to do this in over one year without success.

As CODeRUS is only posting ironic answers to everyone who has this looping problem with the android apps he uses regularly - could anyone of the developers around here implement a clone with some whitelist/blacklist logic or so, with which I can restrict the app's action to IM apps? Otherwise it is really bad usability when starting some of those problematic apps.

So now I am a complete dumb ass. I am happy whitelist feature is on your list already. I apologize for commenting before searching support thread.

Great application, thanks!

For some reason after installation the pictures from gallery do not appear in whatsapp i.e. not able to send photos from gallery. Could it be this application or something else?

coderus's picture

of course no :D

Thanks CodeRUS for this app!

Android applications don't create notifications in Sailfish unless they "running" minimized to Home (i.e.: swipe from outside screen until you see application cover on your Home screen). Mentioned e.g. here: (towards end).

To undersand when Android apps/processes are running and when not, install Crest from Jolla Store, observe processes before & after closing an Android app.
