    "My default phone notifications was not doing the job. This pretty much force me to go out into the market to try to find something better. This free app was easy to use, very convenient, and overall much better than the default . It keeps everything organized and make sure I see the most important updates right away."

    "Notify seemed like it would be pretty useful; it gives notifications for everything on my phone and displays them on my home screen. But, to be honest, I'm not really a fan of the way it looks, and it doesn't do that much more outside of what my notification bar does. Getting at my notification bar only takes one extra swipe, so this isn't really saving me that much time, and it doesn't even really look that great while doing it. Not a huge fan."

    Hi Locker
    This app is a lock screen that was developed based on the mix of classical “lock screen” on the older versions of Android, with the modern of Android Lollipop, include notification system on lock screen, and Material design style.

    "From my own prospective it's not a bad app. However I will acknowledge that this will be solely based on how your style is. This is a pretty set in stone appearance and you'll either like or love it! However, from a technical standpoint it's solid."

    This app allows you to receive all of your notifications even when your screen is off. When you receive a new email/text message, the display will discreetly light up to let you know. You don't need to unlock the device.

    "For those who have problems with turning their phone off and still wanting to know what’s going on, this is a useful app. I don’t want your phone interrupting a meeting, or lighting up next to my boss, but those subtle apps that just tell me something came in can drive me crazy. There’s a message there, but what? A dental reminder or that important message about my dinner date? This allowed me to have my phone off while being discreetly notified of incoming messages, and, by selecting which messages I want to be notified with, I could say yes to dinner and no to the dentist.

    "The app can be useful but it's not necessary. It combines a lot of the phone features one already has into one widget. It can be useful in that regard. I like that i can see unread mail, the local weather, calendar appointments etc but it's not something that I definitely need. As it stands now, it's no longer being maintained so any bugs that you may find, wont' be fixed and any security lapses won't be fixed either."

    "This app was exactly what I needed for my phone. I love that I could see notifications from all of my apps, whereas with my default Android lock screen, I could only see certain notifications. Everything is organized, and I find I spend less time trying to stay updated."
