SMSAwake is a 4 star Android application by Andrew Schwimmer. He is also responsible for other quality apps like SaveMMS and HideNSeek ( you know you all have that one 😉 ). SMSAwake is not a program that you run. Meaning you just download and install it and it does it’s thing. That thing being, when you receive an SMS message, the app will cause your phone’s screen to light up for 5 seconds.
This app can be very handy if you are running your phone in silent mode, you have trouble hearing your notifications or when your phone is charging. It’s compatible with every version of Android and has never force closed on me. It’s a tiny app at 7.23kb so it doesn’t take up much space. It’s simple and FREE and does exactly what it says it does.
Download it from the Android Market. You won’t regret it. 😉 Sheesh, all I need is a fresh manicure, a short dress, heels and some porcelain veneers and I could be a Price Is Right girl…
(thank you david1171 for the app suggestion)
