Echo Notification Lockscreen App Makes Notifications Simple Again
The Echo Notification Lockscreen app is an useful way to simplify the whole notification experience on your Android device. Once the app is installed and activated you’ll have a lockscreen that looks simple and is simple to use.
The software replaces the lockscreen with a minimalistic experience and a very nice organization of notifications. The app is available for free in the Play Store and there’s no hidden cost or other purchases. It also works on most Android devices and it’s developed by DoubleLabs, a company that doesn’t have other Android hit apps out there. Usually, the whole notification situation is overwhelming nowadays, especially if you sleep for a few hours or watch a movie and then return to your phone.
There are entire rows of Gmail, Twitter and Facebook updates, not to mention the games that got away and notify you. Echo fixes all of that by prioritizing the apps depending on a few factors. There’s a Priority section for the most important stuff, but there are also categories for Work and Social. Echo lights up the screen for important notifications, that fit in the Priority category and makes the stress lighter on the user.
The app tries to learn your habits and prioritize the notifications you open most often. The app is in beta for now, so new features are expected in the future. Each category mentioned above works like a drop down menu showing individual notifications that can be dismissed one by one or in bulk. The cool thing is that you can also swipe a notification out of the way with the option to bring it back later.
