  • Some may have noticed that there is a problem with the way Android handles notifications for most apps. The problem is mostly noticeable in the case of push notifications for apps such as Google Talk or Facebook Messenger. Until now nobody has been able to provide a fix.


    I’m going to tell you up front that his fix requires that your device is rooted. If it’s not the case then read no further. As for the rooted devices, the solution is quite simple. Let’s first cover the problem. In case of notifications on Android, you may (or may not) have noticed that there is a delay between the time the notification is sent and until it gets displayed on the device. This issue seems to manifest itself with every app, at least according to the developer. Also depending on the device and usage, it may be more noticeable on some devices then on others.

    The solution that developer andQlimax provides comes in the form of an app that gets the job done with ease. What it does is it will fix the delayed push notifications for all the apps installed on your system. As the developer explains, “the push notifications need a long running connection ( a tcp connection on the port 5228 ) between your phone and the google servers. What happen is that for some users the wifi router or the mobile carrier can close this connection after some time of inactivity ( tcp idle timeout ). Thats the reason why you will have no push notifications untill this connection get re-enstabilished by android.” – The solution: Install the app, grant it SuperUser permissions and set it to run on boot. It will get the job done. There are also some settings in terms on monitoring that you can adjust to see which one works better for you.


    Push Notifications Fixer has been tested by many users on XDA Developers until it has reached the Store, and it has proven its usefulness. Download it for free and without ads.
