A very simple app that turns your screen on for a specified period time when you get a notification. Optionally if your device is in your pocket or the proximity sensor is otherwise covered, the screen will not turn on.
Screen Notifications is open source (<a href="https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.google.com/url?q%3Dhttps://github.com/lkorth/screen-notifications%26sa%3DD%26usg%3DAFQjCNFCtSo9sknfqnXpaEpstnl4fnBxYw&sa=D&usg=AFQjCNGMUQPPaa-8llJAgmxgATyEhiVOCA" target="_blank">https://github.com/lkorth/screen-notifications</a>).

If you have enabled Screen Notifications as a Device Admin so the screen will turn off after a notification, in order to uninstall Screen Notifications you will need to first open the app and uncheck the Device Admin option. Once this is done you will be able to uninstall it.

There is a bug in the HTC lockscreen that will cause the shortcuts to break and the lockscreen to be dismissed without unlocking. The affects all apps that use the accessibility service (Lightflow, Pebble, etc)
