MobileNotifier Beta5 Released with MobileReply and More

We broke the news about the ‘connection’ between the departure of Peter Hajas from his MobileNotifier project and his possible move to Apple. To celebrate before his leave Peter and his team have released MobileNotifier Beta5, the final release.

Here is what’s new:

– MobileReply. Reply to text messages while within other applications! It works like magic!


– Full message text! Read everything in the alert, not just the first few words.
– Redesigned minimalist alert display!
– A brand new AlertDashboard, inspired by our amazing lockscreen view!


– Dismiss alerts right from the popup! Hate going into the dashboard to remove alerts you’ve just archived? Simply hit the “X” in the popup to dismiss them for good!
– Recall the most recent alert easily with an Activator action. Then use MobileReply to reply to it!
– Thanks to work by Marc Easen, MobileNotifier now supports calendar invitation alerts!
– Way way faster.

What’s been fixed?
– Lockscreen no longer displays if you have it set to “off”
– Various small bugfixes.
– Did I mention way way faster?
You’ll need to reconfigure your Activator actions for MobileNotifier.

I just installed this new release and it’s much more refined than before. The ability to reply right within the notification brings BiteSMS-like functionality. The alert display has become much less intrusive too. Well done.

Here’s a video of Peter giving a demo:

    I uninstalled it yesterday because I found Tlert to be more convenient (back when I was running beta 4). I think I’ll reinstall it again.

  • Yeah, give it another go. I did. This build is much better than before.

    Definitely looks a lot better. One thing that always turned me off was the look and feel of it. I’ll have to give it another try since just watching a video won’t be able to do it justice.

  • I’d like to see an option in the future to select different sounds for the tone alert.

     Just make your own. There’s tons of guides on how to do it. I haven’t used stock sounds on my phone since the 3GS. It’s stupid how Apple doesn’t let you make your own..

    I have to say, after using it a bit, it’s definitely improved. The UI is a lot more streamlined and less intrusive. Really enjoy it now unlike before. 🙂
