Android notifications


1 min read

I've mentioned before that I hate testing mobile apps. One of the things I hate the most is testing push notifications.

But it turns out that Android does have one feature that makes this less hateful, if you know where to look. Here's where to look:

  • Long press on home screen
  • Select Widgets option
  • Long press Settings and place a Setting shortcut on home screen
  • Select Notifications Log

Now you've got a Notifications Log shortcut icon on your home screen showing you all the good stuff about your notifications that you previously had to pore through ADB logs to find, like the complete message and the intent.
