SMSNotify is an application that will allow your iPhone to vibrate when you have a missed text message or a new voicemail. This is actually not a new application, it is also available via Installer for firmware 1.1.4 and below. However, the app has changed slightly. In SMSNotify 2.0, if you have a missed text, your iPhone will vibrate three times and if you have a new voicemail, your iPhone will vibrate two times. However, this only works if your iPhone is in sleep mode (or lock mode). If your iPhone is plugged in or not in sleep mode, the app will not make your iPhone vibrate. ‘
As cool as this application is…which it is, Apple’s stock notifications just don’t cut it…it does not work for me. I tested both the SMS and the voicemail notify and neither worked. My iPhone was in sleep mode when I tested them and I left it sit for quite a while…I got nothing. Let me know in the comments if this app is working for you…it can be a lifesaver!
Note: This is just a code app. Which means after you install it, there will not be an icon on your SpringBoard.
Update: My iPhone just vibrated for the missed SMS and voicemail. This happened when I brought my iPhone out of sleep mode. So, I’m not sure what the deal is with that!
