Peek app brings the subtle notification system of custom ROMs to any Android KitKat phone

motion sensors in your phone when you get a notification, so that the handset can turn the screen on, and display them when you pick it up from the desk, or take it out of your pocket. The sensors are activated for ten seconds only, so that using Peek won't affect your battery life, and in the newest version you can also blacklist apps you don't want to activate Peek.In a nutshell, Peek probes the
The active notification is then displayed on the lock screen when you pick up the phone, and you can either dismiss it, slide down its icon for a quick read, or slide left to activate the originating app. Watch Peek in action in the video below, and head to the source link to download it, if it has piqued your interest.

it does not work on Xperia Z2 with a new build just updated today from 17.1.A.2.55 to 17.1.1A.0.402 so how to make the peek work? I lock my phone no information came up with and without PIN enabled. I have enabled it under settings > security > device administrators and also under settings > security > Notification access. wtf paid for $4.09 and it does not work. Running on 4.4.2. on my Xperia Z2 and it does not work on Galaxy S4 running Kitkat.

This app was NOT developed by Francisco Franco, it was developed by Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo, and as a Chilean, he cannot sell apps on Play Store yet, so Franco uploaded it in his account. Daniel P. must correct this and give the credits to the developer.

Looks like a useless app honestly. Why wouldn't it jump straight into the from the notification? Also how many people don't lock their phones anyway? Seems like I'm in the minority who actually has a password on mine. I know it's inconvenient but it's better than leaving a gaping security hole into your life.
