SlimRoms are a popular custom version of Android, thanks to their slim download size and smooth performance.
SlimKat 4.4.4, based on Android KitKat, got a new weekly 6.2 update, which brings customizable Heads Up notifications & Quite Hours.
Heads Up notifications, made it’s debut during the Google I/O 2014, in the demo of Android L. After the source code for the Android L Preview was released to AOSP, the SlimRoms developers cranked up the notifications a bit with additional options.
Heads Up Notifications in SlimKat are expandable, i.e, you can view the full message in the pop-up, or just the sender’s information. You can swipe left on the notification to dismiss it completely, or swipe right to dismiss the heads up notification alone. It also has a snooze timer, which acts like a “Do Not Disturb” mode, and a Time out option, which allows you select the number of seconds, the notification will be displayed on the screen for. You can choose between 3 – 10 seconds, and also have a Never time out option.
SlimKat lets you select various options, which will trigger Quiet Hours. You can choose to enable Quiet Hours automatically when WiFi is disabled/enabled, at a particular time everyday. Here is the official video which explains both features:
