Quick App Review: DynamicNotifications

There are loads of cool apps out there that try to make your life a little easier. Typically, a manufacturer's fiddling with Android tends to do more harm than good, overall. However, some manufacturers do give us useful features we will actually use in real life. One of the most prominent examples is Motorola with the Moto X. Unfortunately, like many of Motorola's recent high-end phones, this one's a US-exclusive model.

You can, however, get at least some of the useful features from it on your phone today, so long as it's running Android 4.0 or above.

DynamicNotifications replicates the Active Notifications feature found on the Moto X. Essentially, when you get a notification, a text/Facebook message/Google+ notification, the screen will only partially come on, saving battery life (if your phone has an LED screen, Samsung, for example), and allowing you to either open or dismiss the notification without having to fully turn on the screen.

Really, the best way to see if you like it or not is to try it out.
