Paranoid Android is introducing a new feature into the ROM called Peek, which is an add-on for Android’s notification system that brings smartwatch-like convenience to a smartphone. Peek listens for notifications and phone movement, and if the phone is moved within 10 seconds of receiving a notification, the phone’s screen will light up to show you what you missed. Tapping the notification icon will jump straight into the corresponding application. If you’ve played around with the Active Notifications on the Moto X, the two appear to work pretty similarly.
If you’re currently a user of PA, you’ll see the new features rolled into your ROM fairly soon. If you haven’t tried Paranoid Android, this might be a good time to test it out.
