I had the same problem as described in the topic and the app solved it. It really wakes up the screen when the phone is locked on any notifications ( whatsapp, messenger) . Thanks!
New phone here from iPhone. I got my notifications to come up on lock screen but how do I go to those apps then? With iPhone you just swipe the notification and it goes there. This does not happen with my Galaxy S8. Is thete a way to get it to do that?
For a text message, just tap on the notification and you will see the entire message. Tap the message again and it will take you to the messaging app. Of course, to protect your privacy, your phone needs to be unlocked to go to the app. If you have face recognition enabled, it will unlock automatically.
