Glimpse Notifications

Glimpse Notifications is an efficiency App which helps you to better notice new and pending notifications.


There is no actual documentation, unfortunately.

However, there is an ever-growing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document.

Please let me know if you think there's some important part missing.

Privacy Policy

We don't collect, store, or transmit your data, period.

Why physically can't. We have nowhere to store it. We don't even have a server database to store it. So even if Justin Bieber asked nicely to see your data, we wouldn't have anything to show him.

The FAQ Document describes why and when certain permissions are used by the App.
