    Default Repeating notifications for calls, messages, email, voicemail, and if possible, calendar

    Peripherally connected to my earlier question about the low vibration... Since my wife doesn't feel the phone vibrate all the time, and thus missed calls, messages, and emails, and doesn't always see her voicemail, I'd like to find an app that'll do repeating notifications until she DOES feel one and go in to see what she's missed......

    I know messages already does repeating notifications, so that ones not a biggie.

    Does anyone know of an app that will let me
    1. Set a unique vibration and audio notification for calls, messages (?), email, voicemail, and if possible calendar appointments.
    2. Set the interval for which each of those notifications would be repeated - vibrate every 2 minutes for missed calls, and 5 minutes for missed messages for example.
    3. Automatically cancel once the triggering event has been addressed.

    I've found a couple voicemail apps - repeating notifications (which doesn't appear to automatically cancel the notification and I can't figure out how to set the notification and interval), dynamic notifications , a better voicemail notifier (works but has a LOT of popups, ads, and such), and so on, but I haven't found an app that lets me do the above.

    Ideas?

    I use Light Flow. I have the paid version and in the notification settings you can set a reminder tone at certain intervals. I don't know if the free version has that option. Here is the link:

    Light Flow is an awesome app. I used the free version to give it a try and after a week I bought the paid version.

    I believe Light Flow (free) was one of the ones I tried. I'll have to take another look 'cause I THINK all I could do was display, not vibrate or yell...

    That should certainly be possible with the free version of lightflow for a number of apps. If you have any issues setting it up, let me know via our website Light Flow - Total notification control for Android - Home (or post here)

    I downloaded the free version of Light Flow, and it looks like it mostly does what I"m after. I can have it do repeating notifications (audio or vibrate or both) for missed calls, email, and text (SMS?) messages. I also turned on MMS although I'm not sure what it is. I've got things set up for calendar appointments, too. It appears most everything works except voicemail. Do I need the paid version for that?
    Andrewpmoore, I tried going to the link in your post, but I just get a 404 error that it doesn't exist on this server.

    Light Flow appears to be working for my wife, with one exception. If I send her a message, she gets a notification. And the notification repeats fine (vibration only for her). But, unless she either replies to the message, or deletes the conversation, we can't figure out how to shut off the notification. Open the phone, go to "Messages", read the message, but don't reply or delete it, and it appears to continue notifying. I checked the notification section of Light Flow and the "Clear notification style" is set to "Notification removed"... I presume(d) that means when you go into the application the notification would stop. Is this incorrect? The other clear of "manual", "screen on", and "phone unlocked" don't seem like they'd be good choices. So, how do I cancel a notification for a missed call or sms message?

    You can create your own vibration in sound settings

    Which sms app do you use?, also which phone is it?

    Galaxy S5. That's in the sound menu not the app. But many let you customize through app too. If you change your default vibration it would apply to any vibration.
