Utilize new notification API in Android 4.3
Android 4.3's new Notification APIs allows any app to register with the notification server for management. If this is utilized by the MightyText host app on Android phones, it could register for notification management and dismiss SMS notifications when they are read remotely.
This, of course, means no more annoying blinking LEDs and backlogged notifications when you've been away and using MightyText. Moreover, it should be a simply addition since it is a fully supported API.
I'll just leave this here:
Just wasted a vote on this one in the vain hope it gets sorted - I would have thought 1,750+ votes would have been enough to get the feature request some higher priority...
Hopefully the unread/read status of a message can get sync back to devices once viewed in MT. Ideally MT would also clear the unread status in the phone's SMS app too (or am I moving the goalposts with that idea?).
At the very least anyway MT needs clear the notifications on secondary devices (e.g. tablet at home) that end up with a ridiculous backlog of notifications after a busy day at work. I've heard devs state they can't reach out and rescind notifications once they are sent to the Android OS, but I think there are other ways to resolve that (e.g. a tweak to the notification itself, I thought). Matt seems to have some suggestions...
Fingers crossed it gets done soon.
@Noel: good workaround, I might try that setup out since I'm already running both pushbullet and mightytext side by side
+3 votes for this to be implemented. My current workaround is to enable notifications via Pushbullet and disable popups with MightyText. Thus when a text comes in I click on the Pushbullet notification and can quickreply from there; it clears the notification on my phone afterwards. I only use MightyText if I need to backread a conversation thread or compose a new SMS.
Maybe if we hit 2000 votes? Honestly at this point it seems like pushbullet will implement texting and grab a lot of mightytext users before this gets fixed.
same idea and request. Thank's
Yes, this'd be perfect!
Please please please do this! I can't live with using Pushbullet and MT at the same time!!!
If this will ever be implemented (and it should, MightyText). Please don't forget to add support for third party sms-apps (like Textra).
Also, I honestly don't know why this still isn't a feature? It's the single thing this app is missing! We don't want to share pictures with MightyText, we have enough services for that already! We want a good way to send and receive sms messages on a pc (and tablet). Period. Dismissing the notifications on the device would make MightyText perfect.
Don't get me wrong, I think you're doing a great job, but you guys need to get your priorities straight. Texting is what this app is for and I think that should deserve the most of your attention.
1001 votes, hope this makes next version! Pushbullet can do this also.
The Motorola Connect application cleared the phone's notifications when read on the computer so it 100% can be done, I only switched to MightyText a few days ago because I was having trouble logging into the Motorola Connect - overall features are better with MightyText however the lack of clearing notifications is a definite downgrade...
i agree please add this feature, the app is so close to perfect

This would make the app a lot better. I still have to go to my phone and dismiss texts if I want it to stop blinking, or have to mark them as read so they don't show up as unread in my sms app...
I'm running Pushbullet along side MT just so I can dismiss the notification from the Pushbullet popup and read/reply from the MT popup lol. I wouldn't think this should be hard to implement into MT and needs to be done stat. It's literally the only feature I wish MT had.
I'll help you set up are you apps
This needs to happen. It's been talked about for years and it's a no-brainer, obvious feature. Why has this not happened yet?
Can I ask what for?
I need "Missed It!" to be my notification listener. Can there be multiple notification listeners?
I agree with everything, was looking for a way to do this. I have just started using mighty text but now find it invaluable, when I am at work and cannot have my phone, but then clearing out each individual thread is annoying. +1 for this idea
@jon close, but Mightytext's biggest shortcoming is the neglect of their own user feedback...
Non-clearing of notifications on the phone when read elsewhere seems to me to be Mightytext's biggest shortcoming.
