When you send a message using LINE, it lets you know whether your friend has seen the message or not with a little "Read" notification next to your message. It's useful for knowing whether your message has been seen or not, but on the flip side, you can't lie your way out of not responding to your friend by saying you didn't see their message.
There are some secret ways to peep your messages without notifying the sender that they've been seen, but they're a little inconvenient.
As such, I'd like to introduce to you Notification History, a nifty little app that will let you browse all your incoming messages and leave your friends none the wiser.
Start up the app, and it shows you a list of other apps that have sent notifications to your phone. Tap the app for which you want to view the notifications, and it shows you all the past notifications from that app. Unfortunately, this app doesn't show LINE stickers sent in messages.
The app requires a little bit of setup before using it. When you first start it up, you have to tap OK on the pop-up window. It then switches to the phone's main setting screen, where you have to change "Notification History" from OFF to ON. Then, go back to the app by hitting your phone's back key.
Personally, I don't think hiding the "Read" feature of LINE is worth going through this much trouble, but for those of you looking for a solution, this method works pretty well.
There's also a pro version for 100 yen that lets you save more notifications and removes the in-app advertisements.
