With swapping to Android recently all notification settings I’d enjoyed on iOS vaporised and I was back to square one once more. Now, I blinked, apps would notify if someone opened their car doors, I really didn’t care.
Today, I went to get something at the shops, no sooner had I started the car and was reversing when the first notification came through, minutes later the next, and at the store two more; enough already. Often it was pointless notifications from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc, a core set of applications.
Upon returning home I looked into how notifications worked and could be managed further. Relief was at hand, these can be individually controlled, placed into silenced or normal, and then grouped so you don’t get super long lists.
I’ve set things up such these main offenders are far more limited and mostly fall under silenced and won’t annoy quite so often, I hope. The noise these apps generate in our lives nowadays really does beg revisiting, they’re overly intrusive I feel.
