Easily Fine Tune Status Bar Notifications with Notification Clean
Don’t you hate it when that certain app creates an unwanted notification in your status bar? So do we. In fact, even Google doesn’t like unwanted spam in the status bar. This is, after all, why they no longer allow advertisements in the status bar.
That said, there are definitely other times in which even non-spam notifications may become annoying. These annoyances may arise from an app requiring an ongoing notification to prevent itself from being killed when losing focus, or any number of other reasons.
As of Jelly Bean, Android now has built in provisions in the App Info screen to allow users to disable notifications on a per-app basis. However, enabling and disabling notifications for each app must be done on a per-app basis. Furthermore, we all know that not everyone has access to a stable build of Jelly Bean.
Thankfully, XDA Senior Member defim has created an Xposed module that allows you to disable application notifications en masse. Instead of having to enter each application’s app info screen and manually disabling notifications, you can now easily specify which applications’ notifications you’d rather not see.
Naturally, since this is an Xposed Module, you need XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) to play. However, the installation is easy, and this should be compatible with all devices that can run Xposed (ICS+ with Xposed installed).
Head over to the module thread to get started.
