Manage Your Notifications with NotificationOff

Notifications in Android are indeed a great thing to have. They come in handy for knowing exactly what is going on with many of our daily use apps. You get things like alarms, email , SMS, phone calls, and many other system and application related activities that you may need to be aware of. Having said that, there are always two sides to every coin and what can be useful for many, can indeed be quite an annoyance for others. There are people who need not keep track of every action that goes on in the device and definitely hate the intrusiveness of certain apps that use notifications as means of advertising. If you see yourself as someone in the latter group, then XDA Forum Member mcnamaragio has something in store that you might be interested in.

Since Jelly Bean was introduced, notifications have been somewhat easier to manage than before. Most applications and system event notifications can be toggled on or off thanks to an added option in the settings of each app. However, considering how many apps the average user can hold in a device, doing this manually for each and every single app can become a burden and a time consuming ordeal quite quickly. NotificationOff gives you an all-in-one screen where all these toggles for every single application can be found. Instead of having to navigate through menus back and forth, you have all the on/off goodness you can handle in a single, simple UI. Simply choose your targets, knock off the pesky notifications, restart your device, and you are set!

The app is quite simple to use and can indeed be a rather useful tool to get rid of certain nags and annoyances coming from some apps. Keep in mind that this will only work on Jelly Bean (4.1) and up. Please test it out and report any feedback you may have.

Hello,

I want to introduce my application “Notifications Off” for controlling application notifications in a centralized way.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
