Stop Blowing Up Your Phone - #TechTipTuesday

A iDevice Notification for EVERYTHING. 

Every new game, on-demand service, social media, or utility app wants to send you push notifications. It wants to flood you with reminders that you have not paid enough attention to your device yet today, and that those are phantom vibrations you are feeling, they are just your apps poking you to pay attention to them. 

Enough is enough

From your iDevice's settings you can control the madness. Accessing the notifications section of settings allow you to turn on and off notifications for any app on your phone. For native apps like Messages, you have some other great options that edit the way you are notified. 

So from what could be a buzz or a ping every three minutes, can be reduced to just a buzz when you receive a text message, or just banner when your Uber is arriving.
