Smart Mehtod of Managing Notification on Mobile Device

With the growing popularity of mobile, most business men are able to finish their daily office jobs on it.

Most mobile applications use notification for event or status updates. The notification might be the device vibration, or a pop-up banner that blocking the screen. Either way, it could interrupt the application that the user is currently using. The more application installed, the more notification you might get during a day, which is very likely to interrupt the user, and giving bad experiences.

One way to solve this issue is to turn off the all application notifications. However, some of the notifications can be useful sometimes, that the user cannot turn it off.

Is there a smart way to escape from the notification hell and get the right notification at the right time?

Core idea

Core idea

The core idea is to classify applications into different groups with different notification priority levels over time. The notification priority level of an application within a group is set to the group's priority by default, unless users manually modify it to a different priority level. While the user is using an application, only notifications with the same or higher priority will be displayed. Notifications with lower priority will be cached to be displayed after the application is either closed or running in the background .
