Jelly Bean Tip: How to Disable Annoying App Notifications
Did you know it’s possible to disable those annoying app notifications from within the App Info page on Jelly Bean? Well it is, and it’s a great feature. As more apps lean towards invading your notification bar, Android has taken action and made it possible for users to disable an app’s ability to show you notifications. It’s extremely easy to enable/disable this option and requires very few steps.
There are various ways to enter an app’s info page, but once in there, toggling notifications on/off for that particular app is as simple as checking/unchecking the box next to “show notifications.”
Here’s a few ways you can easily get to an app’s information page:
- Long press on an app and then drag it up to the App info icon
- When you get a notification, long press on it and then click the App info popup
- Go into your Settings > Apps > Choose App
That’s it! Now say goodbye to incessant pestering from intrusive push-notification ads! Thank you Google!
