To round off the week, we would like you - in addition to the practical application "Unused app remover" - imagine another tool: The introduced with Android 5.0 Lollipop heads-up notifications are not for everyone. By using "HeadsOff" can be disabled if desired but this now - root privileges are not required. The app is free in the Play Store.
About the sense or nonsense of the heads-up notifications can be worthy of debate. In Android 5.0 Lollipop they broke from the previous "ticker" that indicated the notification text in the status bar continuously. Although the new system is able to more clearly show more content, can the floating window on top of the screen to act somewhat disturbing and sometimes intrusive.
For users who feel that way, the developer of Floatify Notifications and snapshot camera now has "HeadsOff" created. The application can disable the sometimes perceived as a nuisance alerts permanently. In the free version, all heads-up notifications of each app are disabled - in the Pro version, the user can individually select which application should inform him via the floating window and what is not. Root privileges are required neither the free nor in the paid version - only access to the notifications must (obviously) be allowed.
In Android 5.1 Lollipop, Google has adopted the way of user complaints and revised the function &# 8212; in the latest Android iteration heads-up notifications can be intuitively wiped up and stored for later without them disappear altogether. However, according to the latest distribution statistics only 0.8 percent are favored, while 11.6 percent of users have Android installed on their mobile devices 5.0, "HeadsOff" still has a right to exist. In the Play Store, the practical tool is essentially free available - for the Pro version, meanwhile, falling 1.49 euros.
