I Hate iOS Notifications

Good article, which I would take further. Notifications are piss poor in iOS and OS X. They are user hostile and just plain don’t work. I have 17 notifications in the “all” tab, none of which I give a crap about — but it’s far too annoying to turn them off.

Don’t even get me started on OS X notifications — the notification center there may be the most worthless thing ever made.
