Hide your less important notifications
Our filtered notification drawer is unique. Less important notifications don’t flash, vibrate, make noise or appear on your lock screen. But, you still receive them and they are accessible with an easy swipe.
Notified but not distracted
Focus on what is essential. Your important notifications work normally, so you don’t miss anything.
