Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Prevent your iPad notifications from interrupting you

Nobody likes being interrupted by popups. Even if they are useful, as many iPad notifications are, sometimes they come up at the most inopportune times. You can customize your notifications easily to prevent unwanted ones from getting in the way. To configure them, go to Settings>Notifications. From there, you can set up just how you want notifications to appear. You can even choose which sound effects will play when a certain notification pops up as well.

My sound notification for messenger only works some time?. I have someone send a message to check it and maybe two out of five make the noise?


Hi Virginia,

Your iPad tends to stop using internet when you lock it to save battery, instead it periodically checks services like Facebook and Messages to save battery life. You currently cannot turn this off, if the notifications are very infrequent you may want to try re-installing the app to see if this solves your problem.

Sometimes apps have a battery saving setting in the app itself, you may want to open the app to see if this is the case.

I hope this helps,
Niall

App notifications on iPad


Notification Center settings: define what's shown To access Notification Center's settings, navigate to Settings > Notification Center. From there, you can select what elements which appear under the Today view. You can also disable or set how Notification Center alerts you for each of your App's notifications: via a banner or via a pop-up message.

TEXT ALERT


I use SMS Popup (from the Play Store) for repeating text message reminders. It has other functions, but I primarily use the 'reminder' options. I'm not sure if you could (or should) do 5 to 10 second intervals as it would probably kill your battery. I think that 1 minute is the minimum. I guess you could also use a notification sound that is longer. You could even record your own. I once recorded myself coughing and used it as the notification.
