Notifications can improve the overall user experience by notifying the user of new messages or events, even if they don't manage the app. The Android notification system has always been ahead of the curve, along with other platforms such as Windows or iOS. Although the Android notification center has evolved a lot over the past two years, it has few shortcomings. For example, it still lacks the option to display the notification organized under a proper set of categories, such as games, productivity, social media, etc. Here are the best notification apps for Android.



The best notification apps for Android

Flash when there is notification
