Interest in Notifications
Paola's interest in notifications started when she attended last year's WWDC. One of the talks that really caught her attention was on notifications. She was impressed with how the topic was delivered because it really went through the basics of understanding how things work.
Notifications is a topic that is not commonly discussed in detail. So she thought of talking about what she learned in meet-ups. It's a good way to share her knowledge with beginners.
Uses of Notifications
There are several uses of notifications in general. They help us set time and remind us of our daily activities. They also notify us when there's a new information or any data that needs to be refreshed.
In working on her app, notifications help her a lot in planning weekly. They inform her the important items that need to be taken care of. Basically, notifications exist to aid us in organizing and managing our schedule and workload.
Users' Experience in Notifications
What users see in notifications depend on where they are. Notifications may pop out on their lock screen or may show up as a banner at the top of the screen. They may also come along with sound depending on if the user made it available on his gadget.
Paola also discussed other types of push notifications and the difference between a push and local notification. To learn about this download iPhreaks Notifications – Paola Mata, and listen to the entire episode.
