Controlling Notifications

Jeremy Keith:

The only time my phone is allowed to ask for my attention is for phone calls, SMS, or FaceTime (all rare occurrences). I initiate every other interaction — Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, the web. My phone is a tool that I control, not the other way around.

I’m not as extreme as Keith, but this has long been my approach to notification overload: turn notifications off.
