Something to keep in mind

While this serves you as the best option to get rid of notifications from a particular app, you must understand that notification “off” means it will turn off “all the notifications” including sound effect, banners, buzz, etc. If you do not want this all to be blocked, you need to adjust the setting accordingly. For this, you need to “mute” concerned notification such as the mail sound alert.

It all depends on what all you want to block and iPhone and iPad provide you with this flexibility. Whether you need a notification or an alert for Facebook comment, or when someone drops you an email or message? It is up to you. Change the settings of that particular app and set yourself worry-free!

Enjoy, your gadget is now customized and will show you what you want and not what vendors want! 🙂
