Its about time we improved notifications. Most apps these days have damn near perfect UX, so why do we slack off so much when it comes to notifications? So many things can be better, they could be prioritised, they could be far more informative and they could be grouped.
Sure, each of these things are up for debate. But what isn’t really?
Of late, I’ve been a little bothered by how uninformative messaging notifications are. To be specific, I’d like to know if someone is still typing without having to open the app. Because ya know, convenience.
So after a year of boycotting After Effects, I opened it up again to make a super quick mock up of what I think would work:
This design is suggesting a complete uphaul of the iOs notifications system, but meh. It was a fun concept to work on. It clears up a lot of space and gives users more information.
