If for some rea­son you’re un­happy with your Android phone’s in-built no­ti­fi­ca­tion man­age­ment, this new app pro­vides a pretty good al­ter­na­tive.

Once in­stalled, you can choose from any app on your phone which sup­ports notifications, and have them reg­is­ter with this app’s quite stylish and dis­creet front-page widget. This comes in the form of a bar which ap­pears at the top of the phone screen, or else you can open the No­ti­fi­ca­tion Hub app and see each no­ti­fi­ca­tion in the or­der they ar­rived.

It’s pos­si­ble to up­grade to a Pro ver­sion of the app, which al­lows Notifications An­a­lyt­ics (who wants this?) and notifications based on your lo­ca­tion (could be use­ful), among other things. No­ti­fi­ca­tion Hub does what it says on the tin, but few Android users will des­per­ately seek an al­ter­na­tive to the de­fault.

Still, there must be a niche of users who do want some­thing bet­ter, and this is a wor­thy (and free) way to go about that.
