With the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean there are many questions about using the new features in the up and coming Android OS. One of these features is the ability to turn off notifications on an app by app basis. Many apps that you download will not have an in app way of turning off all notifications and can get quite annoying at times. This being said Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has a new feature to allow you to disable an apps notifications anyway.
How to Turn Off Notifications:
The new feature to disable app notifications can be found on the app info screen. You can get to the app info screen by long pressing a notification or going to “settings -> Apps” and then selecting the app you want to change. Tap the checkmark beside show notifications and accept the warning. At this point you have turned off notifications for the app you had selected and will no longer receive them from now on. If later you decide you want the notifications you can re-check the box in the same way.
This is one of the more useful features that have been added to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS that may be overlooked by the average person. This will help with those apps like music downloaders that hit you with notifications non-stop. If you have anything to add please feel free to leave it in the comments below.
