How often do you check your notifications? According to ActionDash, I receive about 500 notifications a day, unlocking my phone about 100 times, with half of these unlocks being for sessions shorter than a minute. These interruptions break my flow and reduce productivity levels, but my FOMO makes me check the phone anyway. There's a new app being tested to help deal with this: Daywise.
Incubated at Duke University's Behavioral Economics lab, the app creates its own notifications inbox, where messages are batched together to be viewed during a pre-scheduled "notifications break." To ensure you don't miss something important, you can categorize certain app notifications as instant and others as batched — you can also assign VIP contacts whose notifications are never screened, and pause batching itself for a few hours.
