Do Not Disturb

I got some interesting feedback from one person recently. He was complaining that he was forced to uninstall tickers. He was currently doing a presentation and the push notifications were constantly disturbing his presentation.

This is one of the cases where it’s awesome to be a software developer. I was thinking about adding a “Do not Disturb” mode, but discarded it for a simple reason: it’s the job of the OS to take care of this. But, as you can see, I was wrong. There is a need for this feature even on the app level.

As a consequence, tickers now has a “Do not Disturb” mode. When you activate it, you will not receive push notifications for the next eight hours or until you manually disable it again. The eight hour limit is just a comfort feature in case that you forget that you enabled the “Do Not Disturb” mode.

If you have a problem with tickers or want to see a feature that you think is missing, feel free to contact me.
