Block App Notifications Issues

Post by trevorsky » Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:28 pm

Until recently, the "Block App Notifications" screen did not sort the applications. So it was very difficult to find apps in the list. That problem seems to have been resolved (not sure how, since I don't recall seeing an app update, but I'm happy regardless).

There is still a problem though, in that not all apps are included in the list.

Example #1:
I receive a rather constant stream of work-related email in my "Email" app on my phone. I have my phone set to notify but no vibrate/sound for this app. This way if I look at the screen, I see that there are emails, but it doesn't seek out my attention. On my watch, though, I get a buzz every time an email comes in, and I can't turn it off because the "Email" app isn't in the list.

Ideally, I would love to be able to have it show in the list but not buzz. But even just being able to block completely would be better than how it is right now.

Example #2:
Whenever my phone turns on GPS, it shows a Location Found notification. My watch also buzzes for this notification, and I can't find any way to hide it. I think it comes from "System UI" on the Android side, and this is not in the list to be hidden.

Example #3: Google Play Store. I just plugged my phone in, and so it's downloading a bunch of app updates. My watch is buzzing every 30 seconds, and I can't disable those notifications from buzzing the watch.

Bumping this to the top, since I also have a problem with #2.

I also have the problem #3. Play store notifications are driving me crazy!

Open your companion app --> notification --> block app notification --> google play services... That will stop notification from play store

Ditto, the notifications from #2 in the OP are coming from the Android System, not the play store. "Location found" "Connected to x network", etc... How can these be disabled?

there is no option to switch off notification in ticwear for whatsup which is bundled with Andoid 7 UK version as it is not listed amongst applications to block. is there a way to get around this issue?
Thank you
