Mobile notifications can be a useful way to receive relevant information. But, at the same time, they can also be overwhelming when what we receive is not relevant, or even worse, when we receive information we’re not interested in.
After working together for several years on Guiomatic from Alicante, José Luis Pérez (‘Josele’) and Oleg Kozynenko, started developing a new notifications system for their own mobile phones.
What at the time was a basic personal project to better understand mobile development ended up becoming Hooks, one of the better apps on the market to take control of mobile notifications.
Hooks allows users to decide what types of notifications they want to receive (a new goal from their favourite football team, a new Game of Thrones episode, when your company’s servers are down, when your company has signed a new client or even when it’s about to rain) and to communicate with users who receive similar notifications.
