Samsung S8 has gained a lot of popularity for its amazing look and its cool features. But the one thing everyone likes the most is its edge notification.
Most of the S8 users have become fan of new eye-catching and hard to ignore notification display that pops-up an App icon first before showing portion of the notification.
And now Samsung has got another way to display notification for not only smartphones but smartwatches as well. This new notification design will save you from opening an App to read a notification discloses their recent patent application.
Simply put, if you received 10 notifications from 3 different Apps, say 3 emails on Gmail, 6 messages on WhatsApp and 1 on FB messenger, then you won’t be opening each App to read what is in there.
All you will be doing is selecting the App that notifications you want to read first from the notification bar itself. The notification will get expanded in the form of a card where you can read the entire message without even opening an App.
You will be swiping left to right to jump from one notification to another. Once you will be finished with all the notifications of one app, notifications of the next will start automatically on the cards.
Let me make it bit clearer by taking the above example again. Let’s say you decided to read your emails first that are 3 in number. Hence, you will be presented with three cards. Once you read them, the cards displaying messages from WhatsApp will start appearing.
This new way to display and let a user read notifications going to play a crucial role in the small screened smartwatches. I feel it to be an ergonomic design to deliver notification. What do you think?
