Review Metro Notifications

Enozia Vakil
7.6Good
Simple design
No significant shortcomings
Highly inspired from the windows phone OS’s metro UI, Metro Notifications provide a very windows phone-ish style of notifications in the form of banners. You get to enable the option of getting notifications through Metro Notifications by activating its service in the accessibility menu in the settings area.
You are also provided with a convenient option of choosing the particular apps you require the notifications for, and you can activate and deactivate any of the application’s notification as you desire. The notifications worked quick and easy with no glitches whatsoever. Clicking on a banner would perform the same action as clicking on a notification would, so we’re good there too.
The notifications can be swiped towards left and right to clear it, much alike the windows phone’s notifications, with the only point of difference lying in the size - while the application displays slightly bigger banners of notification, the real banners are actually smaller, but then again, that doesn’t make much of a difference, does it?
The settings allow for changes in notification, sounds and advanced settings, much of which are not available due to the free version. If you desire more colors and settings such as black list, quiet time, display animation, and many others, by all means, paid version is also great.
Metro Notifications hence has very little left to complain, with the only drawback as the lack of too many features available for the paid version. But otherwise it is a great way to experience notifications the windows phone style.
