Notifications | Snooze function

Today we are excited to announce that we have added a long-awaited function to the timer notification alerts. This delayed waking process is called a "Snooze" function. This means that your iOS push notifications can now include a push action button beneath the message body, allowing you to activate the "Snooze" function when the timer goes off. The timer alert is muted for another 9 minutes.

After 9 minutes, the timer alert sounds again. You can repeat the process multiple times.

To stop the "Snooze" function, press the Terminate or Restart button.

Please note: to respond to a notification on your lock screen, just swipe left over the notification and tap "View".
