Here at Ausdroid we test a lot of applications, and like us, the Android Police have come across a major annoyance — apps that generate spam notifications requesting that you install other apps. These are incredibly annoying, but if you’re a bit more of a power-user, you’d know that Jelly Bean 4.1 gives you a way to disable these on a per-app basis by use of the App Info menu.

Android developer Giorgi Dalakishvii has created a more user friendly solution to this problem, allowing you to view, enable and disable all app notifications from one easily accessible place.

The app is simple, but powerful. Sadly, it requires a rooted handset at this time, and Jelly Bean 4.1 or higher. With a one-time prompt for root access, you can see a list of all your installed apps, and by means of a simple checkbox, you can enable or disable notifications on a per-app basis from the one screen. Simply hit save, and those spammy notifications that we all hate will be a thing of the past.

An added bonus is the ability for power-users to disable notifications from system apps, and to automatically disable notifications from all apps installed from that point on through the Play Store (which you can, of course, re-enable later should you want notifications from a particular app).

This’ll be a handy tool, and one we’ll no doubt be using in future.
