Filter box, a really minimalistic and simplistic notification manager for your Android smartphone. That basically offers detailed analytics and the ability in order to create custom rules for your notifications.

How Typing Notifications actually Work

Most of the typing notifications are triggered whenever a user taps on the text field. Clicking on a text field sends a notification to the receiving user. Since this happens before the message is completed and sent, users basically get notifications in “real-time” so to speak. This can obviously lead to some errors in communication as well.

Whenever someone starts to write you a message on Snapchat, the app will then display a notification. That indicates that the person is writing to you. But, if that person stops writing and doesn’t hit Send, however, rather leaves the message as is, in order to finish it later. The typing notification will linger until the message is either sent or deleted actually.

Unlike text messages on your phone or email client, Snapchat doesn’t really save unfinished messages as drafts. If it did, then that person could obviously review the message later, wrap it up, and then tap send. Since this is not how Snapchat does things, it’s not uncommon to get stuck along with a typing notification from someone. Until they’ve finished writing and sent you the message actually.

Well, the same kind of notification occurs if only a single space adds to a message. Just consider the following situation. You’re looking for someone however, you accidentally click on someone else’s name. You guys hit space or you tap a single letter and then realize that it’s the wrong person.

If you guys do not delete what you’ve added to the text box before exiting the chat to find the actual intended user. Then the person you’ve accidentally tapped will likely get stuck along with a typing notification from you.
