Stop Annoying App Notifications On Android

I absolutely love my android device! Unfortunately I have many games and apps installed on my android device and receive tons of lame notifications to remind me to play or buy something. This is becoming a common practice for many application developers and it may be a tad bit annoying for many of us. Here are a few steps to turn those pestering app notifications off:

Lollipop: Disabling App Notifications After You Get One

With Android 5.0 or higher, you can block a notification from any app. When you get a notification that you do not want to see, all you have to do is long-press the notification and tap the "i" button that shows up. From there, you will be able to enable "block", after this you will never see a notification from this app again.
