I'd like to ask for advice regarding push notifications for mobile devices.
I'm creating a sort of a personal task logger / task management app, yet I'm unsure whether I'd like to keep notifications or not.
We get so many notifications from social media, work apps, chat apps and whatnot. So I thought it might be wise to experiment with not being able to set notifications when using a task logger to develop a mindful and concise approach to planning and completing tasks.
This way a user cannot rely on notifications to remind them here and there about tasks to do. They would have to develop a habit of managing their tasks in a mindful way.
It would also eliminate the risk of deleting app's notifications either occasionally or intentionally, because we tend to clear notifications off our screens.
Of course, such approach is experimental and might not be suitable for everybody. However, if you know specific examples when this did (or didn't) work, or if you'd like to give your particular thoughts on it - please share them!
P.S. I'm not talking about a project management app, where notifications about deadlines, feature requests, meetings and so on are mandatory. I'm ideating around a notification-less concept for a personal task management app.
