Texts: Yes, in the effort to make our lives more convenient, what can be done is that if your child receives a text message when time is up (bedtime), then they have an opportunity to reply to it right via the notification bar without actually opening up the Messages App. And then, this can go on and on…
Solution: Can you go to Android Settings and implement a Do Not Disturb for notifications?
Today: Your child can likely turn this Off if they find the setting but for a lot of kids, it works. Plus, some kids like it since they do not get disturbed with all the constant notifications, especially at night!
Future: We want your feedback on this too. We are exploring implementing a Do Not Disturb programmatically. We debating if we should have this ON by default or if we should have a setting that parents that elect to turn ON. This would mean that when bedtime comes, no notifications, including our own Boomerang notifications would come through. This would then be a feature that kids could not get around since we are doing it programmatically. Would you like such a feature? Do you think that we should just do it automatically or have parents decide and optionally turn it On?
