Did you know that your Android or iPhone smartphones both boast a series of tools that can help you concentrate on the people who matter, rather than being distracted by random calls, messages and alerts. You can easily weed out the random calls, messages and alerts, and focus only on the ones that really matter to you.
1.) Screening your calls with Do Not Disturb (iOS) and Priority (Android) modes
You can set “Do Not Disturb” and “Priority” mode to screen your calls and text messages, allowing only the most important ones through.
2.) Enable ‘VIP’ alerts for email messages (iOS only)
Mail’s “VIP” alerts give you separate notifications for your most important email contacts.
To enable: Open the Mail app, back up to the main Mailboxes screen, tap the VIP mailbox, then tap Add VIP to add a contact to your VIP list. Once you’ve added names to the list, tap VIP Alerts to manage your VIP notifications.
3.) Turn on alerts for GMAIL’s Priority Inbox—and off for all your other inboxes (Android & iOS)
While iOS’s Mail app will let you pick and choose your VIPs, GMAIL has its own way to determine which messages are the most important to you. GMAIL’s Priority Inbox sifts through your incoming messages and finds the email that you’re most likely to want to answer. It puts those messages into an “Important and unread” folder instead of the standard Inbox. You can set GMAIL to alert you only when new messages land in your Priority Inbox.
4.) Turn off lock-screen notifications (Android & iOS)
It’s easy to get your lock-screen notifications down to an absolute minimum or turn off completely.
