What you get with Daywise:

*Instant & batch apps recommendations - Daywise analyzes every app on your phone and categorizes them into ‘Instant’ and ‘Batched'. We do the heavy lifting, you add the finishing touches.

* Choose VIPs - Choose which of your friends can interrupt you during work hours, batch the rest for later. You decide who gets your attention. Grant "Contacts" permission to unlock this feature.

*Flexible batch timings - Choose the times of the day when you want to get notifications. Protect your work, sleep and personal time!

*Notification bundles - We'll send you a Daywise notification bundle of all notifications you got while you were working, sleeping and relaxing.

* Notification Inbox - Your batched notifications are neatly organized all in one place. See notifications when you want to, not when apps want you to.

* Create custom rules - Set which kind of notifications you'd like to see instantly, never see. Personalize it as much as you like, make Daywise your own.

* Improve your digital wellbeing - Learn how much time you spend on your phone and away from it. Find which apps interrupt you the most and batch them!

Privacy by design
All your notifications are stored only on the device. We don't send anything to our servers.

Fantastic concept, but not usable for me in its current state. When notifications do come through, they need to behave like the app isn't there, which isn't happening in all scenarios (crucially, it's broken whenever phone set to vibrate only). Also as others say the ability to see the contents of the inbox in between batch release times and without pausing the app is missing.

Hi Iain, thanks for your feedback. We did dig into this issue and it appears that Fairphone is behaving a bit differently when compared to others, by changing certain underlying Android behavior that's necessary for Daywise to function. If you have another phone, please give that a try, you shouldn't get a phantom buzz when the phone is on vibrate.

Yes, it's expensive, but it's far and away the best solution I've found for notification management. It allows you to let through specific users (like a spouse or family - no other app I've seen does this) and apps. The UI is crystal clear and easy to use. Notifs come in a few times a day in a configurable way. It really makes my relationship with my phone far better, and that is easily worth $30 to me.

Daywise is a phenomenal app tht does everything as advertised. In a world where time is so important, it is hard to keep distractions at bay. Daywise is the absolute perfect solution to a common problem: far too many notifications. This app not only alleviates the problem, but allows you to take full control of how you receive notifications. I wouldn’t ask for anything more from Synapse. They have created a terrific app.
