Hooks app review: customized notifications



There are things you just don't want to miss and for those things why not set up notification reminders? The Hooks app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone allows you to set up customized alerts for all kinds of things. The app is very simple and user-friendly and you won't ever have to worry about forgetting things again. What's cool is that the app works with you so if there's something you can't find alert-wise, it will look for you.

Fully Customizable

The Hooks app is fully customizable so that it really does work for your needs and requirements. There are so many different ways to use this app that it is sure to offer benefits for anyone. The app comes with a number of alerts that are already included but again if there is one you want and you can't find you can always send a message to the developer to try to get it added. The list of alerts is varied and includes such things as weather alerts, concert alerts, soccer team results, TV show alerts, film releases, mentions of your brand or you, Twitter search results, changes in stock values, and plenty more.

The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has four out of five stars. Users have commented on how smooth the app is to use and the fact that it makes scheduling these notifications so quick and easy. In its most recent update the app went through a number of performance enhancements and some minor bug fixes giving users an even more stable experience.

The User Experience

The way the Hooks app works is that you will be able to set up each alert notification independently, allowing this app to really work for you. Pick the alert you want to use and then decide if you want a notification without sound, with sound, or if you just want to be able to view the notification in the timeline.

What makes this app so useful is the fact you're able to set up all your alerts in one central location and also visit this one spot to view upcoming alerts. It eliminates the need to move from app to app just to figure out what's coming up. By streamlining the process you are much less likely to miss out on important events/happenings. You'll find the user interface has been designed with ease-of-use in mind and there is nothing intimidating or confusing about it.
