Nice idea! The yellowish colour you use makes a good contrast with the red badge and it makes me realize it’s more intruding than I originally thought. The red colour itself signals a feeling of urgency, although often times it’s not something urgent at all…A colour switch may be a good addition to this solution? Just to add on, I think it would be nice for the users themselves to decide what makes a notification urgent/important (I feel this can be somewhat complicated but it would be awesome to have that), and the colour of the badge can be customized by the users themselves.
Besides that, another solution is for people to shut down the notification/badge feature and that’s what I have done to most of the apps on my phone.
@astra Hello and welcome to the community! Personally speaking, I know the negative consequences of owning a phone, but I look at it from a neutral perspective that is everything has pros and cons. Hence for me, it’s how intentional I am when I use my phone and always reflecting on whether the way I use my phone has contributed to my life in a useful way or not. It’s good to know people’s own perspective on the use of tech. Thanks for sharing the article!
