Odd use of notifications

Honestly, I find that I never look at this app, and the only time it has sent me push notifications were for two things: 1. For the last WWDC it sent notifications; 2. It sent notifications tonight to tell me it was updating itself.

Other than those two things, there have been no notifications at all.

For these reasons, I am deleting the app.

Best source for Mac news and other tech

Thanks for a great app to keep informed of news and updates for Mac, iPhone and iPad, as well as other technology. Easy to use and navigate and best one-stop source for info on all my devices, and new and upcoming releases of software and hardware.

Clearing for All Apple News

Hot Mac News is my go-to site for all news about Apple and related stories. Maybe TMI, but it’s my last late-night reading before turning off the light.
