Make your phone alerts pop

Like the little pullout triangle that supports a picture frame on a table, or the common zipper, there are seemingly trivial inventions in this world whose simplicity has changed our lives in big ways.
Even in the billion-dollar world of high-tech communications and Internet connectivity — where the world’s brightest minds focus on inventions — new zippers and picture-frame supports of the high-tech world are waiting to be invented. Over the last year, the young Israeli company Pops has developed something along this line: a new messaging alert application.
You can download Pops’ alert management solution to any Android phone. It connects SMS messages, emails, Facebook alerts, LinkedIn messages and any other form of messaging you are tuned into on your cell phone, collecting the “incoming message” alert in one place on your screen.
Considering the deluge of information we face daily — and some of us even resort to checking mail and messages while driving or in the restroom — Pops could even make message management more safe and satisfying: With an average of 3,000 alerts coming at you each month, there has to be a better way to manage everything without constantly checking each source of messages.
“We can personalize e-notifications, and very easily we can get in the place where we can be annoying. We are trying to reduce that annoying factor and allow a user to manage and filter out the noise and stay with the notifications he cares about and he feels closest to,” says company co-founder and CEO Yaron Orenstein. “We do that intuitively, so users can mix and match everything.”
Based on user intuition and a simple choices interface, Pops makes use of the blacked-out screen of your cell phone. Whether you are sitting in a movie or a meeting, or you want to flaunt your popularity among a group of friends, you can program Pops to send you the messaging alerts you want, via animations and other rich media.
