How will you address your user?

Time to notify

Being treated as a distraction is the last thing you want from your user. While some app’s settings can provide user options to customize their notification experience, angry user will turn off all your notification from iOS settings and you will lose notify really useful information to your user.

Where are you from? Culture in context

When your app is being used in different region, direct translation might sounded static and awkward. User feels a sense a belonging if local context is being added.

Sounds and Actions

Sound helps user to distinguish your app from the other app notifications without looking at the interface. It is advised to use short and distinctive voice.
