Annoying pop ups on your Android phone notification area? Jelly Bean to the rescue!
The new version of the Android OS 4.1 codenamed Jelly Bean introduces new features that allow the user more control over what apps can show notifications.
Improvements to the notifications allow the user to quickly find out what App displayed a notification by simply long clicking a notification, this allows the user to either uninstall the App or disable all notifications coming from the App.
Once notifications are disabled for an App that app has no way of knowing that the notifications are disabled, so as far as the App is concerned it is still showing notifications.
