    Default App notifications in status bar

    I stumbled across a little something today that I love.
    You know how when you download an app and it starts putting notifications in the status bar but doesn't tell you which app is from? Well with JellyBean is really easy to find out which app is doing it and even turn off the notification without uninstalling the app.

    1 When you get the unnamed notification tap and hold it. A popup with App Info comes on the screen.

    2 Tap the popup and it takes you to the App Manager for that unknown app.

    3 Under the Force Close button the is a checkbox to stop notifications from that app.

    It's now that easy to find out where unknown notifications come from and stop them dead in their tracks.

    Hit the "thanks" button if you found this helpful in any way.

    Stock Sprint GSIII lover!
