    Since updating to Lollipop, I was pleased to discover the new application notification settings which looked a far easier way to deal with notifications compared to the previous (unrooted) method.

    However, after going through the list and disabling all the apps that I didn't want to see a notification for, I was a little disappointed to recheck the list a while later to find that many had enabled themselves again. I repeated the process only to be annoyed by yet another Subway Surfers notification. Other apps have also somehow managed to enable notifications again.

    How does this happen? Surely I should be able to disable notifications for an app and expect it to stay disabled. These apps haven't been updated in the time between me disabling them and them enabling themselves so I'm a bit confused how this keeps happening. These apps are almost acting like malware for want of a better description.

    I've seen other people claiming subway surfers has re-enabled notifications at system level which is bad practice. Probably the best message you can send to them is leave a one star review and delete the app.
