Am I the only one who is annoyed by companies abusing app notifications? I understand that malware websites and apps are using this technique, but why big serious companies are doing that? In my eyes their reputation drops instantly.

1) T-Mobile Android app. It's uselles malware. All notifications are adverts, competitions and the rest I am also getting by sms. I have disabled app notifcations completely.


Besides that, I have 100sms; 100minutes; "unlimited" data plan, which is limited to 20GB and then it's slowed down to 10megabits. The app widget should show remaining units, but they just show you data as unlimited and nothing more. Useless marketing...

2) sent me web notification today saying that they have stuff in sale... This is not what notification are for!
