Illustration for article titled Apple May Finally Be Cleaning Up the iOS Notification System

I've ranted and raved about how much the iOS notification system annoys me in the past, so rumors that Apple is buying a small company and having it revamp that whole mess are making me drool.


Could it be that I'll finally get a proper, logical, and neat notification system on my iPhone?

According to Cult of Mac, yes:

Apple is working on a new notification system for iOS and will be buying a small company to build its technology into the operating system, according to one of our sources.


Our source, who asked to remain anonymous, didn't know the identity of the company, except it already has an iPhone app in the App Store.

One candidate is Boxcar, a free app from App Remix that enables push notifications for Twitter, Facebook, and email. Boxcar's system has been highly praised, especially the new iPad version.

App Remix's CEO didn't wish to comment on whether his company is the one supposedly being bought by Apple—and naturally the big A remains silent—so the rumor mill continues to churn out whispers out like crazy. [Cult of Mac]
