Facebook Notify, a news app with only push notification


By cutting away everything but notifications, Facebook’s latest app is either brilliantly efficient or your worst nightmare.

It’s hard to believe people are clamoring for more push notifications from their phones, but that’s exactly what Facebook is delivering with a new iPhone app called Notify.

At its core, Facebook Notify is an app for staying informed. But instead of coming up with a pretty interface for reading, like Flipboard or Facebook’s own Paper, Notify is little more than a vessel for notifications, which pop up on your lock screen or swoop down over whatever else you might be doing.
