▲ ▼ Saving offer notifications on smartphone
I get offers via push notifications regularly, but when I need them I'm unable to find those as I might have dismissed those notifications.
e.g. Say, I receive Uber offer code via notification on some random day, if I fail to click that notification and apply the code immediately; I'll loose that notification as I dismiss dozens of other notifications or if I receive another notification from Uber. At-least, Uber has provision to apply offer codes as soon as we receive the notification and use it on a later date; but many apps require the offer code to be used only at the time of purchase(which can vary from the date of notification).
If there was an app to store notifications, or better just the offer notifications then this problem can be resolved.
If you are on Android, you can use Notification Managers which can save notifications. I'm not sure which is the goto Notification Manager now, but I used to have LightFlow (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflow) for managing notification LED and if I remember right it can store notifications although I didn't use it for that purpose. You would be better off searching for a latest notification manager or may be use a Tasker recipe like this (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.balda.notificationlistener&hl=en) to filter offer notifications and store it as a note.
If you are on iOS, there's nothing much you can do as there are no 3rd party Notification control APIs and so you are limited to not dismiss notifications which you may need later.
Thank you, I looked at Lightflow and it seems that its functionality is limited with latest changes to Playstore guidelines from Google and Tasker seems to have a bit of learning curve.
