    Back to iOS 9, notification banner annoyed me quite a bit when playing a rhythm game but not that much. I could still figure out a way to continue and disregard the banner. Previous alert just popped up a window at the centre part of your screen, disrupting whatever you are doing right now. It forces user to take action before doing anything else.
    In iOS 10 however, everything goes to the top of screen, which starts annoying me even further. Banner is taller than in iOS 9, occupying 1/3 of screen height when in landscape. And alert remains at screen AS A BANNER until you take action to dismiss it.
    And here is a screenshot of gameplay.

    So, after another ruined gameplay due to those annoying banners, I turn off all banners for all apps except phone call.
    Really angry about this new design, especially in landscape mode.
    And I can understand the feeling of those users who cannot tolerate changed behaviour to unlock devices. I am on the same boat to some extent.

    Update: I fully understand this game is far less popular on the other part of world. Since someone implies this game is BS, I admit it.

    I don't think your screenshot captured the alert...

    He's saying your game is BS, and so is your opinion about everything "change". We get it. You don't handle change well.

    Oh. Yeah. I know not many people around the world play this game.
    Then no need to catch up it anymore, and no one would even understand why I am annoying. Fine.

    This is what I was using, but turning it on and off before and after playing this game is equally annoying.
    So I turn banner off entirely.

    Yeah, containers (for widgets and notifications) are huge and quite rounded for my tastes and seems they won't be tweaked before the final release. :(
