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.
