Snowball stops your notifications from, well, snowballing

Notifications can be both your best friend and your worst enemy. The more apps you install on your device, the more messier your notification screen becomes. And even deciding which one you want to see and which ones you want to turn off can become a drag. Snowball, formerly a unified inbox for all your messaging apps, now wants to help you manage the, err, snowballing notifications from distracting you from the important things that you need to focus on.
