iOS 5: Where did the alarm dialog go?

December 13th, 2011 No comments

Previous to iOS 5, when a players turn has stopped, an alarm dialog would display saying it was the next person’s turn.  The next person could tap on the Start button and Your Turn would start the next timer.

In iOS 5, Apple redesign the notification system and the new default alert style  is a banner notification which can easily be missed.

You can change this back to the alarm dialog by doing the following:

  1. Start the Settings App
  2. Select Notifications
  3. Scroll through the list of Apps until you find Your Turn and Tap on the entry
  4. Change the Alert Style to “Alerts”
  5. I would also suggest turning off “Notification Center” and “View in Lock Screen”

I have asked Apple to allow Apps to set the default settings.  I will post here if this gets fixed.
