New software holds smartphone alerts when you are busy

The information is then sent anonymously to Triggerhood's servers, where an algorithm determines whether you are likely to find it a good or bad time to get a notification, according to 'MIT Technology Review'.

The software will help apps to time their push notifications so that maximum communication with each user is ensured.

It helps smartphone apps evaluate the way their users spend time on their phone, see which other apps they are using, and also know at which location their device is used the most.

Integration with Triggerhood requires just one line of code, according to the website.

It takes a few days to build a personal profile for a user before Triggerhood can determine that, say, a news app should send you notifications about articles after you go running rather than during your run.

Triggerhood's cofounder and product head, Guy Balzam, said several small apps are using it. His company is working to bring it to some larger apps as well.
