Turn off notifications for specific apps on Android

Android allows you to turn off notifications for specific apps. However, the way to do this is not very obvious. I have an account on Flickr, however, did not want to continuously receive notifications on photos I commented on!

To turn off notifications, goto –

Settings -> Apps -> Select App -> Uncheck Show Notifications

Its a bit cumbersome but gets the job done. I’m not sure if this affects battery life in any way but if you aren’t being notified all the time, I’m guessing it saves you battery.
