I have set up Smart Remote so I can control my TV, etc in my living room. Now that it's set up, the damn thing will not stop giving me "watch now" recommendations in my notification bar. Granted, it's only once a week, but the S5 seems to LOVE giving you annoyingly stupid notifications all the damn time. Does anyone know how to disable these intrusive (it's enormous, with a picture of the show it's recommending) notifications?

I'm in the same boat as the OP. There does not seem to be a disable notifications option.

Oh right, I am so used to apps providing their own "turn off notifications" setting that I completely forgot about Application Manager also having that option. Thanks, I turned off notifications for Smart Remote. Now let's see if that works, or if Samsung's penchant for annoying me wins out in the end.

I had to freeze the security update notification in Titanium Backup to stop that thing from telling me to sign up for security updates every couple of days. I just wish there was a "Do Not Disturb" option where I could turn off all notifications except for the ones I want, rather than having to hunt down and disable every annoying pop up.

Well its been a while since this was discussed and since I've been on the forum - nice to be back actually.

I am also getting most annoying popups in my drop down bar for "remote control for TV app"

Because I don't have the app install I'm not sure how to disable this notification/popup.

Any other ideas?
