The staff here at State-Lines is excited for a small announcement today that will help you keep up to date with everything we do here at State-Lines.com. Today, State-Lines officially launched a feature that will allow Apple users to receive notifications from State Lines every time a new article is published. This is a great way for State Lines readers to keep in touch with the site and get notified as soon as new content is published.
Yeah, we’re pretty excited about it too. Push notifications reach a sweet balance between informative and non-intrusive. The notifications appear above all other windows and if not clicked on, it disappears after a few seconds.
How do I subscribe?
Step 1: Make sure you have a Mac running OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) or higher.
Step 2: Open Safari and go to State-Lines.com. Note that you don’t have to use Safari all the time in order to receive notifications. However, you can only subscribe to push notifications in the first place by using Safari.
Step 3: A small popup will appear, telling you that State Lines wants to send you push notifications.
Step 4: Click “Allow”
After subscribing, and every time a new article is published on State-Lines, a small banner will appear in the upper right corner of your Mac. If left untouched, the banner will disappear within a few seconds and will then go to Notification Center on the Mac. If you click on the banner, you will be taken to the article.
How do I unsubscribe
Unsubscribing from push notifications is almost as easy as subscribing.
Step 1: Open Safari.
Step 2: In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on Safari > Preferences > Notifications.
Step 3: You should see a list of websites you have subscribed to. For the website you want to unsubscribe, simply select “Deny.”
Step 4: Close Safari. You shouldn’t receive any new notification after that.
