What're the apps that send you push alerts that really have no good reason, save trying to get you to spend more time on the app, to send you a push alert?

I turn all push notifications off on everything right away. The only thing that has the right to hijack my time is my own bad self.
Why do people so willingly and cavalierly cede their time to apps and corporations? Don’t you have better things to be, to do, to learn? I sure as hell do. I don’t give a crap about what Tim Cook or Delta wants me to see. Humans are not cognitively set up to handle what smartphones do to us. We’re just not.
