External displays have the potential to make smartphone\ud notifications less obtrusive when a user has committed their\ud attention to a primary task. We compare six notification displays,\ud and evaluate the impact that negotiating smartphone\ud interruptions has on a typing task when the number of notifications\ud to ignore and act on are equal. A lab experiment with\ud 30 participants is conducted, and initial results show that\ud desktop pop-ups are preferred significantly more, where they\ud require the fewest actions to read. Managing notifications via\ud the notification bar is least preferred, despite requiring fewer\ud actions to respond. This work is a well-controlled pre-cursor\ud to the application of notification displays in social scenarios.\ud The results motivate the use of external displays to manage\ud attention around smartphone interruptions.
