In Android, notifications can be set to be "onGoing", which means they are sticky and cannot be swiped away. Some common examples are music players, and Android's own update notifications.
I have an app that senses when a user enters a gym and starts timing. All of this is done in the background (using GPS), and I show a notification with a message when a visit is detected.
Does it make sense to make my notification sticky while I am recording gym time? I'm afraid a user may find it unnecessary.
edit -I should mention the user can also end visits from the app
The screenshot below is my app notification on the top, followed by three sticky notifications from other services.
(If I were to make it sticky the message would change to "You are currently at the gym")
