Alarm alert disruptive during UI screen use or texting.

Recommend redesigning of Clock/Calendar alarm or other alarm SFOS popup notifications during phone unlocked and screen on and screen use.

Currently during SFOS ui use when alarm notification occurs it basicallly janks you out of what you were just doing mostly resulting in a feeling of surprise and angst momentarily.

What it should be doing is minimize popup alerts to the top banner when phone is unlocked, screen is on, and phone is in use (which basically means digitizer receiving inputs from fingers tapping or moving about tge screen)

Why this is important is because it improves workflow while still providing useful alerts and stops of scaring your users.

Seconded. I almost shat myself a couple of times when the calendar reminder went off in my hands.

Well, it does say 'alarm', and if you aren't 'alarmed' by it, I don't think it is doing its job. ;)
