Mobile notifications on Android News and updates

Hello all,

We are currently working on adding mobile notifications, which will only work with Android devices for now. These notifications will replace email alerts for the most part.

What will you be notified of?
- New messages
- New comments
- New likes
- New friend requests
- New posts in forum topics you subscribed to

This feature is currently opt-in only and it is in beta (which means there could still be bugs). Would you like to try it out and give your feedback? Contact me or post a reply.

Thanks! :)

Yes that's a great idea as I had to rely on email for notifications. I'm untested in beta testing for this feature.
Thanking you,

Biskup and lisasil94 are you still experiencing the same issue you mentioned? I can't reproduce it on my phone.

I do get notification in the app if opened, but if I close the app, it doesn't show any notifications like for instance whatsapp (for Android at least) does, with a small dot next to the application. But maybe that's a bridge to far haha. App works nice tho ^^
