    Why does my badge show 30-40 notifications after just an hour or so? I can't find anything that would be triggering them. My notification settings are:

    I have tried everything, finally just turned off notifications in both app and iOS. A shame since I'd like to know about private messages etc.

    I'm not using the app, but there have been several times lately that I gotten notifications for posts I've already read.

    You could try TapaTalk. Several months back, notifications from the eiC app were all over the place. I turned them off and forgot about it. I got notifications from TapaTalk, but was using the eiC app for the site. I mostly use TapaTalk now for the dark theme. So at least for now, you could use the notifications from TapaTalk.

    @chris I am not getting any notifications or badges on the app. Is this going to be corrected with an upcoming update?

    Yep, there should be plenty of fixes coming. I just have to wait until Apple re-opens app submissions.

    There's a lot of disappointment and anger over the new TapaTalk update. It is bad. There's several threads going in the TapaTalk Community Forum. Users aren't being too kind. I don't like it for the blue strips across the screen. It's tacky and annoying. But I need the dark theme. This just looks weird to me. I may switch back to the eiC app with all its brightness. I'll wear shades. :cool:

    Thank you for the feedback on the new Tapatalk. Since we share their codebase, it's interesting to hear thoughts on 4.0. I've yet to venture to that build, but have noted your feedback.

    @chris has the app been updated? I don't see it listed in my recently updated, yet now I'm getting notifications.

    Not yet. There were some issues with Tapatalk that required a bit more work on my end. I'll try to get it done this week, if possible.

    So far we are getting notifications now, but what's odd is how are we now but we weren't before? :p

    I'm getting notifications from this app not tapatalk. They started a few days ago, just like an update. Weird.

    I updated a few things at Apple, which likely kicked them into gear. I've submitted a new version of the app to the App Store. More on that in the official app release thread.

    Higher count for the app notification badge is occurring again. To others, I love the app and will continue to use it. I do use the actual website though when I am on my laptop.

    No matter what is correct, but I don't like seeing a high badge count when I only have one notification. :p

    Turn the badge off! I use as few badges as possible. I find having too many annoying.

    I think he wants it there, even if it's inaccurate.

    True, but what's odd is I didn't used to get badges on the app icon. Maybe my iPhone is cursed. :) I'll just deal with the inaccurate badge as it is sometimes humorous.
