    Aight Fierce Boarders -


    Two new big enhancements that are being worked on.

    First - If you have the TapATalk app installed we can push out big announcements in the cheer world to your phone! When there is huge breaking news we can now let everyone know instantly who as the app.

    Second - TapATalk is working on adding push notifications if you get a new alert, a shimmy, or private message. You would be able to receive updates like you do on twitter.

    Noting new right now. Curious why anyone wouldnt want it. It is so much easier to use for the board on your phone.

    Are these notifications going to actually direct to anything? I got the one this morning testing the new system, but it didn't show up in my alerts in the tapatalk app or anything. I tend to gloss over what an alert actually says to see where it takes me, if that makes sense.

    Yes. I can direct it to a specific thread or to open the app at a certain thread.

    And if we don't want alerts pushed to our phone (no offense, I just have too many alerts as it is) how would be able to disable that functionality?

    Tapatalk already has some notifications. You need to exit the fierce board forum and go into the settings and there's an option to not get push notifications. Where the settings are located might be different for the Android app, which I see you're using, but the option should be in there.

    Just disable alerts to the app. Board wide news will be infrequent.

    Also fixing the twitter feed so that the hot thread alerts will FINALLY have the links to them. Thats been a PITA!
