The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Are you getting many notifications from iPF?

    Hi all,

    In the last few days, I'm receiving many notifications from the iPF app as if someone posted in one of the thread I subscribed to. But each time, nothing was posted. I wonder if I am receiving these notifications simply because someone viewed the thread instead.

    This is happening on the iPad 1. I rebooted, rechecked the notification settings, etc... Sometimes I can get up to 10 notifications from the same thread.

    It started to do that a few days ago...

    The issue has been reported to the forum administrators. Not sure what's happening but it's pretty widespread.

    Yep it's been doing it to mine. Is there a way to turn off the notifications from the app?

    In your ipad settings. Settings / Notifications / IPF. Turn them all off, if you wish.

    Hi, I believe there is a similar thread dealing with this issue started by dmlaty on Oct 26. Just to let you know that I have been having the same problem on my ipad3 and even though I have altered the settings not to receive notifications, I kept receiving numerous of the same together with pop ups. It became so annoying that I eventually deleted the ipad app and am now waiting till the matter is resolved. As pointed out, the administrators are aware and I am sure they will sort it soon.
    Best of luck, I still love my ipad!

    Yeah, it's been happening to me, too. I turned off the notifications, starting with the sound. My iPad was pinging constantly.
