    Is there anyway to disable the little numbers that pop up on the app stores spring board icon?

    Concur with the above, but:

    Settings / Notifications -> off

    Edit: Doesn't do it for the AppStore, obviously...

    You can go to Settings / Notifications -> and look for the app you want to remove the bubble (badge) and then open the app under the Settings / Notifications -> and turn off the BADGE.

    for those that don't fully get it, go to settings, then notifications, scroll down to the app you have an issue with and

    but it will go away if you access the app normally and read the notification(s).

    with the app store, it would usually mean that you have updates, and if you update them it will go away.

    I'm not sure the above is fully accurate. I have just now, for the first time, found a "1" on my iPad Forum App icon, that isn't going away. I just returned from Notifications, and all of them for this App are turned off. What's with that? If there is a setting on the main iPad Forums site settings that I can reset to keep those numbers from showing up, I'll do that. I haven't found a way to manipulate that setting from this app yet.

    ((EDIT)) I just discovered that my number bubble was because of a PM. I looked at the PM and answered, and the number is gone now. (Still says nothing about the Notifications be turned off for this app, and still a number appears).

    There is also a tweak called "BadgeClear" that does what it says. :)
