    Hi there--I see that you're still having trouble finding your threads you have posted in. Whenever you post a comment in a thread, you will automatically subscribe to it. If you are using the app, look below and see the bookmark icon called "subscribed." That will take you to your subscriptions.

    You won't have anymore notifications if you have opened your subscription threads that are active. Once you have read all your subscriptions, that number badge goes away.

    Perhaps you have missed a page. Until you have viewed all the thread your notification number will not cancel to 'blank'. I did it too at first.

    Yes, as soon as you've viewed the new post in a subscribed thread, the notification number will disappear.

    I wanted to reply to the thread about the flash player but every time I tapped the curved arrow I got Unsubscribe from thread or refresh. What should I do to reply to a thread that's not directed tome?

    Threads about Flash on the iPad are usually closed fairly quickly. This is why you didn't see a reply link in the menu.this is what you see when you attempt to post on a closed thread.

    image-3887119322.jpgAs you can see, the drop down menu shows exactly what you described, except that I'm not subscribed to this thread about Flash.

    If you want to mark up with what's showing on your iPad screen, yes. And that is the most common use here. ;)

    You can use any photo in the photos app to use with Skitch, it doesn't have to be a screenshot. I've used photos I took while outside to annotate with Skitch.

    As scifan pointed out - you can "Skitch" on any photo that is in your Photo app. Quite a handy little app...
