    Am I just missing it? Is there a place on the iPhone or iPad app that shows the "alerts" like you see on the web-based version of mp? (i.e., likes, replies, status changes, etc)?

    I know it's missing in the Android app, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's missing in the iApp too. :(

    There to my knowledge has not been any way to see the actual alerts - while you can on the iPhone get a push notification of alerts in general I know of no way to see the actual list ala the web version.

    The only place I use the web-based version is at work! :)

    Just to add...there's no way to see alerts on the iPhone app either. This would be a great feature to add...and hopefully the BB software developers are already on it :)

    The app is a branded version of Forum Runner. It does not have an Alerts feature. In addition to its support for thread subscriptions, the app also offers push notification for subscribed threads and private conversations.

    I've been receiving an alert every couple of hours now on the iPhone Milepoint app -- the same one over and over. Can't find a way stop it other than disabling MP app alerts altogether.

    Thanks, I didn't see that thread and I even searched for iPhone. The pointer is appreciated. I did turn off notifications for the Milepoint app and that stopped it but I didn't want to have to do that. Anyhow, as long as I see people are aware of it I'm sure it will eventually be fixed.

    Yes, I have been getting the samenalertsmover and over and over. I think I may have managed to turn everything off though. Don't ask me how...

    I turned off notifications as per the instructions from the other thread linked to this one. But it did not help. Just a data point for those of you who are working on this :). It's annoying but I like this forum and app too much to get rid of it! I'll just tough it out... No biggie.

    Did you see my post in that thread? Simply turning off Notifications did not work for me ... I had to turn off the View in Lock Screen to have it stop popping up.

    Do you want us to send you an alert notification this afternoon to remind you to do that?
    :p
