deal alerts sync...?

Am I the only person who notices that all deal alerts you set up on the site aren't carried over to mobile? It makes absolutely no sense to have to set up every deal alert a minimum of two times. What's more, I can't delete them together either so removing alerts is problematic.

I am experiencing the same issue with the android app. I've created several alerts in the app, then I edited some of them on the desktop site to make them more precise. Now, all of the ones that I edited have disappeared from the app. Although it does say the following on the desktop site\Deal Alert settings when you hold the cursor over the 'Mobile' notification method option: "You will be notified on all the devices that are registered with Slickdeals Mobile". I guess time will tell if I will have to recreate all of my deal alerts in the app.

Hey Guys - Are those deal alerts set up in multiple forums? Currently the app does not display deal alerts set up in multiple forums; we are resolving that in an upcoming release (and apologies it isn't there already), so you will be able to both view and edit, but want to first determine if that is indeed the issue for your cases. If it is not, we'll keep digging. Let me know - thanks!

I just changed one of my deal alerts to a single forum and sure enough, it's now on the mobile app. Hope you fix it soon, I really like the site and the app.

Yes, that appears to be the issue, then. Mine are always set for 2 forums. Also, is there any way to change the behavior where the app subscribes me to every thread I comment on? It's really annoying to have to go onto the PC later and remove a ton of thread subs every time I'm commenting with the app. I can't fathom why this would be default behavior

Yes, very sorry for the inconvenience guys. We are fixing this so that you will have the ability in the app to both view and edit deal alerts set in multiple forums. I do apologize; we will have this resolved in an upcoming release, most likely within the next month. We have several releases slated before then that address other issues in the app - we are moving incrementally towards a great app so thanks for the patience and stay tuned.
