When I have commented on a post/deal and someone replies directly to me or references my post, I am never aware of it and cannot read them because this function doesn't exist on the Android app. When will this be available? It really takes away from the overall usefulness of slick deals and at times has caused me to stop using it.

Thanks for the feedback. We do currently have 'Forum Notifications' - turn these on and when someone quotes you in a reply, you are notified. Additionally, we will be adding the ability to send and receive PMs in both the Android and iOS apps. Stay tuned!

I checked the setting above and I have it turned on, as I always have, so it does not work on my device

You should have received a push notification for this message. Just confirming you did not. If so, we will investigate.

Do you receive any Slickdeals notifications on your device? I'm wondering if possibly you could check your device settings and verify that you have notifications enabled on the device level.

no I do not get any notifications from this app. I already checked to make sure the notification box was checked under the app under settings before I started this post. I used to get them using the original app but once I downloaded the new one I stopped getting them.

Okay, that is really odd! Wondering if you can try logging out of the app, then logging back in again to see if that resolves the issue. Meanwhile we are looking into it from our end.

I just logged out and back in again using Google plus. I will let you know if anything changes. thanks for working on it. It would save me a lot of time not having to lookup comments and see if there are replies

Okay, digging deeper. I also get them irregularly; it is a difficult issue for us to reliably reproduce but we are working on it. I'll update here when I have additional information, thanks for your patience.

Ha! Of course you did.. So odd, we're investigating why these appear to trigger irregularly.
