late Notifications

121 22 November 27, 2016 at 07:38 AM
I use the SlicksDeals app on multiple iOS devices and have always received notifications for deals much later than when the deal actually hits the app/website.
Often the notification comes (many) hours later after I have already seen the deal active.

What's the deal with that?!? (See what I did there? Lol)

Occasionally push notifications are delayed due to the volume in which they are processed. We are aware of this issue and working to resolve - thanks for your patience!

I doubt they will fix it. this has been an ongoing issue for a long time now. often I get notified about a post 20 minutes after I already viewed it through the app. this is on Android so it's not just an iOS issue. the app is just so far behind the times it's not even funny.

My smartphone alert came in more than 12 hours late yesterday. When it came, 4 emails came together. The worst was the deal was over.

This is still a major problem on iOS. Almost makes notifications worthless. They are always 2 - 24 hours late.

Same recently with all of the deals. Better to just pull up your app when you have your phone around, but why even have notifications then?

I've noticed this problem occurring for the last few weeks (never happened before that). It seems to be getting worse. The notifications are more than a day late now. I might as well just turn them off completely unless they fix this asap.
