Push notifications are sent to the device similar to SMS. Up until now Tapatalk has used Pull notifications, ie the app polls the forum periodically depending on your settings and then downloads anything new.

Pushes tend to be quicker, usually almost instant. Push also uses less data and less battery.

TWhat we're discussing here about the push notifications appears to be server based config and not a client app issue as long as your client is relatively recent. I've got push updates on my Android app since I think I've owned the smartphone app.

Tapatalk push notifications are currently on iOS only and in beta for Android. Both very recent. It does require the forum-side plug in to be upgraded.

I get notifications for both subscriptions and PMs. It's almost definitely not been updated for the new push notifications though.
