Same here, FWIW. Android 4.1.2 on Samsung Galaxy S3. No popups since 3.6, still unchnaged in 3.7.2. Also same as noted before, it *seems* it's trying to display them but the only visible activity is a short zoom out and in.

CU,

It's not an Android bug. If there is a bug, it's in the back-end. I don't get popups most of the time on iOS either. The situation is either 1) Perlin explained the situation incorrectly, 2) The situation is different now than when Perlin explained it before, or 3) The code is bugged and doesn't behave as the developers expect.

NOTICE: Popups and event radius notification

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:53 pm

At this time, the following are known and expected behavior related to popup notifications in the app. Please do not post about "issues" if they are the same as what is posted here. This is not specific to a version of the app as the popups are controlled by the servers.

  • If you receive a popup notification while in motion, then that is a Group Popup setting you have enabled in the App.
  • When stopped, expect the following:
    • Only 4 popups will appear
    • Popups for friends online will appear at this time
    • Popups for nearby nearby paid advertisements will appear at this time.
    • If you select to see events on your route only, the popups will be displayed up to 100 km away on your route.
    • If you have any other radius value selected, a popup will be displayed for events up to 10 km away.
