Receiving Push Notifications on Your iOS Device (iOS)

How can I get mentions and direct messages pushed to my mobile device?

To enable push notifications on iOS, open Twitterrific's in-app settings from the sidebar. From there, tap Notifications to open the push notifications section, where you can enable the feature.

If push notifications are successfully enabled, you'll be presented with a number of new options, which can be seen below.


Here you can select which types of push notifications you'd like to receive for your account: direct messages (blue diamond), replies (orange diamond), mentions (orange diamond), favorites (star), retweets (looping arrows), new followers (green checkmark), and quoted tweets (speech bubble). You can also enable or disable the use of emoji in push notifications by selecting the "Show Color Symbols" setting. If you want to test to make sure that enabled push notifications are working, you can tap the Send Test Notification button at the bottom of the screen

When you enable push notifications on your device, you may be presented with an alert message notifying you that push notification slots are currently full. Since we'll be using our own servers to send out push notifications, we'll be rolling out push notifications to accounts on a first-come-first-served basis. If you aren't able to turn on push notifications for your account right away, don't despair! Wait for a day or two and try enabling them again to see if more slots have been opened up.

I have push notifications enabled, but the badge on the application icon isn't clearing. How can I fix this?

First, make sure you are using Twitterrific version 5.2.1 or later. If you're still using 5.2 you will see badges on Twitterrific but will not be able to clear them.

If you're using Twitterrific 5.2.1 or later, but the application's badges still won't clear, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off push notifications in Twitterrific's in-app settings.
  2. Turn off push notifications for Twitterrific in your device's Notification Center settings.
  3. Restart your device.
  4. Re-enable push notifications for Twitterrific in the in-app settings and in Notification Center.

This should reset push notifications and badges for Twitterrific, and they should start clearing normally when you open the app.
