What notifications are automatically switched on when I sign up to the app?
You will automatically receive notifications when a friend sends an urgent question (15min time limit to answer.) When a comment is left for one of the questions you have asked, and when you receive friend requests. Notification settings are shown under “settings” on the main menu screen and can be adjusted to how you like.
Why when sometimes I have notifications of friends sending questions, I try to answer the question but it is no longer there?
Notifications will stay until you have tapped on them regardless of how long they have been there for. If a friend has sent a question and set the time for it to be answered in 1hr, and you have not answered within that hour, the question will disappear from your “received” screen which is why sometimes you will tap on the notification and there will be nothing there.
Sometimes I will get notifications for questions, friend requests etc but there will be nothing showing, even if I tap on the notification as soon as it is received.
You will need to refresh the page. On IOS move from 1 screen and then back. On Android, swipe down from the top of your screen.
