    Do notifications work for anyone else. I've been using it all day and have yet to have any of my @ messages get to me.

    The only reason I don't care that much is because I got it when it was free. Had I paid for the app, I would have been very disappointed.

    Well, I paid the 1.99 and I'm going to email the devs and ask do they plan on fixing the issues.

    Its really an awesome Twitter app, the best if they fix notifications.

    I had emailed in the past. I was just told to delete and then re-add my Twitter account, which didn't help at all.

    Dev never bothered emailing me when I told him his "solution" didn't work.

    Sigh, I guess I should start checking the forums before I buy apps. I had Carbon, but they bailed on WP, now I get Carbon part 2.

    I like rowi. It has always worked great. Notifications work, and so do updates.

    Gleek not only fails on notifications, but tapping refresh does nothing to refresh my timeline. I have to close and reopen the app.

    I use to use Rowi, but I found it to be too slow loading. The more I use gleek, the more small bugs im seeing.

    I just got this email from devs:

    Anytime a user has had this its been phone-specific. Do this: in the app turn notifications OFF then ON again. Restart your phone, and wait up to 30 minutes. Don't use the app during this time just to make sure you have new activity but make sure you give yourself a message or mention to test.

    Let us know! :)

    rowi has always been faster than Gleek for me, and I follow something like 640 people, so that's a lot of tweets.

    Well that didn't work for me. I only follow about 120 people. I'm not going to bother emailing the devs back. Sigh

    I just did what you posted from the instructions in the email. I'll let you know if it works for me.

    Well I now get icons on the tile that show @ count and DM count and the time flips and says "no nee mentions", but I had a friend send me a @ message and it didn't report it.

    I have icons too, but they don't show anything. I got a message and rowi notified me. Gleek didn't.

    I don't see why device model matters either.

    You have a Focus, and I have a Lumia 900; neither of us gets notification of new messages in Gleek. :(

    I think they just blowing smoke with the "device" type garbage. I have a lumia 900 also, but I don't think it matters. It just don't work.

    Ok, So I've tried it on a Samsung Focus, HTC HD7, and a Nokia Lumia 900. Doesn't work on any of those devices. I guess you got to have a unlocked developers device for it to work correctly. LOL!

    I just tweeted the developer and also sent him a link to this thread. Let's see if he responds.

    Welp I've just had some "friendly" words with the dev on the front page. I'm done. Bad review left in the marketplace and I'm on to the next app. Good luck though.

    Here's the response I got on Twitter.
    glƏƏk! ‏@gleekthis

    @lak611 Was known bug resolved a long time ago, but due to App Hub problems it couldn't go live (them, not us). v1.14 fixes it, live soon.
    I will report here once the new version is available and let you know if it's fixed.

    Wow. That's a great response. Keep us updated. IDK why they didn't just state that in the email they sent me, instead of sending me on a wild goose chase.

    I don't know why either. If you read my conversation on Twitter, you'll see he told me the same thing as he told you in the email before finally telling me about the update.

    In any event, I'll post back here when the app gets updated.
