comment Sparrow for Mac resets after quitting
I understand both of those things, but I've had Sparrow working fine for a long time under those conditions. I even installed it under those conditions. It crashed one day when adding a new account, and after that it started displaying the above issue. It MUST be possible to install it again, but for some reason there seems to be a file or setting somewhere that has been messed up. A reinstall of OSX I'm sure would fix the issue, but I don't really feel like doing that.

comment How can I turn off push notifications for individual apps in iOS 5?
I think you're reffering to iOS 4 and earlier. This is about ios 5.

@XAleXOwnZX that's not what the question says if you read it, I said "turn push off for that app". The title could probably be clearer, but anyway...

@XAleXOwnZX not all, I get mail and one or two others pushed. But really, I don't want a million "tagged in a Facebook photo" or "new content available for this app" notifications like I used to - I get enough mail/messages as it is!

I'm pretty sure that apps can only increment badge numbers outside of an app via a push notification or UILocalNotification (the second is something that gets set from within the app so couldn't relate to an online event). I'm also pretty sure that apps are not allowed to use fetch to get data in the background, the API doesn't allow it. There are only 7 allowed background tasks, and I'm sure that fetching mail isn't one of them (It's the Facebook Messenger app btw).

the difference was though that the app was never run between no badge being present and a badge popping up. The badge can't have been a local notification as it was related to an online event - hence it must have been push that incremented the badge number. I really can't see any other way the badge would be updated without push, as non Apple apps can't run code in the background. Unless I'm mistaken, it seems that push is still on.

Not so sure that this answer is correct now. The same app that I set to 'none' still received a badge notification without me opening it - which means that by clicking 'yes' to the original push notification notification (that's a mouthful..) it doesn't really seem to be possible to actually turn push off for that app, save from setting each individual setting to 'off'. For apps that I originally clicked 'no' to, the badges are still turned on, although push doesn't seem to work for them. Maybe I'm missing something, but this seems like pretty complicated and confusing behavior.

comment Why doesn't my new @me.com email address work?
This doesn't seem to be the problem. Have played around with associating/unassociating my Apple ID email and the iCloud email I created a few months ago... doesn't change anything. Thanks though :)

Thanks. It's not very intuitive IMO though. I guess it makes sense, but personally I think the title 'Push Notifications' rather than 'Alert Style' would make it a lot more intuitive for users.
