I got the app Baby Story for my iPod Touch a while ago, and then decided I didn't like it and deleted it. Part of the reason I got rid of it was because it would pop up random messages with things like, "Your baby is hungary!" The app appears to be completely deleted, and I can't find any reference to it on the iPod anywhere, but I'll still get random notifications with things like, "Your baby is sick." Is there a way, short of reformatting the iPod, to stop these messages?

Removing an app should disable all of the Push Notifications. Try rebooting your iPod, and making sure that iTunes did not re-install it.

Also, you can try disabling all Notifications, then -re-enabling them.

Maybe post a screenshot of the message. You may have another app installed (mBox for example) that displays messages from apps that send emails as well. (of course this is just a far fetched scenario).

Try going into the "notifications" settings in your iPod's settings to see if u can the app listed there. If so then just turn off it's notification privileges.

  • I looked in there, but I didn't see the app. I thought about reinstalling the app and then trying to turn off the notifications, but I'm afraid I'll just get stuck with twice as many. – Nathan Friesen Jul 30 '11 at 5:10
  • Reinstalling would probably be the way to go. Then you can block the application all together and remove it without a problem. If this doubles the amount of notifications, you should report it as a bug to Apple. – bouke Jul 30 '11 at 18:34
  • Thanks for the responses. Apparently, what I needed to do was ask about it here. Since I posted about it I don't think I've had any notifications from the application. – Nathan Friesen Dec 19 '11 at 3:50
