What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

It would be very helpful to receive notifications via the Android app whenever a new posted question is tagged with one of our favourite tags. An option could be placed in the settings menu to toggle the feature on/off.

This will allow us to be immediately alerted to read and respond to new questions whenever we are, and even when we do not have the site open on the browser, or keeping the app open and continuously refreshing the list of new questions.

I mean, this is what phone apps do nowadays to keep users engaged right?

Perhaps a list of all our favourite tags on all sites could be displayed in a menu, and we can select only those we want notifications for.

I think this should be disabled for Stack Overflow, but I would not be opposed to having it enabled on smaller sites. –  Emrakul Aug 1 '13 at 2:52

I like this idea, except when you get to Stack Overflow (and probably SU and SF too), the amount of notifications would be insane... I suggest we allow fine tuned controls so that on we can choose to have the notifications be immdiate, 15 minutes, 1 hour, 12 hours, etc (aribtrary times, more options could be added or even user chosen times). This way one could have it so that smaller sites have the notification go off immediately but on larger sites it could be the users preference.
