What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have been using the Stack Exchange App (iOS) for a little while now and have come to really appreciate what it brings to the table. But I have found one useful feature that does not seem to be implemented into application: the ability to receive notifications for a specific tag.

I feel this could be extremely useful in so many ways. The main reason I would like this feature is to follow certain tags that tend to be not widely used, for example the tag diablo-3 on Arqade.

Questions are not all that common for this tag and although most do get answered fairly quickly I would like to know when a new question has been asked for this tag to give some input of my own. Instead I find the question days after when any more information seems not all that relevant anymore. Even if I have nothing to offer for the question I would know that the questions has been asked and could return later to take a look at the answers and learn something new.

I understand that certain sites (SO) could cause a few problems for users with spam of questions on certain tags but that would be the users choice by turning on these notifications.

The main question is: Does this feature already exist within the application and I have just overlooked it?

If not is this a feature that could be useful to other users of the application and all Stack Exchange sites?

I'm 99% sure this doesn't exist, and I would love it to! Most of my SO activity is following specific tags. – Chris Feb 24 at 10:23
It's not within the application, but you can set up an email digest. i.stack.imgur.com/blZQq.png – George Duckett Feb 25 at 9:39
@GeorgeDuckett - That can only be a daily thing though, right? Not instant push notifications? – Chris Feb 25 at 18:58
@chris, It's not instant push but I think you get the option of changing the frequency. – George Duckett Feb 25 at 19:12
