Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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 '15 at 10:23
It's not within the application, but you can set up an email digest. – George Duckett Feb 25 '15 at 9:39
@GeorgeDuckett - That can only be a daily thing though, right? Not instant push notifications? – Chris Feb 25 '15 at 18:58
@chris, It's not instant push but I think you get the option of changing the frequency. – George Duckett Feb 25 '15 at 19:12
