Recently, I've entered SE desktop site for first time. I've seen the site notifies you when you lose/win reputation, when an edit has been accepted... etc.

Why do only answers and reply notifications appear in the notification bar of the SE Android app?

Why don't all the notifications appear in the notification bar?

  • I don't understand the Q. Could you be more specific?

  • The SE app for Android is nowhere near perfection. So it's possible that it has very limited features right now.

  • @NVZ Okay, now I understand. Maybe in the future, the SE app will be full featured as the web version, right?

    If you're asking about reputation change feature request, then it has been asked: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/202512/…. No response from the devs though Jan 27, 2016 at 11:18
  • @AndrewT. That's what I was searching. Thanks!

Android spits out notifications for things in the Inbox, but not Achievements. It took me a while to figure this out as well, but anything that appears in this tab:

will result in a notification. Anything in this tab:

Will not.
