Push notifications are apparently a big deal on iOS applications.  Nearly every app I download asks me for permission to push notifications to me. Normally I just say yes - I want twitter and messenger notifications.  So when the PBS Newshour app asked me, I was like "sure, why not."

So far all I've received are TSA-related notifications, which, given all the coverage, I don't know that I need another device keeping me up to date on the drama of security theater playing out. So I decided to turn them off. It took me a bit to figure out where to do this because I assumed the application would control it, not the settings for iOS.


Apparently I don't think like a mac.
