App notifications

In the last couple of days I've been getting notifications on the phone from the app, first I thought they were nice (letting me know who started to follow me etc.) but I'm starting to get annoyed by them because they're loud like reciving a message and also try to "motivate" me to keep using the app (like maintain my streak). I was wondering if there is a way to turn that off?

Thank you! I was looking at it but didn't realize I needed to click on the phone image next to the envelope one. I clicked the "Practice reminder" off now, I really hope it will stop these notifications about maintaining the streak and go learn some more lessons stuff, it really bugs me when someone tells me to go study :P

There are too many languages I want to learn. Hebrew is among them. Why must this world have so many languages?

I think the better question is, why must we have so little time to learn so many languages? :P I have so many languages I want to learn that it's somewhat ridiculous! And I'm only on my first :'(

Agreed! I want to learn Russian soon. I've started on the beginning of it, but nothing beyond the very basics. However, I'm pretty far in German.

For Android, you can press and hold on the icon until a menu pops up. From there you can clear the notification.

I have the opposite question: I was getting notifications, which was great, because they reminded me to log in and then one of them said, "looks like these don't work, we'll stop" but I don't want them to stop, they are working, and they're still on in my Settings App.
