Popping up

The app is great! It helps you know about all important things in NY!
But when I click on my notification it brings me to the app and when I press ok it it just keeps popping up!
Is there someway this could be fixed?

Needs one more thing to be fixed

The app is overall great, but if you do not go into the app for a couple of days, you get pop-ups in the app of every notification you haven’t seen yet. The pop-up has one button that says OK and another saying Details. The pop-ups prevent you from navigating to notifications that you want to read. The developers need to introduce a Dismiss All button or just eliminate the pop-ups and rely on users having notifications appear on their banner instead.

Best app NYC has published

My 5-star rating is certainly graded on a curve, for city-developed apps. But it actually works and is very helpful at times, as long as the people issuing the alerts are thoughtful about what they push out. There are other apps for traffic and transit issues, but this is a good one to have for those odd alerts that you’ll be glad to have when you need it. If you live or work in NYC, it’s worth installing.
