One thing thats bugged me for ages is that when an email comes in, if you read it on the mac, it does not get marked as read on the iPhone/ipad or vice versa. Seems to have no similar problems with iMessages, just email.
So, is this finally fixed in iOS 8? or do we still have to open the mail app to clear down the unread badge.
I think that may depend on how your email is set up. If you're using POP3 (does anyone actually use that anymore?) then it doesn't have any way of syncing read messages. If you're using IMAP or ActiveSync or most of the other protocols then it should sync automatically. I've had no problems with this on iOS 7 and my multiple devices. Also, make sure that you have your email set to push (or pull at regular intervals)... if it's not updating your email in the background then it won't know that anything's been read until you manually update it.
That said, though, something is definitely broken in iOS 8 beta 1 as it does not seem to clear the badge or lock screen notifications when you read email on another device now. But like I said, I believe that's a beta issue as it has always worked properly for me with previous versions of the OS.
Funny you should say that, as it was always my understanding that this is by design. I am talking about apple email and it is push email.
I am surprised it works for you as it is generally accepted that this is a 'feature' and there is even an apple support page on the subject explaining that the read flag will not be cleared on other devices and it is not an error.
I wonder how its managed to work for you before? Not too optimistic that iOS8 finally sorts this though. I was hoping it would with the new emphasis on cross device compatibility now - especially as you can compose an email across devices is it too much for it to know you have read one too?
How are you using fleksy keyboard? Or are you talking about the app?
