Anyone else having trouble with this since iOS8?

The facebook app has allways had problems but this one started to happen since iOS8. Previously it would remove the badge on the app icon and the notification on my ipad if I checked it on my phone (and the other way around).
Since iOS8 it doesn't. now I have to check both devices so the notification isn't shown on my start screen and to get rid of the badge.
It works correctly for other apps, like iMessage. it's just the facebook app. any setting I'm missing or does it work like this for everyone else too nowaydays?

my devices are iphone 6 and ipad mini, both with the latest updates.

Noticed this too in recent weeks - check and clear notifications on web, phone still displays the badge hours later. Annoying!

Mine NEVER has... and I've had an iPhone since iPhone 3G. Always have to go in the app to clear notifications I've read on other devices.

Agree with the above....for as long as i can remember on my iPad and iPhone if i view notifications on one the badge on the other doesnt clear until i open the app and it realises there are none.
