I have this app installed on both my iPad and iPhone. I have set it to notify me when my gf leaves work. However it sends the notification only to my iPad and not my iPhone. Is this a bug? I should be receiving this notification on both my devices.

It only works on the device you set it on.

And it only works Every Time, if she sets up the notifications to be sent to you. You will only be notified once if you set it up.

I set it on my iPhone, but the notifications are received on my iPad.

Could this be like iMessage, where you need to have the phone number checked in order to receive the alerts on the iPhone? iPads only receive via email address.

This is a feature I've always thought would be nice but it used to draw a ton of battery since it constantly pings so I had to shut it down. Did battery usage improve at all since then?
