    For some reason hooks does not show in my notification center. The only notification I see is the badge number on the app itself.

    Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    Ok. So if i open the app first they wont' be in the notification center?

    And how about having the notifications show on my apple watch?

    That's not happening either? Do I have to install the app on the watch to get notifications?

    Thanks.

    Yes, right, once you open the app, notifications get removed from notification center because they considered read.

    Sure, when you receive a notification it's shown on your Apple Watch.

    Hooks also has a Glance where you can sea how many unread notifications you have in each category and you can also use Hooks Watch App to browse latest notifications.

    Also all notifications are shown in the native notification interface of the watch.

    Great thanks.
    one more (hopefully last question). Do i have to enable notifications to "show on lock screen" on my iphone for the notifications to show on my apple watch?

    Sure :) You actually can choose what notifications to show on your Apple Watch from the watch app on the iPhone, I don't think you need to have this enabled.

    Thanks

    I just found by changing settings that you do have to allow hooks to show notifications on the iphone lock screen to be able to have notifications show on the apple watch. If you don't allow it to show notifications on the lock screen there is not an option in the apple watch app on the phone to allow hooks to show notifications.

    Somehow apple has tied lock screen notifications in with apple watch notifications.

    Hooks is a staple for me now... so many awesome notifications in one spot that it's difficult to find something that isn't included. :)

    This is a great app, but I don't know what the IAP it keeps pushing me to subscribe to is actually for. If it were a one off payment I would have bought it but as a subscription I don't want to.
