    Hopefully that makes sense.

    Say I get a message on facebook. I get the notification on my phone along with the badge on the icon. I then am on my laptop, check the message and good to go. However, it's still a notification on my phone and the badge is still there.

    No way for the notification and badge to go away even though I already checked it online?

    Not sure if this is the case with emails as well (same scenario where you check it online but it's still up as a notification on your phone)

    Eh, it usually goes away in a couple of mins/hours for emails. With Facebook, it's sporadic. It goes away usually once you open the app for a sec, then close it again.

    You have to open the app to make it go away. It sucks like that.

    All Apps are the same.

    The app can only change the badge count when it is opened.

    I get game requests and get a badge but the requests don't show up on Phone only computer. Usually have to deny the game request for it to go away.
