Google Voice not pushing lowering badge number any more?

    The Google Voice app does badges differently than most. The badges for most apps will tell you how many notifications you've received since last opening the app. Google Voice will tell you how many unread items are in your inbox. So even immediately after closing the app, it can still have a badge (much like Mail). However, ever since iOS 5, it doesn't work as well as it used to. It will still go up if you receive a new message without having to open the app, but it used to also go down if you responded to an unread message from, say, your computer. But now the badge number won't update and go down unless you actually open the app.

    Since this coincided exactly with the release of iOS 5, I'm guessing it was an iOS change, and not a Google change. Does anyone have any idea why this would be? It's way less useful this way.

    I felt that I explained it more clearly here and that the other thread might get passed over for having a less clear first post. I didn't see an easy way to delete the other thread, so it's still there. I'm sorry if having two threads was bothersome, I hardly see why it's a big deal though.
