Viewing Notifications On Your Mobile Device
The Time To Pet application may send you push notifications to inform you about a new message or information about a visit. This article will help clarify where and how these notifications will appear on your mobile device. Notifications behave differently on Android and iOS devices.

Notifications on iOS Devices
iOS notifications are viewed and managed using the Notification Center on your phone. The Notification Center can be accessed when the phone is locked or by pulling down from the center of the screen.
Time To Pet does not currently support the red dot notification count on the app icon, so once the notification disappears, you will need to view your Notification Center to access it.
