Unfortunately our iOS app will be removed from the app store sometime at the end of August. Apple is refusing to approve a new version of it because it is not significantly different than visiting the site in a browser. They are wrong because you currently can’t get notifications in a browser but you can with the app, but such is life and we have no recourse.
You do still have some options! If notifications on your phone are important to you I would recommend downloading the Discourse Hub app and adding NPN to it using this url: community.naturephotographers.network , the notifications are not as real time as the app was, but it’s something for the time being.
You can also simply visit the site in Safari and add it to your home screen by clicking the share button and select ‘add to home screen’. This currently will not give you notifications, but in the future Apple will be adding this feature.
We apologize for this inconvenience, but we simply have our hands tied by Apple until they add support for notifications.
