The notifications won’t go away after you have opened the app and reviewed all !
We are looking into this, it is likely related to the fact that in the latest update, we are no longer deleting articles from the Notification center on the phone. We are going to be moving away from using the notification tab/inbox in the app in the redesigned version (coming later this year) in favor of using the built in notification center in iOS. Appreciate your feedback
We changed the logic of notifications, and no longer auto-delete items when clicked from the notification center. I will look into whether these changes affected the icon.
We are about to make a release to fix this, it will be in slow rollout, but if you uninstall and reinstall the app on Sunday you will likely get the new release.
