[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Android Flickr app

Latium says:

The ''improved'' notifications seems to have a knock on effect on the app on my Android mobile.

Am not getting updated notifications, have checked all settings, and they are correct.

Anyone else having this problem with notifications?

I have not noticed much change on my Android phone, but I don't use it much for photography. Use it mainly to check into Flickr for the basics.
Certainly Flickr looks and behaves differently among my phone, tablet, and PCs. Screen size seems to cause variations.
Or, it's just my imagination.

I have stopped the app and restarted it several times with no success, and have even uninstalled the app and reloaded it, but to no avail.

Let's hope Flickr respond, but thanks for offering your experiences..

It does behave odd, your right, but this lack of notifications is a new oddness :-)

Thanks for responding.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We do not currently have a report on missing notifications for Android devices. I will be emailing you all to gather more information and get examples of the notifications that are not being received.

Just as a note, the forum is for member to member assistance. If you need assistance from the support team, we ask that you contact us directly here:

I'm getting notifications, but not entirely grouped. All faves or comments for a photo were grouped in single notifications before, but now I'll get several separate notifications.

Today I had a notification of one comment, the first for four days, BUT, I see on my laptop there are many others!

Chaos or what!

Thanks everyone for the examples and providing additional information.

We are looking into this further, in the meantime, may I have everyone double check that they have set their preferences in the new notification center on a web browser on your mobile device or desktop.

This will ensure the notifications will reflect correctly in the app here:
www.flickr.com/account/email

I will report back here with any updates.

Sounds like you are using a third-party application ("Flickr Schedulr") to interact with Flickr. This is not usually something that Flickr staff can help with directly. You might get lucky and find fellow users here who can help. But most likely you will need to contact developers of that application to get the best help with this problem.

Since june 2019 it is not working correctly, but the application hasn't changed since 2017. The problem can only be on flickr's side...

Even if technically true, unfortunately that's not really a realistic/accurate way to describe the situation. The change might certainly be on Flickr's side, but the reality of application development is that when an app developer (such as Flickr) provides APIs for third parties to use, the app developer sometimes has to make changes to those APIs. But then (again, being realistic, not idealistic) it must be up to the third party developers to perform the necessary updates/maintenance of their own applications to keep things in working order.

Your profile page says that you are a programmer. I'm frankly surprised that you would have such intolerance of this relatively universal fact of the industry.
