    theres no tweaks or hacks you can do make it work? no one has ever made it work, ever?

    are you sure you are using the android version of the usatoday app, and not the one that was made for bb10?

    Well, the largest dependency is with the method by which the android app is receiving push notifications. If it's Google cloud messaging, it won't work, no matter how much you tweak or hack.

    How do i check? And let's say some of them apps don't use Google cloud, then what's the next step?

    You could decompile the apk and go through the code... or simply test notifications while you have the app open . If the notifications appear when the app is open, there's hope. If they don't, then they won't work.

    You know what's strange is i recently downloaded an android app through snap for some other forum i use. And when i get a reply to a post, i get a notification, even when the app is closed. And when i press on the notification the app opens as if it was designed just for this phone. Weird.

    Several android apps provide notifications in the hub.
