    Notifies the wrong app and clicking the notification doesn't take you to the app just opens amazon store.

    I haven't seen the notification in months. I do a test run so I know it works but a day or two later, nothing is showing up

    I use this app, even though it doesn't show the app icon or description in the notification.
