I've just created the tag since I didn't any push related tag to make a question.

After that I have discovered the tag that says:

An action of notifying something from an App or Game installed in phone.

In my understand those are two different things.

Notifications: that litle bar that appear when an app want to call your atention like make a checkin, ask you to drink water and something like this. They just works with background tasks enabled or when the app is in the foreground.

Push-Notifications: Notifications received from a server to do something in the app, like a comment in Facebook or a new article in WPAlerts.

Should we merge then? Or perhaps in some places notifications were incorrectly used?


I think they are two very different things and should not be merged.
