Guardian app hasn't started notifying users of corrections to pieces

Published: 11th Jun 2015

Last week we wrote about a notification sent to mobile users of a correction from the Guardian news app. We thought the app might have started notifying readers when an article had been corrected—which would be a great way of making sure readers are aware of those corrections rather than relying on corrections columns.

But we've found out from the Guardian it was a correction to a previous push notification, rather than the article itself.

We suggested they—and other news apps—could think about implementing this kind of feature in the future.
