We have shown so far how to customize the settings, so you can choose the currency and the unit of measurement you want the price to represent. But if you are following the price on Gold on regular basis, don’t you think that is a hassle that you have to open the application every time you want to see it? We agree with you!
This is when the coolest feature of iGold+ comes to play. The third screen in the settings section allows you to set the price of Gold in the badge of the application icon; so you no longer need to open the app, by just taking a look at the number in the badge in the spring board, you will have an idea of the price.
There are a couple of limitations here. First is that the price in the badge can only show an integer number, so we are rounding to the closest integer number. That means if the price is USD 1544.2 we will show 1544 in the badge. It is not perfect, but it is a very good approximation. The second limitation is that the badge number cannot be bigger than 9,999. This is not a problem for the vast majority of the currencies we offer, but you cannot see in the icon badge the price of Gold in ounces in Mexican Pesos or Japanese Yen, for example.
Regardless of those two limitations, our initial users seem to like this feature very much. We can see that almost all users enable this function. And how often do we update this price you might ask? It is almost real time, with a delay no bigger than 15 minutes!
Warning: you need to enable push notifications or else there is no way we can send you the price to the badge of the icon. This is how the price is shown in the badge of the icon:
