I thought notifications had been improved in iOS 7 with a design to clear once across devices.


For example, let's say I get a FaceTime call.  I decide to answer it on my Mac.  Now both my iPhone and my iPad will notify me that I missed a FaceTime call (which is silly in itself, because I didn't miss it... I answered it on my Mac).


To clear the notifications I must open FaceTime on my iPhone.  Go to the Recents tab (I think I actually have to switch tabs for this to work).  Then repeat for the iPad.  I have to do this every time I get a FaceTime call.


Same with other apps.  If I get a notification about a comment on a Facebook post.  I have to open Facebook on my iPhone.  View the comment.  Then repeat for the iPad.


I thought I could just clear the notification from the Notification Center, but that doesn't clear the notification icon on the app iteself.


I want the notifications.  I just want them once, and I want to clear them easily without having to open and close apps on every device I own.


Has anyone else found an easy way to manage this?

iPad, iOS 7.0.3

    The user is notified by 1) the Notification Center and 2) the app itself.


    If you feel that this should be handled differently, you may want to mention this to Apple via feedback:


    EDIT: By the way, if you do not want a numbered badge icon, you can turn that off in Settings > Notification Center > select the app > Badge App Icon = Off
