I have a similar problem with CardStar. It displays an icon badge that I would like to disable, yet there is not setting in the app to disable it, and it doesn't appear in the "Notifications" section of the Settings app either. Since badges and notifications are supposed to be centrally managed in the Settings app now, I consider it Evil that an app can display a badge and not have it be subject to user settings. Is this app exploiting a API loophole or just legacy behavior that will go away? At least I won't need CardStar any more once I get iOS 6 and the Passbook app.
