Hello. I apologize in advance if this is a basic or frequently answered question, but after some Googling I can't seem to find a solution to this question.
Since upgrading to the newest Kitkat 4.4, none of my app push-notifications have been working; emergency weather reports, Tumblr, Instagram, and, most critically, no Etsy or Paypal notifications. Every once in a day or two - seemingly randomly - ALL of my missed notifications will pop up in a raucous rapid-firing of notification sounds. I assume this is a connection issue, but it was never a problem prior to updating Android.
