Better documentation for cancelLocalNotifications() on Android

See original GitHub issue

The documentation states that userInfo is iOS only, however, it states that you can use a userInfo dictionary as an argument for cancelLocalNotifications().

Could someone whose more familiar with this library update the documentation to clarify:

  • What does the argument for cancelLocalNotifications actually do (if anything) on Android?
  • How do you cancel individual scheduled local notifications on Android? (What parameters can you use to match notifications?)

Hi, I was able to finally find success with this cancelLocalNotifications method.

The README leads us to believe that the following will work for android: PushNotification.localNotificationSchedule({ userInfo: { id: ‘123’} }); PushNotification.cancelLocalNotifications({ id: ‘123’ });

But it does not…

Instead, do this: PushNotification.localNotificationSchedule({ id: ‘123’ }); PushNotification.cancelLocalNotifications({ id: ‘123’ });

Confirm it working. But only with string type of property ID
