In reading the API docs for createMessage it looks like the ios_badges number can be set to an integer, is there a way to increment the existing badge number as well?

Yes, just pass "+1" or "-1" there.

Perhaps you could put this in the documentation?

Neither "Method /setBadge" nor "Method /createMessage" show this as an option.

The only place this seems mentioned is in the GUI. However, it indicates you should use "+n". I never realized that the "n" meant the number to increment.

As I have already said in the e-mail I have sent you, we will definitely adjust our guide to make it absolutely clear. Thank you again for the feedback!
