Notifications iPad

I'm having some difficulties with Notifications.

1. I often get a "Connect to iTunes to get Push Notifications" message when I click on an app. Someone from the Genius Bar told me this is a message to advise me to set notifications in Settings. On at least one app, I've set the notification to "On" for everything but Sound and yet I still continue to get this message when I open that app. Any ideas?

2. I'm now beginning to question this Genius answer because if is was just about setting Notifications, why would there need to be any reference to iTunes when everything takes place on my iPad?

3. On a reminder app I've set a timer and set everything in Notifications to On but I'm not seeing any badges.

Obviously, I'm doing something wrong but don't know what it is. I'm not sure if these two have anything to do with each other but I welcome any thoughts you may have. Thanks.
