for people NOT using a Samsung device: I was able to diable the app badge notifications by using ROM Toolbox Pro. From the main ROM Toolbox Pro screen go to: App Manager > [Tap on app that you want to remove app badge notification] > Swipe from right to left until you are under 'Advanced' > Advanced Freeze > Under 'Receivers', tap on anything similar to 'NotificationBroadcastReceiver' > Tap 'Ok' to disable
