  • Push Available for Testing - All Devs


    Apple today sent out an email to all registered iPhone devs letting them know the Push Notification service is live for testing now. Up until now, only a few select developers had access to push - now the floodgates are open for anyone to test live.

    Here comes push, people.

      Apple's Push Notification Service (PNS) allows developers to send notifications to your phone after you've closed out of the application. For example, if you use an IM app like Beejive or AIM, after you close it you are disconnected from the server and if someone sends you an IM, you won't know until you log back in. With PNS, if someone sends you an IM, there will be a notification for you that someone sent you something. Pretty interesting although I still wish for true background processes.

      Also, I'm working so I might be able to get a Mac soon. Just not soon enough.

      Push isn't all that, backgrounding would have been better.
      How the hell is push supposed to help listen to the radio whilst surfing Safari, that is unless Apple make their own radio!

      When 3.0 is released for the public. Push isn't actually "live" it's just available for developers to begin testing their apps with it. They're aren't any push apps available because the developers have to make them first. So once 3.0 is released to the public, in the summer, then we'll see push capable apps in the app store.

      Because I always read about this stuff a day or two before it shows up on MMi. I still check MMi because of the comments, and they occasionally get info up before other people. My favorite iPhone news source is iPhoneAlley, but MMi definitely has better forums.

The fact is that MMi is among the best and most comprehensive Apple forums in the world and we try our best. For those of you who claim we are late, look yourself in the mirror because I'm sure you didn't jump to write up an ORIGINAL review for us to move to the News section of this forum.
      Exactly, that's what I thought! Do you read my mind?
