First Push Notification app from Apple! Push Notification Menu enabled!
Developers received an email from Apple inviting me to try out the first push notification application this afternoon as reported by sayam.
As a developer actively working with iPhone OS 3.0 beta, we would like your help in testing the Apple Push Notification service. We have selected a pre-release version of the Associated Press app for iPhone OS 3.0 to create a high-volume test environment for our servers.
After the installation of the A/P app, we finally see the notifications tab enabled in the settings app.
Push Notification is here!

Sweet! We finally get push notifications. How do we download this app?"In computer networking, a Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to most network adapters or network interface cards (NICs) by the manufacturer for identification, and used in the Media Access Control protocol sub-layer." (1)
"The Macintosh, or Mac, is a series of several lines of personal computers designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc." (2)

Though it's written for different frameworks, do you know if anyone has copied it and made it available for 2.2.1 users?-Mattymoo
just like you imagined.

How do we get this feature with out being a dev member
05-19-2009, 04:36 AM #10Push is like Good Pop Ups! :-)
i just think about the pop up nightmare...sms - pop up...calendar pop up...20 push notification apps - pop up...just stupid...and the badges or sounds are NOT enough for replacement
God, i just hope someone figures how to use GriP effctively to handle this stuff...this is the thing were the iphone look seriously outdated compared with Android or the Palm Pre

Do you use an Instant Messenger? Do you want to just sit with you iphone on this App and wait until you recieve a message, while doing NOTHING else... I don't think you'd like that.
Lets say you're on youtube and its a longer video, you could close the app and get a pop-up letting you know that the video is ready for viewing... Wouldn't that be helpful?
Tell me your favorite APP, and i could tell you a GOOD POP-UP for it.
FYI - GriP is a POP-UP service!
Also... Everything is elective you can choose whether or not you want to be notified. They aren't changing it, they are adding it. It won't bother you, if you don't let it.

GriP does not popup in THE MIDDLE of the freakin screen! And you can configure the way to interact with it! The iphone notifications system is completely primitive...
Let´s say you choose to use badges...how many pages of apps will you have to check to see if you have new notifications for each one??? And when did the notificatations arrive?? Slowly open, app by app, to know. To have any idea of the content...you also have to open, app by app(no quickview)
GriP is a lesser bad system...with great potential...but please DO compare with the way WebOS (Palm) and Android deal with notifications...or even symbian...and see how retarded the iphone system is...
This is, IMO, the single BIGGEST letdown of an otherwise decent update (3.0)...thank God for jailbreaking
Btw, this was writen at engadget after 3.0 was announced:
A big problem that Apple has yet to address with OS 3.0 is its obnoxious, obtrusive notifications. Where Android and webOS slide a handy “tray” into view to let you know you’ve got something incoming, the iPhone regularly piles on one notice after another, leaving you with a stacked, productivity-stalling, ugly mess of pop-ups. Apple, you kill this kind of annoying garbage in your browser — why do you think users want it in their phone? Even older systems get this one more right than Apple does — both Windows Mobile and the BlackBerry OS use a mixture of pop-ups and background notifications. It’s perplexing that a company so concerned with usability and simplicity has done nothing to address the situation in three iterations of its software.

Before this posting, no one had even been using the PUSH notification feature. As stated at the top of this thread, this is the "FIRST PUSH NOTIFICATION APP". IMO, Engadget's opinion is premature, and is also by no means the "Law of the Land"
You make a weak case my friend, don't let it rest on that... I'm looking forward to a few more arguable points. :-)

I would have to agree that GRIP is just a lavish pop-up, but I ALSO agree that push notifications, are a bit weak for "the best phone in the world."
YES, Thank God for jailbreaking, BECAUSE it gives us "little guys" the chance "use AND help tweak" apps like GRIP.
APPLE may not provide us with real notifications..... YET, but give them time.
-AND, in the meanwhile, lets work with what we got.
P.S. a FANBOY is a diehard fan of a particular thing. In this case APPLE,
AND YES, WE ARE ALL FANBOYS. IF WE WERNT, WE WOULDN'T BE ON THIS WEBSITE.
