So I’ve been using Notifo for a while now and I must say, lovely service. Unfortunately, they will be closing down..
In my quest for a new push notification provider, I stumbled upon Pushover.
Pushover is by far the only service that can deliver (free) push notifications to both iOS and Android platforms, with a simple API, and a lot of cool options. Even authentication is very easy (not like Prowl). Have a look at their api docs.
Here’s the php class I wrote for Pushover:
And here’s how you use it:
<?php include('Pushover.php'); $push = new Pushover(); $push->setToken('app token goes here'); $push->setUser('user token goes here'); $push->setTitle('Hey Chris'); $push->setMessage('Hello world! ' .time()); $push->setUrl('http://chris.schalenborgh.be/blog/'); $push->setUrlTitle('cool php blog'); $push->setDevice('iPhone'); $push->setPriority(0); $push->setTimestamp(time()); $push->setDebug(false); $go = $push->send(); ?>
Good luck! And let me know which cool projects you used this for! 🙂
