Pushover & IFTTT Join Forces To Enable Push Notifications To Android & iOS Phones [Updates]

Ads by Google

If you own an Android phone (2.2+) or an iPhone, and you are addicted to push notifications, then you’re in luck.  The automation service, IFTTT, which we have featured quite a few times here on MakeUseOf, has partnered up with Pushover to give you your push notification fix.

Sometimes there’s information we need right away, and it is often best if we get a notification on our phones about it, so we can stay up-to-date or be reminded. For example, do you want the latest breaking news headlines, or perhaps be told when you have a direct Twitter message? Or maybe you prefer to know when special offers are posted on Amazon or if rain is forecasted for tomorrow, so you can remember your umbrella? IFTTT, which can easily handle of all these notifications and more, will now send them to your smartphone using the Pushover app.

All you have to do is buy the Pushover app [iTunes Link | Google Play Link], install it on your phone, create a free account (which takes mere seconds) and you’re all set to go.

To promote their partnership, Pushover is selling their app at the discounted price of 99 cents which is an absolute bargain, and a good investment. Grab it while you can.

Hit the link below to find out more about what both services can do for you.

    I’m curious [and yes I did “some” reading before commenting].

    I’m currently using ifttt to SMS medal results to my phone.

    If someone has unlimited txt messages, what are the benefits to pushover? I couldn’t find a decent review of pushover online.

    Was the pushover agreement in place before ifttt supported SMS? Or am I just being incredibly thick-headed about something obvious?

      Personally my thought for pushover is for Wi-Fi only devices such as my Nexus 7 tablet. There are a lot of notifications I get that I don’t need ASAP and don’t want it interrupting me on my phone. So I send it to Pushover and it works wonders. Plus I have came up with a great way to use it with my parents who don’t have text messaging but have email. Had them texting my MMS email and then when I’d reply it would not come out right for them. So I created an email that forwards to the Pushover email, my parents email that and then I get the message notified with a link to open Gmail on my tablet and reply back. Works great.

    How long did it stay at $0.99? I’m back from holiday, checking my feeds and Play wants £2.54 or about $4. It’s only a few days after publication. Less than a week!

    With not even a free trial (10 days is enough, a month better), this is one potential customer that doesn’t have the cash to gamble.

    Have faith in your product and let me see it before I have to fork out.

    That’s why I love this site! I’ve never stumbled across IFTTT or Pushover but they are both awesome services. A soon as I read this I signed up for IFTTT and bought the iPhone app. There are sooooo many things this can do, looks awesome!!!

    Good stuff. I use ifttt a lot. I’ve never heard of Pushover before, but I’m eager to try it out.
