Push Notification Test

Push Notification Test


*** ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION ***
Do not install if you don't get the purpose of this App. Do not leave a stupid 1 star review if push notifications are not working for you and do not write me mails asking if I can fix the App or even your device.



This App let's you test Push Notifications (GCM) on your device. Can be helpful if Push Notifications are not working in an App on your device.

What you need is:
-Latest Google Play App installed
-Google Account set up in Google Play
-Working and active network connection

How does the App work?
1.) App tries to get a push-Id for your device
2.) App tests network connection
3.) App sends your push-Id to our test server
4.) After 5 seconds you should receive a push notification, which will be displayed using a Service.
5.) Service acquires a partial wakelock, displays the notification, releases the wakelock and shuts itself down.
6.) App tries to unregister from push updates

Recent changes:
1.4 Fixed a crash that happened on some 2.2 and 2.3 devices
1.3 Made the Test-Notification compatible with several automation Apps (e.g. Tasker)
1.2 Security update
1.1 Updated Server and App to use GCM (Google Cloud Messaging for Android) instead of the deprecated C2DM (Android Cloud to Device Messaging)
1.0 Initial Release

It works but... Please tell what should I do because mine stopped at step 4, 'notifications should arrive in 10 seconds...' and there is no notification after few minutes. Any help will be highly appreciated!

It does exactly as it says!! Works great. I was able to test my push notification ability on my Moto G (by Motorola). Android Version: 4.4.4

Brilliant Not the app, the developers replies to his users reviews have earned him these five golden stars. You sir are a legend and a shining beacon in a desolate land fill of pretentious publishers.

Works as advertised Helped me check my installation of Push Notifications Fixer, without which I had to wait several minutes for notifications to arrive. If there is no message and no notification for phones with problems, you might consider adding a countdown timer for the 3rd step at the end of which the app asks if you received a notification. If the user clicks "no", they could be sent to a support page or forum that addresses exactly this issue. This could help reduce 1-star reviews by people with connectivity issues.
