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

Question to developer It works fine when the app is open, but when I trigger notifications and it says that I will receive a notification in 10sec and if I close the app completely, I do not receive the notification unless I open the app again, sorry for this question if you have developed this to work only when the app is open, If not then something else is wrong.

It does what it promises - it sends you test messages It's a great app no doubt - I only wish you could make it like 20sec so you can send your device to sleep (and it had time to disconnect). Also some advice (help file) would help allot - so I know now that I receive but still have to email myself (or pushbullet) a lot for testing.

Wonderful Tool I suggest this tool to all users having problems with our app's push notifications. This proves to them that it's a device config problem and not our app when this test app fails to send them a notification. Though I've had users complain that our app and this app are crap when it doesn't work. ...Sigh.....
