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

Nice! Simple and effective Was getting a headache trying to figure out why push notifications weren't being sent to one particular device, and this app helped identify that it was just had an issue connecting with gcm. Thank you!
