Notify.Events Apps for Android and iOS

We bet you already know that Notify.Events offers over 50 notification recipients to choose from. These are the familiar instant messengers, SMS, voice calls, and push notification applications. It is the latter that will be discussed today.

The catalog of available Notify.Events recipients already contains services for receiving push notifications but they can’t always offer a user-friendly interface due to many unnecessary functions and may charge additional fees.

Therefore, we have developed our own push notification apps for our users: Notify.Events for Android and Notify.Events for iOS. Subscribers, meet applications. Applications, meet subscribers. :)

Well, now we can move on to a closer acquaintance. In this article, we will tell you how the apps work, what features are available, and how to set everything up in order to start receiving push notifications on your device. Let’s go!

Notify.Events apps features

Our applications are designed to receive instant notifications about important events occurring in source services: new online store orders, server crashes, CCTV snapshots, etc.

That being said, Notify.Events for Android / iOS are client applications. This means that all notifications coming from sources are processed by the Notify.Events service itself, and the app acts as a recipient, triggering push notifications on your device. Therefore, in order to use the application, you must already have an active Notify.Events account (register on the website) and a created channel. Read more about how to create and set up a channel here.

However, the functionality of applications is not limited to short pop-up messages. The apps also allow you to:

  • see a list of notifications received,
  • view the full text of each notification,
  • follow the links included in the notification,
  • download attached files and images.

Due to such a minimal, but sufficient set of functions and settings, we managed to create an user-friendly and not overloaded interface. There is no additional fee for using the application - pay only for the Notify.Events subscription (if you use a paid plan).

In addition, just like with other recipients, in your personal account on the Notify.Events website, you can customize your subscription by going to the subscription settings screen. Here you can turn on/off sending notifications to the app, set the types of priority and levels of notifications you want to receive, set time parameters and delayed sending.

  • Unlike the iOS app, the Android app has additional notification settings that you can do from the Settings screen.
  • Firstly, right in the app, you can disable/enable push notifications completely or notifications with certain priority levels (Lowest, Low, Normal, High, Highest). The levels correspond to the levels from the service interface.
  • 17 Android app Settings screen.png
  • What is more, you can go deeper into each priority level and, for example, set for each of them personal sounds, vibration modes and even backlighting - depending on the capabilities of your smartphone. This way, you will no doubt distinguish an important notification from other messages in chatting apps and won't miss it.
