Despite its name, Pushover is no, well, pushover. This easy-to-use push notification service allows web services, scripts, and a bunch of other apps to send alerts to your mobile device, and when combined with a site like IFTTT, it can bend the internet to your will. Now, a year and a half after the app's debut, the Pushover team has updated the app to version 2.0, giving the app a new look and filling it up with new functionality.
Pushover 2.0 comes with a new slide-out menu that makes it easier to manage the many different services that are hitting your device with notifications. Tilting a tablet into landscape mode will make the app list permanently visible, and tapping an app will filter out all other notifications. There's a new message view that presents each notification in larger text. They can be shared from this screen, if interesting, and deleted if not. And speaking of erasing messages - "swipe to delete" is now built-in, and messages dismissed on one device will also be removed from your others. Here's the full change log.
Swipe message list to the right to see all of your Pushover applications and filter messages by app
Swipe individual messages to the left to easily delete them
Pull down on message list to quickly perform a sync
New individual message view
Notification dismissal sync
New optional feature lets you dismiss/clear alerts from the notification bar on one device and automatically hide them on your other Pushover Android devices
Pushover costs $4.99 to use, and there isn't a free version to try out before purchasing. Still, this is a great deal of power packed into a pretty small package.
