Pushover, a "simple push notification service" that essentially allows web services, scripts, and a lot more to send notifications to your mobile device, got an update recently to version 1.6 (and soon after, 1.6.1), which brought on a couple more nifty features.

Namely, the update brings support for DashClock, the popular clock/information widget that has gained immense support in its first few weeks of existence. Now DashClock can show you how many Pushover notifications are waiting for you.

The update also brings support for the lauded Pebble Smartwatch, allowing the gadget to receive forwarded notifications, provided you've got the Pebble app, and the watch is paired with your phone.

Version 1.6 also brings notification receipt support, and some handy fixes and minor changes.

Besides the app's update, Pushover's API has gotten some attention since the last time we covered the app. The API allows for "quiet hours," unique per-notification sounds, and widgets (both home and lock screen).
