New Feature: Instant Notifications to your Android device or iPhone!

I've added a new feature to UER. You can now receive instant notifications to your Android phone or iPhone device, via Push technology, when you receive a new message on UER, or when someone posts in a thread you've favourited.


More features will be added soon, such as notification of new comments on your photos.


Here's how you activate this new feature.

1. First, you'll need to install the Pushover app from the Android Market or iTunes store. I didn't create this app, and it isn't free. But the cost of the app basically includes free unlimited notifications from other services too, besides just UER. Considering how useful this app is, I thought $3.99 was a good price.

Grab it here: https://pushover.net/clients

2. Next, install the app and create an account with Pushover. You can do this right on your phone.

3. Now you'll need your Pushover User Key. Use your new login credentials to log in to www.pushover.net, and right on the front page there should be your User Key (You may need to click the Pushover logo after logging in again). Copy this key to the clipboard.

4. Finally, open your UER profile and select Special Settings & Options. At the bottom of this section is a place to paste your User Key. Paste it in here, making sure all of the capitalization stays the same. Press Save. And you're done!

You'll now receive an INSTANT notification anytime someone sends you a UER message, with a link to go directly to that message.

OK, I've just made this feature even more useful: It now sends notifications when a new post is made in a thread that you've 'Favourited'.

Woo!

the "remove banner" button does not work for this banner. bug or plot to get everyone to use this app? either way, that candy looks delicious.

Sorry, what was that you were saying about forever alone?

Nice!

Unrelated to UER, but what kind of setup are you running for that doorbell?

You should make an app that randomly hangs up on phone calls and shows Buttram laughing manically at you.

Knowing Av and his apartment, I'm surprised his toilet doesn't update via PushOver.

I've installed the app and have followed all your listed steps, but I'm still not getting any notifications. Is there something that still needs to be configured?

Av - marginally related...

If that's your phone in the picture, how happy are you with it? I'm due for an upgrade on my phone.

It is my phone, and I love it. It's so fast, both in terms of data thanks to LTE, and in terms of application speeds thanks to tons of ram and a dual-core 1.5ghz proc. It's my first non-HTC phone in like, 8 years, and there's not much I miss from the HTC world.

ok. app installed on my Droid tab and ipad.

Lets see if it works.

EDIT: installed

received test notifications via pushover website
- however, notifications were via Droid Pull-Down notification
- and PushOver in-app message
- no audible alert at all.

never received test notifications for favorited posts

will keep playing with it.
