Will see how it goes after launch on the App Store. It all goes down to money, because running push notifications isn’t cheap :)
You can use Pushover API to send push notifications to the Pushover APP, and it’s free. I think you should include it.

I checked it out and will have it in mind. Unfortunately the real cost from push notifications comes from your own server that you need to be running. Sending messages to Apple (what Pushover does) is the easy part.

Let’s say that 100 people start using GreenPaw (at the moment they are ~20). To have push notifications, first I need to know that something new has happened. The app can’t be running in the background, and the only option is a web server. Then I need to be making API calls to Envato for each user, all the time. The problems here are that this costs CPU and bandwidth, which cost money (not $3/month hosting kind of money). Now imagine if there were 1000 or 10000 users.

And let’s not forget that Envato might not like all those non-stop API calls :)

I’m not saying that it’s impossible to have push notifications, it just costs a lot of money to keep the service running. I would love to implement this feature if I see that the app is successful and I won’t lose money at the end :)

Cheers

No problem :)

At the moment I’m using a WordPress Plugin that runs on my server made by JustinScheetz to get Push Notifications via the Pushover App.

Just wondering if it would be difficult to create a script/plugin that we could run on our own server to get the Push Notifications on the GreenPaw App. This would solve the server costs issues for you. Would this be difficult to achieve? :)

Cheers

Yes, that’s definitely possible!

You could sell this script here on CodeCanyon just to pay off the time you spend developing this ;)

I’d love to give this a whirl if you’re still looking for people.

This is looking so good! Really nice to see the ratings change and statistics feature. Looks pretty solid already, will let you know if I find any issues.

Great work.
