Well its official guys, iPhone 3.0 has the push notification service. 3rd party applications can now utilize this service to alter/notify the end user on updates/changes in real time without launching the actual application. I’ve been looking for this for a long time and I cant wait to get my hands on it. I’ve posted my cry out here almost a year ago. I’ve also requested it here.
Notification service will allow me to stay connected with my site visitors and clients. So instead of having to check my IM account now and then when I am mobile, I could just rely on this service to alert me whenever someones trying to talk. This also means now iPhone doesnt have to ping to gmail (I use google apps) servers ever 15 mins to get emails, saves a lot of battery.
